Supplements for strength and endurance.
Despite taking Creatine ethyl ester , my strength has dived rather than increased and so has my endurance.Today at the gym after a 2 day break was hard work (chest day)
I have 5/6 meals per day, take VPX Synthesize post workout (also has creatine in it and EAAs )plus the usual whey /carbs
My pre workout meal about 90 mins before training is small amount of potatoes , fish and some veggies.
I also take leucine (leukic) pre and post wo.
Ive been training a few years and this hasnt happened for a long long time .So long ago i carnt remember how i overcome this.
I dont want to go the stims route but are considering cordyceps and or rhodiola rosea.
Any suggestions please
Thanks for your time.

Ditch the CEE and pick up some Creapure.
Additionally, don't forget that sleep, stress and life in general has a huge impact on performance. Not to mention total caloric intake - in general, if you're feeling under-recovered, more food can help.

Try listening to some music while working out. I've found I can put 10-20 more lbs. on some lifts just by listening to some metal while I workout.

CEE has been proving not to be as effective as regular creatine monohydrate. Use creapure. Its micronized creatine monohydrate and it works. Take it with your Leukic, alpha lipoic acid and NAC, maybe carbs with this combo as well if your allowing them in your diet anyways. Beta alanine is another solid additon too.

creatine nitrate is said to be 1000xmore soluble than regular creatine.
i would look at APS mesomorph and creatine nitrate. look at the logs!!!!!

Creatine Nitrate and Beta Alanine. Or if you prefer to go the cheap route....creapure. Its a great product.

Mesomorph per scoop has roughly 2 grams of creatine nitratre, stacked with 4 caps of pure creatine nitrate, the results are drastic and absolutely measurable.
I don't sing the praises of many supps, in the past I've done so regarding Triazole and I'm doing it now with Mesomorph and creatine nitrate. If your diet/training program are all tailored correctly, and you add creatine nitrate into the mix the results are incredible....period.

If you want to try something new and give your body a break, I recommend using Assault - it already contains creatine, so you won't need a separate creatine product, and it contains minimal caffeine. I have recently started using it, and trust me, going a day without using it, I notice the difference!
If you decide not to try Assault, then definitely switch out the CEE for creatine monohydrate or something like Kre-Alkalyn (of you prefer pills) or CreaPure (if you prefer powder).

thanks everyone for your advice . will def look further into your suggestions
if theres one thing that really bugs me , its slogging away in the gym and leaving thinking you might as well stayed at home.

believe me you will be glad you did. it is by far the best i have used-the creatine nitrate in mesomorph is so much better than other forms of creatine that it's unreal.
i will never use any other form of creatine from now on!!!!!

I use creapure and beta alanine along with some ibcaa's and peptopro (map). I've been hearing better and better things about creatine nitrate though, definitely on my 2011 supplements to try list. Punch yourself in the face or make a gun with your fingers and push it into your temple and imagine a real gun, sounds strange but honest to God it helps. Screaming really gets your sympathetic nervous system going as well.

After all that, I tried Creatine Nitrate and let me tell you it's COMPLETELY DIFFERENT! I have had some of the best pumps ever on this, dosing at 8 caps (3g creatine nitrate) 30 minutes pre-workout. It restored my faith in creatine (though I think it's the nitrates doing the heavy lifting).
You can check out my log if you like, but so far I've been incredibly impressed with APS and their entire lineup, especially creatine nitrate. It's something you should try!

Since you already have the Sythesize, you could try taking that while you're working out. The PeptoPro hydrolyzed casein should help with endurance and not cause the cramping that other proteins could cause if taken intra-workout.
All this talk about it and I may have to try this Creatine Nitrate everyone speaks so highly of. I've always been keen on Creapure. I think the idea of dropping the CEE for another form + adding Beta-Alanine would be a good route as well.

on top of what everyone else has been saying, get a quick burning carb in right before your workout, maybe even a protein bar. You'll see the difference immediately
