In a little over two weeks I'm going to the USMC's OCS. Right now I'm taking the a multi, omega 3, creatine and N02.
Non of these supplements are looked down upon by the MC, but I will not have access to them while at OCS.
One of the first things we do at OCS is a physical fitness test (which I could max out on before I started taking any supplements).
I'm asking two related questions:
1) Will my body need to "recover", or experience any kind of withdrawal from no longer taking these supplements, and if so, how long will it take? (I took them for awhile some time ago, but wasn't training nearly as hard as I am now, so I hardly noticed). In other words, should I stop taking them now, and give my body a few weeks to get used to it, or should I take them until the last min to get the most out of them?
2) How long does it take to loose the probably 7-8 pounds (I'm guessing) of water weight I'm carrying from the creatine and hemodilator.
Any thoughts and advice would be appreciated.
