Another nice thing is that my mom gives me money for food so any supplement bought at wal-mart will go on her tab for the most part. Which is why I was thinking of buying their NO product. I have had good success with NO products in the past but I will have to think this one over.

First and foremost I will go back on creatine. Do you suggest doing a load phase or just 5 grams a day?
I know some people say you don't have to load, but I seem to get good results when I keep my intake above 20 grams the first week, and 10 plus after. For me, keeping the level slightly higher seems to work good for strength.

I might be a fluke though. But I never seem to get the same benefits from 5 grams a day.

And if your mother is footing the bill, have at the NOS Pump
