Creatine and Testicular Cancer Oslo1234 3 1 yeareknight (56434): It also concluded that white men were slightly more likely to have cancer than other races. Are you also concerned with that? Let me know if you develop a way to change that. In all seriousness, though, if you're just starting out lifting, I wouldn't take any of that anyway. A good multivitamin and some fish oil is all I would take, in addition to nailing down a good diet. -3X
Muscle Meds Carnivor nraymond 3 1 yearnraymond (1): @Beans ThankYou Buddy :)
Thoughts on creatine GreekLegend 14 2 yearsblakeyt93 (25): Proven to increase strength so good for use whether cutting or bulking. some people say its good for cutting as can help maintain strength/amount of weight they can lift whilst being in a calorific deficit. Creatine doesnt have any calorific value so improved strength at no extra macro cost = win
Creatine/Whey ArchT 11 2 yearsdarklight79 (3079): @nine0seven Thing is, there are some individuals who say that creatine does not work for them but they need to see if their diets are already rich in red meat which already has creatine in it. So I guess if sufficient creatine in red meat were to reach saturation levels, then added creatine wouldn't beneficial.
Creatine Absorbtion Questions (4) SSJ3FinalFlash 7 2 yearsSSJ3FinalFlash (283): @SOLARSUPLEX @FiremanSi @clown @GetBigDieMirin @wannabemuscular Thank you everyone for the great responses!

Creatine ArchT 12 2 yearsdarklight79 (3079): Imo, people accuse creatine mono of causing bloat but don't realize their level of BF% is already pretty high. Of course one would bloat. I use creatine during cutting. I don't bloat.
Creatine vs Whey ArchT 2 2 yearsnine0seven (2569): You can take creatine whenever you want bro. It's a long term effect not short term. Whey is fine after a workout but I'd personally recommend a blend. If not you can mix it with milk.

My shredding suppliments BigLeanCuts 17 2 yearsFrostshock (13324): If you plan on staying natural then yes, you can get everything necessary through diet. Supplements ate purely a convenience. If you've got some extra cash and want to hit your protein goals easier, boom protein powder/bars. Want to train fasted first thing in the morning? Boom tub BCAAs. Even the "essential" supplements like Fish oil, Multivitamins and Creatine can be obtained through diet, it would probably just be cheaper, faster...

Creatine help! nastybeast 3 4 yearssriram (2050): Quick question added to that; ...isn't 20g/day a bit too excessive? I'm doing 5g a day, so either maybe I'm loading too little or that study might have been overdosing...

Acne is not just a spread some cream or take some herbs thing, not at least from my exp. There are multiple kinds of acne and I would ask a Dr. to find out which one you have and then you can treat it accordingly...
Creatine sensitivity optima 3 4 yearsoptima (1): Yeah I bought a huge tub of Creatine monohydrate by usn, tried the stuff for a couple of weeks but it was making me I'll. So I thought it might just be Creatine and that maybe I'll try a pre-workout without it
Which type of Creatine ? DaveyDizzle 22 4 yearseknight (56434): I see what you're saying. I've read that the body loses ~2 grams daily, so I'm patient enough to just run 5 g as a permanent dose. -3X
Creatine Yo Corkey 13 4 yearskickinchicken (8347): The only studies I've read seem to be looking to prove that it does but the conclusion is without real fact. Just assumptions. And much much more often than not it was only found to be more likely in men who are predisposed to androgenic alopecia (male pattern hair loss). If which case they would end up taking Rogaine or something anyway even if they didn't take creatine, which would counter any effects creatine would have in hair loss anyway....

Supplement showdown: Creatine vs. Protein BaiTu 15 5 yearsMonster81 (1678): @tamere01, it's so minimal(if at all) I wouldn't even consider it "weight" in anything whether bulking or cutting. Any immediate weight fluctuation is going to be overall water and food intake for that day. Weighing in first thing in the morning on an empty stomach is the best way to judge.

