  1. Question Understanding Creatine: Does it work?


    Hey everyone, I'm really interested in Creatine. The thing is, I don't plan to take it forever. I was wondering one of the biggest key factors that everyone tends to wonder, does it work? Not gain muscle, but working as a full. If I take it for months, then quit using it, will my muscle mass decrease? I've heard a few people in our gym say if you quit taking it, you lose muscle mass. True or Fiction? Let me know, that way I know if I should take it or not.

    Thanks for your help, Devin.


  2. Use the search function, lots of information to be had on creatine as it's probably THE most validated supplement on the market.

  3. Creatine may actually increase LBM (in a non-H2O dependent manner) due to its ability to upregulate certain genetic machinery associated with anabolism/anti-catabolism.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    While your advise is great,like always Cooper.Someone completley new to supps and working out may not,most likley ownt understand..So to speak in this lingo to a newb,is hardly impressive and not really helpful.maybe give it to him in a way he can understand,just saying man. everything doesnt always have to sound so complex and scientific bro =)

    while I and many others here know what you mean,these rookie kids dont.

    not trying to be a dick,but im thinking this kid read your response and has no fkn clue at all what your talking about.

    Maybe he should figure it out, the response wasn't that complicated, and it was written in english.

  13. Creatine doesn't work for everybody, I think it's like 30% of people don't respond to it.
    Just do all the research you can and then try it, only way you'll know.
