Funny you mention this. I'm assessing what supplement I might take for that additional edge and I completely agree with you. Back when EAS 1st came out, my first year on PHOSPHAGEN HP I had good gains. I'm 42 now and have limited success with using creatine. I'm not very diligent with my diet but it's decent and I cannot say that I'm getting extra creatine from my diet which would negate the supplement. I'd like to hear some theories. Could it be the older you get the less it helps due to some type of metabolic change or maybe you need to really increase the amount you take to a much higher level.
