    Default Is creatine ok?

    So my buddy started creatine capsules the other day and he said the guy at GNC said they were made with a chemical that won't have your musles sag once you stop the regiment. Since creatine isnt a good thing for anybody to take without water,i wonder if it would be ok for the offseason if i just took the regular amount and did all my workouts the same,jsut with more water.....What do you think?I weigh 160 and i wanna be at 60 or 71 for next year

    its not bad to take i know alot of sucessful wrestlers that take it what you do is you take it until 2 weeks before your first match and then youll lose the extra waterweight that the creatine pumps into you and thus you will be at your alotted weight then after that you drop to 7% body fat and your golden

    I'm not sure how much sense it would make to take creatine to build for wrestling. It is mainly water weight that you retain, right? I would just stick with old school protein. Fish is great. Just lift hard.

    You can make great strength gains on creatine, not just "water weight" if your goal is to get stronger and bigger then creatine would be great for you as long as you dose properly and remain hydrated.

    I read somewhere that when taking creating you retain water but only about 2% or 3% more when using it. If anything watch your sodium intake rather than creatine. I take creatine and feel great when I train, i drink plenty of water of course but i don't feel bloated at all. I've been taking Kre-alkalyn for 2 years now and had no problem dropping weight.

    From what everyone has told me, most creatines cause a ton of water retention....but I could be wrong/misinformed.

    There is some water retention, but that's not the point. That isn't why you take it, you get great strength gains on creatine, simple as that.

    Ok. I might start taking it along with Glutamine and BCAAs...
