Re: creatine: dehydration and heat illness
[ QUOTE ]
not to be a sour grape, but when i first tried creatine (following the protocol correctly) i did experience muscle cramps, mostly in my hamstrings. i went from practically NEVER cramping up to getting one muscle cramp every week or so. this may have been due to a lack of water. just giving my personal experience...

Always interesting to hear personal experiences. Do you think you may not have been properly hydrated when this was happening? Can you remember if you increased your water intake when you began loading with creatine?