Sickness bug and creatine ryan_929 7 5 yearswannabemuscular (32058): Creatine is one of the simplest, most beneficial, supps and often way over-complicated. With all the different kinds of creatine, loading, spiking, etc. Just stick with monohydrate and 5 grams per day. Most guys who aren't too big and heavy can even get away with 3 grams per day.
Creatine and Green Tea Piggles 7 5 yearspcamp607 (79): Caffeine by itself is not an actual diuretic unless used in high doses as correctly stated by EK; however, if you are sensitive to caffeine and it has a marked effect on your blood pressure, then it may act as a diuretic. This is because when your blood pressure elevates your body's neurohormonal response will induce diuresis as a means of counteracting this effect. Keep in mind though that the average person can drink about 3-4 cups of coffee...
taking creatine bosssantana 7 5 yearsdwatson (26511): Doesn't matter when you take it, doesn't matter how you take it. If you want it in Juice drink it in juice. If you want to line it up on the kitchen table and snort it like a boss, then snort it like a boss. No need to do a loading phase, just get it in your system and keep it there. -DW

What to do... Treysix 2 5 yearsadam82a (3100): A few things. If I were you I'd cut as new people. Go 300-500 below your maintenance calories. Supplements will not make you fat. You put on bodyfat by eating a calorie surplus. Creatine will not make you fat under no circumstances at all. Read this forum. There are a lot of good threads popping up every now and then. You'll learn quite soon whom's post to look out for.

Are Supplements Neccessary?? cruzuk 13 5 yearsAustralianOak (1504): They are not neccessary as some people have said but are definitely recommended. If you are not reaching your daily nutrient goals then you need to eat more or use supplements. Everyone has already suggested fish oils, multis, proteins etc. Another good supplement is a greens supplement i dont get heaps of veggies in so i find that really helps. Just remember, try not to get caught by the hype and marketing of alot of these supp companies....

I'm a 400m runner and I don't plan on getting huge. I just want to add on some more muscle and then cut hard. And I'm at 150lb/68kg right now, so it's possible.

DFMaster240 11 5 yearsDETERMINED1 (2239): many people have different approaches... with regular creatine monohydrate what has worked best for me is a one week loading phase. followed by 6-8 weeks maintenence. then take 1-2 months off. during loading i take 15-20 grams a day but only 5 grams at a time. i prefer to take it right after a meal because it is best obsorbed when insulin levels are high, plus it can sometimes cause bloating which sucks if your trying to eat afterwards. and...
how much is too much? boettcherboy 17 5 yearsMrMailliw (4494): @Baitu I agree. Someone could do hours of revision a day for a specific exam but be revising just one of many topics in the exam. He is working hard but if he was working smart he would study all topics, weighting his time spent on each according to his current competancy in each topic. Even though he studies less, he will do better (hypothetically). This is why I hate bad form, you are just putting yourself at more risk instead of lowering the...
creatin jacob12 5 5 yearsmikew (11169): Creatine is actually good on a cut because when you diet you inevitably lose some muscle and energy levels are lower so workouts are not as good. But the creatine helps counter this by providing more energy during workouts. You will gain some water weight but not body fat. It should improve your look overall though some people report bloating. Best bet is to give it a shot and see what happens.
Must Gain Weight Need Help! FootballTime6 7 5 yearshaole (2019): your a tiny football player! Eat eat eat. The ideal way to do it is to track your calories, protein, carbs and fat everyday and eat above your maintenance levels. Some of the best ways to eat more is to add extra meals & snacks throughout the day, also using weight gainer shakes and also eating lots of pasta (pasta is a easy/cheap source of calories and carbs). Mainly just eat more calories. Click on the "bulking" tab on this...

