Why You Need Creatine
I've been using creatine on and off for about 20 years now. My first experience with it was amazing. It, along with a two- or three-times a day protein shake, couple with brutal weight workouts, allowed me to pack on 60 pounds of muscle in one year.
At the time, without steroids, the max muscle most guys could build was about 8-12 pounds.
So I considered that a monumental feat.
And I attribute it all to creatine.
Sure, I had to eat a LOT of calories to get myself in a positive caloric balance. Plus, I had to train really heavy.
But a lot of that weight was strictly because creatine allowed me to work harder, push and pull more, and recover a lot faster.
You could say, at least for me, creatine was a poor man's steroid.
And for a lot of guys, it is.
I didn't have the time, money, or inclination to inject myself with God-knows-what that I got from a gym rat. And I couldn't find a doctor at the time who'd prescribe them to me. And I sure as hell wasn't going to drive or fly down to Mexico or Canada to smuggle it back in.
I started doing research on it. And so did a lot of people in the supplement and scientific world.
In fact, creatine is the most-researched supplement – EVER.
There's a reason – it works.
But people are skeptical. Of course.
I mean, most supplements don't live up to the hype. And some can really harm you – even kill you.
Creatine isn't like that at all.
It's a natural molecule found in animal flesh like beef. We store in our bodies.
I won't get into all the technical details, but suffice it to say many athletes, strength athletes specifically, use it and swear by it.
