    wassup everyone,

    Im really trying to get a bigger physique and was considering taking creatine. Ive tried everything else and it just dosnt seem to work for me. im currently 5'9 with 12% body fat and with a weight of 175. im not uncomfortable with my body but its not the ideal one I want. My question to you guys is, whats your recommendation on a creatine that will help me get bigger and leaner in a few months ?

    Thanks

    I think most men who have worked out for a long time will agree: you can get big, or you can get lean. But you can't do both at the same time.

    I don't think creatine is your answer. Creatine surely won't make you leaner. It will make you retain water, weigh more, and not really have much of a difference in the gym in terms of weight lifted, which is what makes you big. Yes the studies show that it helps in sprinting events and short bursting activities, such as sprinting and power lifting--not bodybuilding, which is slow movements and large volumes.

    Try lifting more weight in the gym. If you don't know how to do that, hire a personal trainer. And since you're already 5'9" 180, you're already on the upper end of weight-for-height even if you were muscular. Maybe you have that psychological issue of looking in the mirror and seeing a skinny guy when you're not. I think they call it body dysmorphia.

    Edit: after seeing your adult photos, yes you have body dysmorphia. LOL You're NOT skinny. Clearly you don't think you're muscular enough... Try not comparing yourself to people who inject testosterone in their ass every few days.

    It took me 6 1/2 years, and I'm finally about to cross the 200 mark. I was about 130 when I started working out. It's all about eating properly.

    Haters gonna hate.

    Actually, I'm in my 38'th year of lifting.

    I had the fifth highest strength in my high school. I weighed 175 at 5"5" in high school at was NOT fat. I weigh just a few pounds more than in high school. 210 today.

    In my 20's, I was studied by a friend who has a Ph.D. in exercise science. Most folks 17 years old don't carry 175 at 5'5". My ability to put on muscle is very good, but, I've seen better. Those guys are the pros.

    While your jealousy is notable, you also need to consider good genes, good diet, discipline, and nearly 4 DECADES of lifting. I treat it all as a science, and execute a plan (I might add, successfully.).

    Likely, even with juice, you don't have the focus, knowledge, genetics, nor discipline to be big of body in an exceptional way.

    Whether it's work, sport, recreation...life has risks. Clearly some things...like being fat, and not exercising, or smoking...are very hazardous.

    I don't know if you watch television, but, perhaps you've seen HRT commercials?

    Anyway, I take it as a compliment that you lash out.

    If you think it's all in a bottle, you are truly ignorant.

    Perhaps if I had started earlier, with today's nutrition, and all, I would have been even bigger, but, I like how I am...very much...and...I am in the upper levels of fitness, able to train at 110% of max heart rate routinely.

    I've been up as high as 232, but, that's a full time job, and...like most guys who are real good at bodybuilding (GAO did a study), I make more money, and have a better position than an average person. It's typical for us. Lifting is just one part of my life.

    ^ dafuq?, my post was not directed towards you. It was a general tongue-in-cheek comment about spending money on steroids instead of food to get bigger. But I guess at any given opportunity on this topic you'll use it towards boasting so highly of yourself. And if you think I'm hating on an irrelevant, 5'5, marshmallow framed man with an arrogant attitude to boot, you thought wrong.

    You're digging in deeper, and revealing part of a character that seems needy to lash out / very immature. Without the calories, AAS, won't work very well. No doubt, AAS, work; you can see the results on any newsstand, or Facebook, but, without a proper plan, well executed, you still won't get big. Food first; everythingicon_neutral.gif else second. You really do illustrate that you can't engage intelligent discourse, and, honestly, I'm not going to lower myself to your level.

    Some folks are ectomorphs, and just don't get big. Some folks, like me, and many others, are mesomorphs, and look at food, lift some weights, and get big, with, or without, AAS. Endomorphs often battle weight issues, and are just big...period.

    Genetics, and calories, are really the two biggest components in being "big."

    Creatine will add a smidge of fullness / load, but, it's not what makes some skinny guy big. That's calories, time, patience, and discipline, and whatever other science the athlete engages in.

    Blah blah blah, same story, different post. We get it, you're big. icon_rolleyes.gif My level?

    For the record, you're the one who lashed out on me when you thought my comment was directed towards you. Touchy subject?

    You can't get big unless you pound food into your face constantly and have a strict gym routine. You must go at least 3 times a week if not more. any less than that and gains will be negligible at best.

    Or you can cheat like way more people than you think in the US are on anabolic steroids and lift bitch weights and eat shit and get big.

    You should just focus on getting big! don't worry about getting fat because you'll be able to cut really fast if you find it so hard to put on the weight it'll be easy loose it, I heard the best way is to workout only 3 times a week, 45 mins per workout no more or you'll burn muscle, and just eat loads and loads and do barely any cardio

    You're pretty much asking him to not go to Miami Beach...


    I take creatine but I didn't start taking it until nearly 4 years into my workout. wish I'd of found it sooner...but I do the EAS stuff with beta-alanine also. It has certainly made me overall bigger by about 10 pounds. I like it. the problem with creatine is the companies that make them tend to put too much other shit in them. They'd destroy my appetite and leave me feeling queezy. EAS is the only one I can really tolerate and the GNC brand.

    If you want to get "big" you have to eat, eat, eat, eat, and eat until it hurts and then eat some more.
