I am a college athlete and have recently began taking Biotest’s creatine product. First, I’d like to say that I have taken creatine products before and this product blows the others out of the water. My strength has skyrocketed in just a few weeks. I am using an altered westside system with Maximum and dynamic effort bench and squat days on alternating weeks. I also incorporate chains and bands for accomodating resistance.
A general outline of my program would be:
Monday-Heavy Cleans/Light Hang Snatches
Tuesday-Dynamic Box Squat/ME Bench
Thursday-Light Cleans/ Heavy Snatches
Friday-Squat/ Dynamic chain bench
Monday- Same but Higher %
This obviously is accompanied by supplemental exercises. I also run every day, making Monday’s and Thursdays speed days, where I am dragging/pushing sleds or doing overspeed work. Tuesday and Friday are speed endurance/conditionign days.
Now to my question, with near 3 hours of exercise a day, after loading, would my creatine needs be higher than the average lifter taking creatine being that I may be wiping out more of my supplies daily? If it matters, I weigh around 195-200lbs. I generally take 5g/day after my lift/run.
