I recently started taking MusclePharm's Assault. I love it. It's a big help for my workouts. I go longer and harder. The problem is I'm trying to get leaner and I've gained 11 pounds in the two weeks I've been using Assault. This happens to me when I use creatine, one of the ingredients in Assault. Is there anything you use for pre-workout that produces results without creatine? Thanks.

The article link below may help you to understand creatine and its effects a bit better.It is highly unlikely an 11lb weight gain in two weeks is attributable to creatine dosage.
Recommended dose is 3 to 5 grams a day,and once your body reaches saturation level,any excess will be excreted.

Creatine causes me to bloat badly as well, but a week or so off of it and it all goes away. I am using gaspari's size on right now and can tell a big difference in my waist. Once it runs out I will stay off of it for a while.Eric
