    With respect to the creatine article, I’ve never taken the stuff, but have been doing some research on it lately and now I’m considering it. Anybody have any insight or advice, pros/cons, ect?

      Same here. I’ve never taken it, but I’m considering it. What kind of research have you found?

      On a side note, do you want to ride with Rich and myself down to the Garage Games? If you don’t have lodging yet we can split a room too.

      All of that applies to you too, KLowe.

      Creatine monohydrate powder. Tsp a day does a body good. The whole loading 5-7 gm daily… blah, blah, blah is a bunch of crap. Just buy some cheap monohydrate and dump it in your post work out drink. I’m convinced it aids recovery, not so sure it make much difference in performance. Here’s a link to the ACSM Roundtable statement:

      Tye,

      I have been taking creatine for the past month or so and have taken it in the past. I have to agree with Patrick in the sense that it does help speed up recovery.

      However, I have also noticed that I have a much higher tendancy to cramp up when I take it. So I’d be careful trying it out right before you have Garage Games and our Affiliate throwdown coming up. If you do take it just make sure and drink A LOT of water and it shouldn’t bother you.

        Thanks for the heads up Jake. Guess I’ll wait until about the middle of Feb. before I start. I used to have a horrible tendency to cramp up on my own, but haven’t really had an issue in the last couple of months for some reason. Hopefully creatine won’t bring it back.

    14:57, heavily scaled. MU transitions, V-ups, 60# cleans, and a 10#WB (15 reps). I’m so ready to get some consistency back in the gym, but new motherhood is not allowing for that right now. 🙂
