Short-Term Creatine Use
Thinking about starting to use creatine but not sure if I want to be using it long term: Does it give effect only so long as it is being used?
From what I've read it seems that while improving training (longer, harder), physical increases are more just the muscles swelling with water rather than actual muscular increase (- therefore if I stopped using creatine, muscular size would decrease to non-creatine levels?). Obviously muscle strength will increase through the period of usage owing to increased training, but in regards to bulking up, should I expect muscles to return to more 'normal' size?
Is this correct or am I misinterpreting?
Also any common "withdrawal symptoms" from creatine?
