    Creatine would help your gains. Start with simple creatine mono. Cheap and effective for the majority of people.
     
    Its not a miracle suppliment. None of them are, but it will help

    Awesome!!

    Dyslexia must be catching because I see so-called text speak used all the day but chav types who have no actual medical conditions but are just lazy. I know it's a generalisation but how come those same text speaking chavs didn't bother staying on at school, paying attention, passing exams and the like. Were they all lacking a diagnosis?? Besides now it seems I should feel sorry for you being Dyslexic. We've all got problems. If the worse one you had yesterday was me asking for NO and KNOW to be spelt correctly (esp in light of the rest and this also being spot on) then lifes pretty good.

    You'll note that I, while commenting on the loss of several letters from a word, still pointed you in the direction of the articles section on this site. I've found that looking up info rather than just asking often gives it a greater 'value'. In other words that which you looked for or worked for has greater meaning.

    That there are many 1000's of articles on creatine must mean you were not really trying. In the meantime and so I don't look a complete and utter cock - check www.brinkzone.com for loads of said articles.

    mobster means well regardless and you cant blame him when he didnt know you had that! As if he did im sure he wouldnt have commented!
     
    and from reading his posts you realise he has forgotten more about training/supps than most of us knew in the first place! A knowledgable guy who always helps out beginners just dont touch his plates down the gym lol

    Has any1 taken Myprotein Monohydrate Creatine, I think its one of them most digusting flavors i ever tasted, how about you guys?

    As for creatine check this article, some good advice about how to take when and etc

    http://www.muscletalk.co.uk/article-creatine.aspx

    I would recommend SizeOn by Gaspari

    http://www.bodybuildingwarehouse.co.uk/gaspari-sizeon---1290g-150-p.asp

    Its a bit more expensive than all the other creatine products, but it seems to get great reviews

    Why you getting so defensive about it? Whats chavs and text speak got to do with it? I dont use text speak maybe a lol or atm every now and then.
    You dont NO (:p) me so you can't really say.
     
    But im not one to hold grudges and all that.  Just maybe take the piss if people are using u instead of you, r instead of are and not people who are using word out of context.
     
    Anyways the reason I ask on here and not read mountains of articles because I read slow and thought it would be nice to talk to someone about it.
     
    Thats all I have to say on that anyway. Time to read that article I guess.

    i recommend starting with mono if you havent tried any creatine before james, as it cheap and very effective for most.

    Any mono I've ever used has been unflavoured. It doesn't taste of anything, just throw it into your post-wo whey.

    mono is mono! not sure about what flavour he is on about?
     
    I wouldnt add to a shake personally as i dont like the gritty texture and find it ruins my shake which i normally enjoy.
     
    If taking mono i add it to a half cup of water and neck it! then have my shake
