I am still having great workouts and hit PRs all the time but I just feel like something is missing.

I feel like it is taking me longer to recover and my body just does not feel as good as it used to. Right now I am contemplating taking the cheap creatine and super nos pump from wal-mart and continuing my use of stimulant x. I like this product and it gives me great workouts. I just feel like something is missing. Does this seem legitimate or is it just in my head. I can not tell, but I am also on a limited budget being at college. So I am just not sure right now.

I have also dropped close to 5 pounds since coming to school but I think that is because I eat much healthier at school than I do at home. Just looking for some insight here to see if I am crazy or not. And looking for some guidance from the wise ones within the community, thanks guys.
I like creatine. It always makes me stronger. But, I get insane pumps. I would use creatine, and maybe switch to some form of caffeine pre-workout - since your budget is limited.

Wal-mart's Body Fortress protein powder has creatine it in. You can get your favorite flavor, add in a scoop of instant coffee, and you have a cheap pre-workout drink.

Or try NOW's creatine mono. It's only $17 for 2.2 of creatine mono.

I've tried Wal-marts NOS Pump and got zip from it. But, as we know, NO products work different for each of us.

So even with the Stimulant X you feel like you are losing your edge a bit? That's really too bad.

I would get back on creatine first and foremost, and see what happens.
