Hey guys, so I'm thinking of adding Creatine to my nutrition plan for my muscle building program. I've heard a lot of different opinions on the dosage though so I am a bit confused. Obviously that is my first question, how much should I be taking? I do strength training 4 days a week. Just a basic summary of my training is:
Monday: Legs, Chest, Biceps, Triceps.
Tuesday: Back, Shoulders, Core.
Thursday: Legs, Chest, Biceps, Triceps.
Friday: Back, Shoulders, Core.
I'm roughly 185 pounds with around 20% bodyfat. Basically my goal is to get a more lean, defined body in time for summer. Will creatine supplementation benefit me in any way?
Summary of the questions:
Is it worth me taking creatine supplements?
If so then how much creatine should I be taking and how often/for how long?
What is the best form to take it in?
Where is the best place to buy it from? (mainly asking who, in your experience, is the most reliable as money isn't really too much of a problem.)
Have you used creatine? If so did you notice a difference, significant or not, when you were taking it?
Anything you guys can offer will be appreciated. Just as a P.S. I know my program probably isn't the best but it's worked better for me so far than anything else I've tried so unless you recommend an already fully constructed program that's proven to be the best in the world, please keep any comments on it to yourself ;).
Thanks in advance! Hope to hear back soon.
