Default Over 50 - 03-23-2011, 09:51 PM

I am 54, have been training for about 10 years, am in good health, and am considering No and some other supplements/performance enhancers. Warnings on the labels, however, typically state "recommended for 18-50 years old.

What are the potential risks and hazards of using NO, etc, for people over 50?

My non expert opinion is the caffeine may cause heart issues in individuals with high blood pressure or other medical conditions. Most folks over 50 like us have something wrong with them as the result of a sedentary life style, or injuries from a extreme life style.


The mind and the body are interrelated: what you do to one necessarily effects the other. There must be a balance between the two. If your body is strong but your mind is weak, you are a powerful instrument with no direction; such an instrument rarely produces good. If your mind is strong but your body is weak, then you may be filled with purpose and good intentions but have no strength necessary to act on your impulses. You must strengthen your mind to control your body; and strengthen your body so you can always follow the good directions of your mind.

Welcome to IPYU!

I would recommend that IF you go ahead with anything, proceed with caution and low dose it. Pay close attention to the instructions and base your caution off of it's typical use. I'm no expert on this either, but I'll bet if you've been working out for 10 yrs and haven't had any issues that you will do fine. But again, start out with minimal dosing if you do it.

Thanks! I plan on starting slow, just in case.........and see what the results are. I've been only using creatine and am very satisfied with the results, but I'm also ready to try something more aggressive. Anyone currently using NO-explode? Any comments on results?

You'll see in my signature that I use SuperPump 250. I also still have some MuscleTech NanoVapor which I also like.

There are others here that swear by Jack3d.

Me personally, I don't care for most of BSN's products including the NO-explode.

superpump250 and jack 3d are both solid products.id agree to start with a lower dose and go up gradually.
