    Man, I wish I'd started taking creatine sooner. Love it.
    Elaborate a little bit, I never took it.

      I was hesitant to take a creatine product because of all I read about people bloating, and how your muscles become just squishy and not hard, etc. but I haven't experienced any of it. Strong diet, with the creatine, and big time lifting and I've added 10 pounds in a month (midsection barely changed at all), my arms got even bigger, and all of my rep/weight totals have gone up.

        Which one are you taking? I might just try.

        • A lot of the people knock it because "oh my god it's expensive" or "you can just buy a bunch of different supplements, mix them and then get the same ingredients" but I love it. It doesn't taste great, but I mix it with a banana and it's fine.

              I enjoyed Hydrowhey too, but I've just gotten explosive gains off this.

              • anyone take prelift? My parents just bought me the ray lewis endorsed prelift for me. It has 1.5 grams of creatine per serving. You take 1-2 servings before you lift. Should I increase my water intake? I heard you should drink more water when you take creatine.

                • Yes, increase your water intake when you're on creatine.

                    Yes you should. And I take Muscle Pharm Assault. By far the best pre workout I've come across.

                    • I would recommend drinking as much water as possible regardless of supplementation. Low water intake (and just not eating enough/too much) is often the first thing I look for if someone isn't reaching their goals whether that be gaining or losing weight or just being healthier in general.

                          Well, milk has a ton of water so you're getting a lot from that. Jut drink water as often as you possibly can and you will be fine. Most people drink a stunningly low amount of water, like less than a quart a day.

                          • ok sounds good.


                            How is your lifting going Rob? I remember a while ago you said you did 531.

                            Wat assistance do you do for that?

                            I mainly do high rep for my assitance but I was wondering since my bench really really sucks could I do low rep floor presses or CGBP in order to help build my tricep strength up

                              I switched from 5-3-1. Not because it was a bad program, just because I personally don't like combining training for failure and training 4 days per week (which I refused to give up). In terms of increasing bench and tricep strength, personally I have found that heavy (6-8 reps) close grip bench is the best assistance. I would do something like: flat bench (5x5 or 3x8), DB incline (3x10), CG Bench (4x8), whatever else you want (flys, tri ext., skull crushers, etc).
