    Cables vs resistance bands and creatine

    Hi, I just started trying to get back in shape. I was lifting using cables for 2 months until I switched to resistance bans last week. I was a little bit more from using these. This week, I started using creatine and the bands with more of the same exercises to what I was doing with cables.
    I noticed I feel a lot more soreness in the parts of my body I am working on (arms, gut and back).

    Is the reason for this additional soreness due to the creatine or the use of resistance cable with more results from doing more sets? I stepped my my reps from between 3 sets of 10/15 to 20.

    Your opinions are greatly appreciated.

    Thx

    How about using some weights?

    You got sore because you did something different with your exercise.

    Resistance is resistance, but the movement is different when using cables and bands, and this is why you're sore

    Maybe I used the wrong word. My muscles feel more tired and wobbly. Isnt this a good thing? I was just wondering if creatine helps with this as I have never taken it before.

    Creatine prevents lactic acid build up which increases muscle endurance. The soreness your feeling is due to you introducing new muscle movements

    How much Creatine are you taking daily?

    Take 5g (probably 3g would be enough) a day.
