    if you stop using creatine, will you lose mass???

    gd' Im not using creatine, but ive heard good thing about it. Like you will increase strenght, mass, chest and become more powerfull etc.

    what will happen if you take creatine for a month and you gain some mass, power etc. and you stop using it after like 4 months.

    will you lose the gains uve made, considering the fact that you still workout regular and are on a clean bulk diet?

    with creatine you add a lot of mass that is water, when you get off the creatine you lose the water retention and will lose a few lbs.

    you will lose the water weight that you put on........

    the muscle and strength you put on should stay under most conditions.

    So you put on 10lbs you may lose 3lbs in water weight the rest was solid mass.

    So a 7lbs increase.

    There's a lot of theories. On that back of my "Higher Power Creatine 1000" bottle it recommends 16 days on then 3 days off. A lot of people take it indefinately (including yours truly, unless I forget on an off day).

    you mean cycling creatine.

    Like TYs said a lot of theories.

    I generally dont think you need to cycle of it but lack of long term studies doesnt really help. The body normally gets creatine from other natural sources anyay just not enough, so I dont see whats the problem with taking creatine constantly.

    Just my opinion.

    What if you take creatine for 2 months and then stop for 2 months? Is there a way to stop the water retention like by drinking more water or eating more sodium in your diet?

    How many inches of mass would you lose? maybe an inch off arms, a couple off of the chest, etc..?

    No you're not going to lose an inch of your arms if an inch is 10% of your arm. Same with your chest.

    If you cycle creatine you won't have any problems with this

    You may lose some weight but that's water weight anyways. You shouldn't lose too much strength though.

    So basically if I gain a couple pounds of muscle it will remain there because that's MY muscle. However when I lose water I will just lose only that.. water.. right?

    gents,

    the water retention caused by Creatine supplementation is intracellular... thus, your muscles appears slightly fuller or "full". there are other ways to increase intracellular fluids (i.e. carbs etc).

    I would not worry about cycling on/off creatine if you work hard. I am presently taking CrM in the AM on WO days only. This should prove sufficient to keep Creatine Phosphate stores saturated at all times.
