So, lately I’ve been thinking about creatine supplementation. I’ve been seriously lifting for about 2 years now, and I take Low-Carb Metabolic Drive. I work out every day and take Metabolic Drive before and after each workout. Although I’m very serious about my lifting, I can’t say I’ve experimented with many different supplements. I have read around T-Nation quite a bit though, and it’s where I purchase my Metabolic Drive as well as where I got the information that encouraged me to start taking it. I’m physically small, about 135 lbs and 5’7 (also, I’m only 16), but in very good shape.
I’ve been well aware of creatine for almost as long as I’ve been seriously lifting. A good portion of the guys at my school take it, although I must say I’ve seen fairly limited results among those I know to take it. But, I’ve pretty much concluded that this is because a hefty portion of them simply think they can get jacked up on creatine without touching a weight more than once every other week. I’ve also seen some very good results in other users who work out more often.
But, enough about other people, because I am, honestly, not considering creatine out of envy or anything. I’m very happy with my physical shape right now, and I’m considering creatine because I have personally taken a sort of curious interest in it. Since I definitely don’t want to stop taking Metabolic Drive, as I’ve been very happy with the results it has produced, I’m looking for advice on how I might be able to start using creatine and Metabolic Drive cooperatively.
I’m open to all opinions and comments on whether or not using creatine is advisable, when the best times to use it and Metabolic Drive respectively are when taking both of them, and what exactly the pros and cons of creatine are. Thanks in advance.
