I don’t want him to take it, but he does and I can’t stop him. So I’m joining him, not for my benefit but for his?
I’m only doing maintenance level lifting this year. My last squats were only like 50 odd kilos, even that affects my hard runs if Indont time it right. So I’m not here for the MadGainz but he is…He’s trying to get all the plates on the bar.
Having reread the convo we were chatting in the strength thread back then, I promise to start doing planks okay?
from what I recall, creatine is a pretty good supplement for those involved with power sports (lifting, rugby etc) but of little beneft for endurance sports. as for helping him put on weight, I’m not sure creatine on it’s own will help and he really needs to increase his overall protein intake.
Its not clear from your post, what you are trying to achieve here. For him to stop loosing weight? For him to gain weight? To understand if its safe for him to take creatine? What the benefits of taking creatine are?
“My son won’t listen to a word I say, as usual, so can I get some of your opinions so that he can ignore those as well?“
I’m not trying to achieve anything or to get him to do anything, but if you all said something negative I’d pass it on to him so he could ignore that too. No one has, so I’ve bought the creatine and will try to monitor whether he sticks to the recommended doses or goes crazy with it.
He wants to gain muscle mass. I suspect the real problem is that he doesn’t eat enough, but as above, he wont listen to me.
The loading stuff has been debunked by some study I read a while ago, Ive tried to find it but no luck.
Used it when playing football, I put on weight, it tasted like piss, and I dreaded the daily drink. Stopped after a couple of months, any benefit, yes explosive speed improved over short distances, perfect for football. It certainly didnt help gain muscle or anything. It will help body builders gain muscle as they can do more explosive lifts maybe, but its the training, not the supp that does that.
