    Hey


    Im 5'10 160 pounds and work out on and off. The reason that Im on and off is because I usually work alot at a labour intensive job. Annyways I was just going to ask about something for awhile I was taking creatine before or after my workouts. Everything was good and I noticed a difference in my workout and my gains. After awhile though i noticed it seemed to make my heart pump harder when I was standing up? I stopped takingit after that because of palpitations I had. Anyone else notice nething similar?

    Maine probably got it right, there are many "no Xplode" type products that pack the caffine in there so people can "feel" it working. It's all a marketing scam.
