    Question Will creatine help someone skinny get bigger?-beginner

    I'm 6'2, 170bls... still pretty skinny. I have been taking jack3d for pre work out for a while now and whey gold standard after workout. I eat right... lots of grilled chicken, big sandwiches, multi vitamin... etc... I havn't really noticed much change in my body, so I decided to give creatine a shot. I'm gonna start loading tomorrow (15g enough?) with GNC creatine monohydrate powder (someone in my dorm sold it cheap because he cant take it because its banned for sports or something.) for 4 or 5 days. But what im asking is, does anyone have any "success" stories from creatine? I know its not a magic supplement, I just want a tiny boost from it if possible, maybe look a little bigger.

    I've heard from some people that it makes you fat, your face gets fat blah blah.. that true?

    thanks in advance guys

    It definitely will help you get bigger, you just have to use it right. Take 5 MG a day (usually one scoop). Drink a gallon of water a day, and still eat like a horse. Once you do all that, combined with heavy lifting and decent sleep you will be amazed!

    You'll look bigger. It also helps you recover faster and have a bit more energy. Just don't do what I see people do with muscle milk... Drink it without working out and expect to be huge. Of course you on this sight so i'll guess you work out so it could unless you're one of the people who don't react to creatine

    I go to the gym 3-4 times a week. my freshman year of college I weighed 150lbs, now my sophomore year of college im around 170-172ish, but since then havnt seen improvement in strength/size. I do train hard, but recently realized my form was **** because I would do too much weight with ****ty form, so now I fixed that and do less weight with good form-im guessing that played a big roll in me not getting much stronger

    Fat rumors? Idk about any fat rumors.
    I know that Creatine will swel you up with waterweight around your muscle and it goes away when your cycle ends... But idk about any fat rumors, explain?

    I made the mistake of using Kre alkalyn which is a pill form which doesn't work for most people.

    But I know That on the loading phase you should take
    20-25g of Creatine split into four servings. The thing though is that idk when you take it.

    On non loading you should be taking 5g. And I would guess it's in the morning.

    Yet another debated topic is when to take creatine for the best results. Should you take creatine before a workout? After a workout? When waking up? Before bed?
    Asking these questions to different people will get you a variety of responses, so it's hard to know who to listen to. One thing is for sure though, taking creatine immediately after your workouts is definitely beneficial and something I would highly recommend to anyone taking creatine.

    Also, taking your creatine on an empty stomach will help absorption. So taking it immediately after waking up in the morning is effective too.

    This is how I personally do it. If I'm on a loading phase, I will take 3 lots of 7 gram servings which totals 21 grams a day. 7g immediately after waking up, 7g straight after my workout, and 7g in the evening in-between meals. If it's a non-workout day though, I would simply take my 2nd serving in the afternoon sometime instead of after my workout.

    I do this everyday for 5 days. Then I start my maintenance phase where I take 5g a day. If it's a workout day I will mix my 5g in with my post workout shake, and on non-workout days I will take my creatine when rising.

    This is just an example of how to take creatine, but you should do your own research on what would be best for you. To learn all about how and when to take creatine to its full potential check out Dr. Franco-Obregón's best-selling book on optimal creatine usage, Creatine: A Practical Guide.

    This is something I found on google when looking up when do I take creatine

    Talking

    witha proper diet, plus crazy training and some creatine...you'll put on some size in no time

    You'll see some strength, energy and size gains...nothing too crazy, but its noticeable

    also with creatine mono, expect some water gains and a slight bloated feeling, but dont worry about it, the bloated feeling will go away once you finish your cycle.

    good luck with the goals bro
