So its GPP now and im taking creatine, cycling for 4 weeks on and 3-4 weeks off. Definitely gotten a lot stronger and added I think 3-4 pounds of water along with it.
Now into the track season im planning on using creatine throughout as someone has told me it gave them good results and stronger = faster for them using creatine. Now my question is with my first meet bring 1st week of december, if i was near end of my cycle as the meet comes, Ill be a lot stronger, however will the extra water weight slow me down? Or will the extra strength make up for it and the overall effect of creatine will make me faster ?
Also would taking creatine + some simple carbs about 90 minutes before a race help out?
One reason is that creatine makes me stiff as a robot. Not sure if it’s the water retention’s fault, or some other effect of creatine, but I have to stop creatine at least 3-4 days before a competition, or I will not run relaxed.
