Damn, I took some yesterday about an hour before upper body workout. It's awesome. I could lift all day long with it.

Sore today, feels good. Why do I need anything but 'tine?

Thats weird , Creatine did nothing special for me.

I think it depends on persons

I never deny variety when it comes to physiology, but creatine will scientifically increase your performance regardless of your genetics. It's a natural compound that you can also get from eating red meat.

Your anaerobic energy (weightlifting) comes from ATP in your skeletal muscles. Creatine, again occurring naturally in your skeletal muscles, converst used up ADP back to ATP for more anaerobic energy.

I've taken creatine and it's done nothing for me.

I also eat a fuck ton of red meat so there's that.

Creatine helps me not on a work out-to-work out basis but more long term. Once I included it I was able to match or beat previous PRs at decently lighter weight when before I wasn't all that close to touching them.

For the most part any pre workout works well for me but I always have to half or quarter the recommended dose because in sensitive to caffeine.

maybe i drink it in the wrong moment though , usually i take it just before workout with whey protein.

I also read that creatine just add water weight to look more big for a moment thats it , many people complains about ED problems too.

RE: Best Preworkout Powders?
Creatine increases water storage within the muscle. Muscles are up to 60% water anyway. It also increases muscular endurance during high intensity training. So does salt, and carbohydrates.

Were not talking a huge increase here. Many people don't ever push themselves hard enough to even see the benefit of creatine.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the only thing that will give you really quick and noticeable results are steroids. Everything else is just another small element that contributes to the bigger picture over the long haul i.e 1+ years. The difference in overall lean muscle gains over a year using creatine VS no creatine might be 1-2 lbs.

Pretty much. Creatine is cheaper than multi vitamins honestly and you just throw a spoon a day into your protein shake.

I don't feel it's much of a benefit to me unless I'm dieting and I'm trying to keep my training intensity up.

If it wasn't already mentioned, Dymatize is the best in my opinion.

I've used Jack3d, C4, Optimum nutrition, Outlift Amped(close second to dymatize), and a bunch of other samples.

Fair warning, Dymatize and Outlift are Stim-bombs and a half. But damn they work.

I find that I can do a few more pull-ups, bench press a few more pounds, and feel less sore when I'm using creatine. It's not particularly expensive, so it's worth it to me.

Really big fan of the Performix line of pre workout. Great flavors and mixability, but most importantly I don't get the low blood pressure and crash that I would get from C4 and some of the other popular ones.