Do you take creatine? mikew Jump to first page33Jump to last page 5 yearskospel (199): Yep same here, I also used to take it in my recovery drink but quited due to doctor recommendation :P I didn't see any changes in my training so I just stopped using it until this week I am just so confused when I changed my recovery from 50:50 protein carbs to only whey because my results don't raise anymore so I've been thinking are the simple carbs really that important... Many people say that there's no need to take simple carbs if I just...

Cycling Creatine? Swift 24 5 yearsseansm10 (906): ek - i used a tub of n o xplode then moved to a whole container of jack3d without 'cycling' while i was still seeing benefits from it. the whole euphoric feeling from it wasnt there, i stopped taking it for a week and i took my final scoop of the jar and it was like taking it for the first time all over again. - youl build up a tolerance, just not as significantly as people have you believe. also, i read somewhere on a rather informative bb...
Jack3d + Creatine Ematthews 14 5 yearsSRorhrbac0808 (47098): The powder creatine I use (creapure creatine monohydrate micronized powder) is great. It is 200 servings and costs like 25-30 bucks.. It does not dissolve great so I heat up my water in the microwave and then it dissolves just fine. 5 grams after workout is all you really need.

Creatine B_Brown 2 5 yearsDragonian (4951): In my experience you wouldnt loose your strength at all, also i know people that use creatine all year round and dont neccesarily cycle it. I dont use it at all anymore but thats because i have steak every day. If you are massively worried about loosing stregnth and do choose to cycle it though a pre workout supplement like jack3d has always upped my reps on sets and stuff so i guess give that a try.

How do you take your protein and creatine Xyewx 8 5 yearsAres (219): anal insertion or gtfo
Mixing Supplements driver 2 5 yearsEFJK (2316): When taking creatine your goal is to obviously bulk. Take advantage of the opportunities creatine provides by providing your body with higher amounts of glycogen (carbs) to promote as much muscle mass and growth as you can while using it.

Buying Creatine Monohydrate ( Australia ) JTsLiP 10 5 yearsLP2 (1): Creatine is Creatine. I think Creapure, Kre-Alkaly etc. were just invented that you give the company your money. Just buy normal Creatine Monohydrat and you'll be fine.

Creatine help mike99 29 5 yearsOptimusPrime (1257): I'd recommend taking your creatine an hour out from your gym session, mixed into a glass of pineapple or cranberry juice. Here's an article that might reinforce what I've been saying: "It can take about 1 hour for the creatine to be absorbed into the bloodstream - and from that point you have about 1.5 hours to use the creatine or lose it. . ." clickable text

creatine kylemesner 2 5 yearsbrian12 (9495): Dont waste your money. Just buy creatine mono powder - it works. If you need an energy boost then use something like jacked 3d, but you are then using it for the energy boost, not the creatine.
peoples view on ON Creatine Mic_Cooper 6 5 yearsMic_Cooper (7): yeah i saw jojo post about it not dissolving well and someone surggested warm water so will try tht One prob silly question... can i mix creatine with my protein shake ?? ive always taken them as two seperate shakes but did no if it would mix in ok puttin them together ??
Eating solid creatine (not in juice) JoJo 9 5 yearsCupcake (402): Yeah, as Ankie says use hot water to dissolve it if you got crap creatine. It your body absorbs warm water better too.
Rounded scoop of ON creatine JoJo 5 6 yearsJoJo (69): Great... I have 10 spoons and all of them are different size. I have no idea which one is the teaspoon.

How does creatine increase size? JoJo 15 6 yearsIrishGymSheep (10554): ...if your not holding extra water from creatine then its just not working, also the holding water is the msot important part of it since studies show it doesn't increase strength any more than a placebo.
Optimum Nutrition Hydrobuilder - thoughts? JoJo 6 6 yearsJoJo (69): I never drink more than 1 shake per day. I try to get most of my protein from real food. Also, what do they mean when they say creatine doesn't work unless your muscles are saturated? Does it mean if your body can handle 10g, but you only have 9.9999g, then the creatine does absolutely nothing?
