i use maximuscle promax extreme one month (whey with glutamine) and the next month i use maximuscle cyclone (whey with glutamine, creatine and other supplements) and then repeat
it helps, but dont base your workout and regimes around it.
i take a vitamin tablet in the morning and thats all, i dont believe i need anything else right now.

I agree. I'm not sure if I like creatine or not.

On the one hand, it's good for bulking up. If you're going to cut weight as a fighter/wrestler, the water weight is going to shed off you. That's if you use it regularly and correctly.

On the other hand, a lot of people don't know how to use it. They see it at GNC as some miracle suppliment. If you don't drink a LOT of water, creatine will dehydrate you and can be bad for your health. I usually don't recommend it to anyone, but it can be a good suppliment if used right. However, nothing's better than blood, sweat, and tears.

100% agree with EC Raider.

I used to use it. I loved it but hated weight lifting, I did get bigger while on it, keep in mind it isn't a miracle muscle builder, you gotta work really really hard at the gym. Use it correctly and you'll make gains. The most important thing is to drink lots of water!

I used powder form creatine for just over a year and gained incredible size over a short period however once i had stopped taking creatine the size dramatically vanished off me as if it was just a shadow.

I have had results from creatine with no side effects however from my experience i'd recommend saving your cash and just buying a few big steaks....

I was gonna ask, whatever happened to the serum??When I was 15 I was gonna take it but the guy said I was kinda young and it might not be a good idea. He said for me just to workout hard and drink lots of water. But they were saying at that time a few drops under the tounge was better absorbed then taking the powder. If you stop taking creatine but lift the same or more and drink lots of water can the muscle stay??Or does it just shed water and make you look smaller?

It'll do that if you don't drink enough water.

I know this thread is old but I just happened to stumble on this while this thread was minimized.
