My diet is solid, has been for about a year
What, specifically, did you eat yesterday?
I’m about to start the WS4SB so my programme is good too (i have previously been training for over a year though, so not a complete newbie).
In the past year, how much have your squat, deadlift, flat bench, overhead press, barbell row, and pull-ups improved?
Do you think it’s worth me taking creatine?
Generally (without knowing the answers to the above questions), no, I don’t. I agree with B rock that there’s nothing “wrong” with you taking creatine, but it’s most likely unnecessary right now.
Do you sleep eight hours each night? Do you eat breakfast seven days a week? What are your training goals? Can you explain how creatine would get you closer to your goals?[/quote]
I see your a coach so your advice is very welcome and i will take it on board.
Yesterday i ate:
Breakfast: Porridge, banana, orange juice
Mid-morning: Peanut butter sandwich on wholemeal bread.
Lunch: 3 egg omellette, 3 slices wholemeal toast
Mid-Afternoon: Apple, prebiotic yoghurt (normally protein shake but just ran out.)
Dinner: Chilli con carne, rice.
Evening snack: tin of tuna.
I havent tracked my lifts for a year, but in the last 6 months, all for 5 reps:
Squat: 50kg to 92.5kg
Deadlift: 60kg to 115 kg
Flat bench: 45kg to 77.5kg
Overhead press: 32.5kg to 45kg(pathetically weak i know)
Barbell row: 47.5kg to 65kg
Pullups, have gone from doing them with BW, to with 12.5 dumbelll between legs
I do sleep 8 hours atleast each night, normally abit more. I definately eat breakfast everyday, can’t imagine not eating it lol. My training goals are to stay lean, but pack on muscle and i need to increase my strength too. I think creatine would help because the research has shown it will help you build muscle, and help with strength. I think i covered everything, if there’s anything else you want chris just ask.
