    Basically just looking for everyone who has used Creatine's overall impression of it.

    How much were you taking daily?
    How much were you lifting weekly?
    How did Creatine effect your gains in muscle mass and strength?
    When and if you quit taking it, how was muscle/strength loss?
    What are your current weight/height mesurements?

    Also note any negative effects, if any.


    TIA :hs:

    1 scoop of cell tech (dont know exact measurements)
    4-5x
    gained 7-9 lbs during the cycle (much of it water weight) - strength - about the same/went up a little maybe
    excess waterweight went away - didnt seem to lose too much weight. i gain more off just a high protein diet.
    current - 6'0" 190-195 (fluctuates)

    5g, perhaps i should have tried a higher dose
    4x
    absolutely didn't
    never noticed anything in the first place
    6'4.5", 235

    I still have about 800 grams of regular mono. I'll probably start putting it my shakes once I start working out again. I dont notice shit from it but it reminds me to drink water so it's good for that

    Thanks for the replies everyone.

    Also, with the water weight gain, was that just noticable in muscle, or is it everywhere, ie. face?

    Awesome article.

    Thanks.

    Guess that leaves me one other question, what about water intake? I've heard a lot about it, but this article says nothing.

    No it leaves your muscles with a pump look to them. I've never noticed water retention in my face but I have noticed some weight gains in my penis when I see a pwetty gurl.
