First Time Taking Creatine Monohydrate

Firstly I would like to begin by explaining what creatine monohydrate is and what its effects are: creatine is a performance enhancing supplement used by athletes and bodybuilders. It is naturally found in food sources such as meat and fish. There are many forms of creatine but the most popular among athletes is creatine monohydrate because it has the highest concerntration of the creatine molecule than the other forms.   Creatine increases the amount of water that enters your muscles, and it increases energy available to muscle therefore preventing muscles from being broken down to amino acids. It hydrates and energizes your muscles therefore speeding up muscle recovery and preventing your muscles from getting tired too quickly. With working out, what creatine basically does is to give you more energy to work out for longer but still be able ro recover quickly, hence you you build more muscle and be able to lift heavier and do more reps. Heres a cool site to learn more about creatine http://www.creatinemonohydrate.net/.


Took Creatine in September


The first week I took it I did not feel any different, but after the loading phase I started to feel the effects. I always took it after my workout, but I realised the first few reps at the gym I did not feel any different but I noticed I'd be tired and then go have a sip of water (creatine makes you thirsty all the time, you have to drink like 3 litres of water a day). After I have a sip of water I would feel energized all of a sudden, I would go and lift the weight that I was struggling with just moments before with ease and then some. With the aid of creatine I was able to lift heavier and I started looking bigger. People said I would decrease in size if I stopped using it but at the end of september I did stop and did not lose any mass, infact I gained. I only gained a kg in the 21 days I was on creatine. In october I was 78kg, the heaviest I have ever been and people were starting to notice all my hard work. My shirts and t-shirts had all gotten tighter and I had managed to grow my arms a little bit.
