what is your body composition like? are you 130 and toned? or do you have the college beer gut like i did?

the reason i ask is, if your bulking, I wouldnt worry too much about how much sugar you are taking in. Especially around the time when your taking the creatine. it will only help the cellular uptake, and you will be able to peal any fat off later if your naturally more lean.

Man I make a point to go into the gym, find the biggest guy and be his friend. Get him to lift with me, and push me. The only way you get bigger and better is to train with those that are better then you. dont be shy, most people are willing to help as long as your not dicking around and getting in the way. *as a pointer, talk to them before or after a workout, never in the middle*

by the way congrats on the choice to live the lifestyle, and on the gains you've made so far.

Think Big, Eat big, Lift big ...GET BIG!!!

I used to think that way too until I came to the realization that 40 grams of dextrose immediately after my workout will not put a microfraction of fat on me. On paper I don't like the idea of drinking what is essentially sugar, but the only way it could possibly put fat on you is if you drink it just before you go to sleep, 7 days a week for an extended period of time. Pre and postworkout is completely fine.

[QUOTE=mojoclemson]My workout plan is M-F.

M:bis, back, abs
T: chest, tris, shoulders
W: legs
Th: bis, back, abs
F: chest, tris, soulders

I have been taking one serving of protein preworkout with a little creatine, less than 1/2 a serving. pwo I take around 2 servings of protein with a little more creatine. Around an hour later I try and eat a chicken breast. Before bed I drink milk for the cassein. [QUOTE]
I recommend you spread out your workouts a bit more, esp. since you are just starting out. This will help you concentrate on the muscles more and maximize recovery. It's a common misconception that you have to work your muscles more than once a week. I used to hit my muscles twice in a week, and I saw my strength decrease. Also, for me, doing two or three muscles in a day killed my intensity and motivation. I now do the once a week deal and am seeing alot of gains. Other than that, I can see you took everyone's advice. Other than what you predicted (overtraining), my advice is that you don't have to cycle off of creatine after a month. I've been on creatine now for 3 months and making great progress. You have some good things going for you, good luck and I'm sure we'll hear about even more growth. ;)

Thanks to everyone who's replying. "Do I have a beer gut?" No, it's no gut, it used to be nothing at all, just skin, but now it's filling in a little, still no gut though. I just feel a lot thicker. My back is not straight however, it has one disc off near my stomach and makes it stick out more than usual a little, the reason I never have much of a gut is I walk around sucking it in about 24/7 so I think my abs are getting a constant workout.

I was thinkin about the workout schedule and thought up this. Tell me what you think.....

Week 1:

M: Back, Tris, abs
T: Chest, Bis, Shoulders
W: Legs, abs
Th: Rest
F: Back, Tris, abs

Week 2:

M: Chest, Bis, abs
T: Back, tris,
W: Legs, abs
Th: Rest
F: Chest, Bis, abs

Next week same as week 1 and so on...
This way every other week you would be doing each upperbody region 2 times, but only once every other week as well.

Really appreciate all your help, otherwise I probably would not be doing anything anymore, prolly would have quit without going to the gym and having people motivate me. Hopefull if I do this the next month I can get in the routine soley by myself and go over the summer.

Three days off per week is definately good to go. Hope to hear from you in a month. Make sure to weigh yourself now and keep a personal record of your lifts. The following week you should be breaking past what you wrote down. Even if it's a 5 pound increase per week, that would mean 20 pounds in a month. :eek:

I usually bodyguard celebrities, government figures such as our governator, and people worth a boat load of money. One person who's worth like 4 billion dollars! I can't say anything about them so don't ask...

If I were to work for someone that reach, I would be getting some of my friends from the hood to steal all the stuff at his house
