Just wondering has have anyone put on noticable gains in weight with the use of creatine?

And has anyone used micro creatine by metrx, if so is it any good?

    although creatine is useful don't expect mindblowing results in weight gains

    some forms of creatine may promote slight water retention but as for lean muscle, the gains are not significant with creatine alone

    if you want gains eat more

    Yeah between 7 and 10lbs of water weight is what I gain during the first couple of weeks of a creatine cycle

    As TT said, you will piss this out as soon as you stop using the creatine, it's not muscle mass unfortunately!

    Err yes it is. Muscle is 70% water. There are also a bunch of articles supporting the idea that the increased mass increases leverage and thus not only does the ATP enable you to lift more so does the muscle size. So that the cellular water lost doesn't mean you return to your former size.

    Secondly the question has been raised many times by newbies re cycling creatine and many have replied that there is no need - me included. Thus no water loss.

    I gained a bucket load on CM when I loaded.

    MetRx sell a 'micronsied' creatine. This is what is in the trade known as 200 mesh. It's sold by nigh on everyone now. A few years back the standard was 120 mesh and this was a little granular. So while the stuff MetRx sells is ok it will be sold a loit cheaper elsewhere.

    There are many reasons for cycling creatine. For example to fit in with the cycling of other drugs or supplements. Or because of lifestyle or training changes. Or even because you just don't like it enough to stay on all the time!

    If you consider intracellular water retention to be any kind of permanent increase in muscle mass, then you are pretty much alone in this belief
