Why dont they work anymore


Hi I am 27 and my problem is fitness supplements and even energy drinks dont have an affect on me anymore I noticed this a little over a year ago when I got back into the gym after having a year of due to work, the Gym supplements I take and took before my time of are(Reflex trimatrix) which used to have me bouncing of the ceiling have no affect also my weight gain protein (reflex instant mass) does nothing , its even to the point that I dont feel that little buzz from coffee or a redbull .
I use them in the recommended dosages and I often have an of period of 2 weeks to let the body recover and stop it adapting .
I dont get it the reaction I used to get from this stuff was amazing I worked 10 x harder than I do now with no problems but now I struggle every time I go to the gym.

If anyone has any suggestions on whats goin on im all ears.
 
P.S I dont really drink much coffee and I dont bother with energy drinks as they dont do the job anymore so the only stimulant I have is trimatrix.

    Recommended doses may not be enough if your training hard, Reflex use small scoops so the doses can be 2 or even 4 scoops. Or in other words one scoop isn't one dose.

    Up it to four scoops, two of those little scoops would do nothing for most serious trainers.

    Il try 3 and see wot happens I also noticed that trimatrix hasn't got Niacin in it any more which I think may also be part of the problem with this supp for me , I used to luv my Niacin rush's shame there isn't a trimatrix equivalent  they all seem to be creatine  or energy supps not both.

    You maybe need a break from it for a month or so or you need a higher dose but at 3/4 scoops you will fly through the tub tbh, cheaper way would be to get caffeine to take pre wo.

    Personally 1 scoop or 1 1/2 scoops should do the job for me as per scoop it contain 150mg caffeine.

    as others have said - adrenal fatigue. there is a product called 'reset AD', but taking a long break is probably a better idea.

    I dont notice much from pre-workout supps/energy supps either, i have to take above the recommended does to get anything (even when i started taking them) to get anything.

    I took 6weeks off all caffeine, then when I had my first coffee I was bouncing off the stratosphere.

    Your body gets used to it and therefore you end up needing more and more.

    LoL. It's not how many stimulants it takes you to get a good workout that is the measure of a 'serious trainer'.
