Default Creatine

I'm considering ordering creatine to improve my workouts and would like to hear from any of the ladies out there who have used it and what they think about it.

Giselle:

Have you read the article on creatine here at ABC? If not, do so, to get the FACTS on the benefits of using creatine. It is recommended reading before posting questions about the supplement.

Here is the link:

Creatine Sticky

I take creatine because:

1) It increases the pump
2) It increases the reparation process
3) Creatine provides the muscle with more energy
4) Does not have side effects and it is NOT a steroid.

Now, in regards to female athletes, here's a specific area where there could be concern"

[ QUOTE ]
Q: I am a woman and I was thinking about taking creatine, but I don't want to become huge and veiny like a man.

A: If that is the case, then I would suggest that you do not eat like the " huge and veiny " men that you do not want to look like. Creatine will assist you in your workout, but only calories will make you grow. Yes, creatine is an excellent supplement for mass, but only if you are eating for mass. However creatine does make you hold water and could make you a bit bloated. If you are sensitive to those effects then don't use it.
