Creatine never really worked for me. I know others swear by it, and I have had friends whom it really seemed to help. I suppose it’s possible I just don’t respond. I’m going to try it again soon, maybe I simply didn’t stay on long enough. I’m 21 now, last time I was 19 I think.[/quote]
I really have no idea if non-responders do exist, but I just listened to the on-line phone chat b/w JB and Charles Staley. The topic of creatine came up and they talked about “non-responders.” JB does NOT, (from his numerous lab studies on creatine) believe in the non-responder theory, (although, he did say there may be non-responders - it’s still unclear). He believes that some people don’t respond to creatine b/c the cells are already loaded - not b/c the cells are immune to creatine.
Infinity, this could be a reason creatine didn’t seem to work for you. Could be other reasons as well. Maybe when you took it at 19, your training program and nutition program was sub-par. Hope you have everything together and your body does RESPOND this time around.
