    Should a 16 year old take creatine?

    Yes, yes, I know I've been asking that for a while.

    Some people say that it's cheap and will benefit me if I don't stop.

    Others say I'm only 16 and I don't need it.

    I've mentioned in my previous thread that I'm not trying to be a strongman/heavy lifter.

    I just workout for basketball, and summer is the only time when I can have an actual working out schedule, diet, and time.

    I say no simply because it's good (imo) to lift for a few years in your teens to get to know your body better. When I was in my teens I was 100% motivated and my body responded. I say hold off for a while. If you are truly not getting anywhere and punishing your body and eating healthy - then go for the creatine for a mental boost.

    im getting the impression you think you "need" creatine in order to lift or see gains and since you wont be consistent it would be a waste, you really dont wanna buy it and you wanna hear someone telling you you shouldnt even touch the stuff or summin'...

    its my only explanation why youre making this as if you were buying plutonium from iraqis...

    The feeling is completely neutral to be honest. I really don't know if I need it or not.

    I just want to know what people think and go with that.

    i voted yes, but feel the need to qualify it. there is no need to take it at all, but if you are going to venture into a gnc, creatine monohydrate and whey protein should be all you are walking out with. (you get my analogy, it applies to web stores as well).

    ^Same as this.

    I answered the poll too quickly. I said "yes", but you don't "need" it. I don't really feel like creatine makes a huge difference (at least for me), but I think it's fine for a 16 year old to take plain creatine mono.

    Thanks everyone.
    Like I said it's not about money as much it's about worrying that I'll break out(acne) and that I'll be only taking it for summer.
