I'm taking HOT-ROX twice a day, so I do get some extra stims, but here's what I'm using right around workouts:
Preworkout: coffee, 2.5g creatine monohydrate
Intraworkout: 5g BCAA Structured Peptides
Postworkout: 2.5g creatine monohydrate, 1 scoop Power Drive, 390mg DMAE, 2 caps fish oil
Biotest's periworkout protocols (FINiBARs, ANACONDA, Surge Workout Fuel, MAG-10) are awesome if you can afford them. I've seen good results with them in the past, but they don't fit into the budget right now.
Also, I think stims are ok in moderation, but I don't like the crazy preworkouts with ingredient lists a mile long. I think they have a lot of fillers, and I very much prefer to just have the right amount of a few select things. HOT-ROX and Spike are about as weird as I like to get on the stim front.
