    Im guessin more people will have answers for you if you posted what your diet is... and how much creatine you are taking and how much protein how often... lay out a normal supplement and diet day for us and everyone can go from there

    oh almost forgot...
    what kinda workouts have you been doin lately (sets and reps and types of lifts)
    because i know guys who have all the supps in the world, but never change up their workouts... cycling workouts is as important as cyclin supps imo

    If not then there is something wrong with your diet and or exercise regime. 7 weeks man, this is not about the quick fix, your in the wrong sport if you don't have patience.

    No it's that fact that you want results in 7 weeks and 7 months is not much time. You can't think of this in terms of short time periods. Impatience usually negative long term effects. Just be satisfied that you are making progress and if you are not then look to your diet first, your routine second.

    Dream is right! BUT! Stick with hard low rep work outs...5x3 or a 5x5. Stick with multi-joint lifts for 3 weeks that will put slight slight slight size on you. Next 4 higher rep single joint movements,with good diet and cardio. Try a good pre-workout A.K.A. purple wrath or White Flood by Controlled labs are good! Make sure you eat at least 70% of your protein and use the rest as a nice little after touch to your workouts or small meal.

    It can be done in 7 weeks Depends on how knowledgeable you are with working out, how in tune you are with your body, how much you know about food....

    ... and how much $$$$ you gotz
    Freedom means nothing here.

    Depends on what your trying to do. I know you can drop about 5% body fat if you go on a precontest diet, it will cost you muscle though. You can make some muscle gains not anything really that significant really 5 or 6 lbs would be very good but your likely going to gain some fat. Anything you try to do in a hurry will have a price and I'm not just talking about financial. Quality gains and fat loss is done over time. I mean if I do a precontest diet it is usually going to be 17 to 20 weeks and that's as fast as it gets.

    I'm not saying he won't get any results, I am saying that he shouldn't be thinking in terms of short term and not jeoprodize long term goals in favour of short term.

    Take an epistane/methyl vol/tren/phera-plex/3 AD stack cycle for about a year, and don't worry you don't need a PCT.

    Don't forget to wash the pills down with a good ol glass of jack and coke, and you one set mother****er.





    jk - 5 grams creatine (I recommend creapure) whey protein, casein, protein, and a **** load of food.

    try a creatine loading phase.. it will add water weight and some guys get acne
    i realized when i snapped out of the 3x10 routine and did a creatine load for 1 month on 2weeks off (see water weight go away) and then another month on 1 gained 15 lbs total and after the water went away i kept 11-12 lbs
    ..
    oh and when i snapped out of the 3x10 i jumped into 5x5 and loved it
    and besides the creatine i was just takin 24g whey 2 times a day and a couple fish oils..

    I said it before and I'll say it again everything works just not for very long. 5X5 willl only work for a short period of time just like 3 X 10 did. Periodization is one of the key considerations when planning routines. I prefer that changes occur every 4 weeks if your lifting heavy compound sets for 4 weeks then I would change to do more isolated movements and super sets for instance or a mixture of both or possbily some pre-exhaust work for some examples.

    i was doin a load 20-25g a day (some people say 30) but i was a high school kid with an income of babysittin my little sister so i could only get so much
    did that for 5-7 days, then 5g pre and 5g post workout on trainin days
    on non trainin days i just did 5g with my breakfast whey
    did that for a month and then 2 weeks off and then 1 more month on.. and by then it was football season
    ..
    oh for sure a must on periodization, i only did the 5x5 for a month then back to 3x10 to see strength increase for the 2 weeks then back to 5x5 for the second month... then my coaches had us do 3x10 and random lifts random amounts of days during the week during the season and it was barely enough to maintain what i had accomplished over summer

    good reading on creatine:
