Hey guys, a friend of mine showed me this site, ive been reading it solid for the last couple weeks and finally decided to register
so yeah, im 17, i was first introduced to weight training sometime in jr high, however i really never stay with it and just did it on and off throughout my highschool years (just graduated this june)
now just recently ive been getting more serious about my workouts
my stats are
16 percent body fat (according to this internet calculator i found, i don’t think its very accurate)
but anyways to get to the point, ive been contemplating taking creatine for the last little, but im weary of what it will actually do for me
what i want to happen, is to increase my strength and gain more muscle definition(which probably means lose body fat right)
would creatine help me with my goals? if i ate a healthy diet, lifted, and did cardio (sprinting and running) would this enable me to increase my lifts while reducing body fat?
from the short reading i did on bulking/cutting, it sounds like its impossible to be burning off tons of body fat and increase your lifts at the same time
so yeah, would creatine help me with this?
i read somewhere that creatine helps decrease body fat? is this true? or will it just water me down?
thanx alot guys
