apparently ervin gainer a super short guy sports con cret and holds world records. Does this sound legit? hes supposedly 4ft9 or shorter and has dead lift, squat and bench records all because of. Me and my friend have 30 days of it and are going to try it out for 2 weeks as a form of creatine.

I bought the powder. Seems legit. If theres no loading no bloating and you can take less. Why not. Price is reasonable. Not cheep but not pricey.

You don't have to load Mono either and there is no bloating. It seems the reason people bloat up on mono is because they are taking too much creatine and not enough water. All you need is 5 grams a day, no need to load it. Drink enough water and you will be fine. I think it is extremely pricey. It is $49.99 for 75 1/4 teaspoon servings, and divide that in half if you are over 150 pounds, because you will have to dose it twice a day. Not worth it at all price wise...Just look at lot closer at the dosing instructions on the website, it is FAR FROM WORTH IT!.

Science is always advancing and changing what we take and how. But, IMO, there has been VERY little advancement in creatine technology since monohydrate became popular in the 90s. Yes, supplement companies will want you to think that their cutting-edge kre-alkyl-ethyl-malate-creatine is superior... but I think not, ESPECIALLY when considering price.
I think the biggest advancement was the advent of micronized monohydrate. I used to get the sh!ts from regular CM, but haven't had a single episode w/ micro.
Just my $.02.

Micro just means small. Really to me Micro creatine just means its fine and smooth and no clumping and nothing more.

Well I am low on super pump 250 and my other pre work out creatines i.e black powder nanovapor etc so I will try this form for my next 4-6 weeks. Plus its a cap no taste and makes wild claims like the rest.

Oh dear god. This guys lifts at record levels because he's a genetic freak, not because of any supplement.
03-18-2008, 03:45 PM
The guy may have genetics but hes so tiny. Its amazing to know that even shorter people can lift too with dedication.
03-18-2008, 03:48 PM
Strictly speaking, being shorter is advantageous for lifting. It provides shorter levers, giving more leverage. Although I will say, looking at that guy, for him to be lifting rediculous weight is pretty amazing. It's got virtually nothing to do with Con Cret though.

Not taking anything away from this guy... he's obviously put in a ton of work. But, I did notice the bar is already halfway up the shin before the lift even starts. Short people are generally better suited to DL... especially super-short people.

Well I am short 5ft5 so It would be cool for me to bench 300 and dead 500-700 eventually and squat 300-500 lol.

I used the sample also, 30 serving is 15 days at 200lbs and i didn't notice anything special. Creatine is creatine just buy mono and spend the extra 40$ on something else.
