Just to add on to what Stud said, most of the time it's better to wait about a year or two before getting on creatine. It's your personal decision, but waiting a while will allow you to get more out of the creatine in the long run.

No problem.

That is curious though, you shouldn't be staling out at all since you're relatively new. If you want, I'll re-work your training regimen and get you moving up again.

Well currently I'm working out 4 times a week,
Day 1 - Legs
Day 2 - Back n bis
Day 3 - Chest n Tris
Day 4 - Shoulders
I put in core once to twice a week haven't recently cos I'm a lazy shit , and do pull ups everyday as well because thats something I want to improve on. I'm doing 3 sets, 8-10 reps on most exercises and always focus on technique I'm not a half squatting bitch .
The only other thing I can think of is that apart from a pretty casual diet I take 23g of protein after each workout optimum nutrition . I would really welcome feedback as you most likely have more knowledge on this than I do.

For perspectives sake, I weigh 95kg, I bench 125kg, I squat 175kg, and deadlift 206kg. I don't take creatine, and I don't think it's necessary for anyone, especially not beginners.

Here's why - Firstly you have to understand the function of creatine. Long story short, it promotes the production of ATP, which is what your muscles use to contract. When you workout, not only are you tearing down the muscle, but you're also depleting your ATP. With that understood, creatine doesn't directly help you build muscle, it just allows you to do a few more reps, and those few more reps have the potential but don't necessarily to build slightly more muscle. Here's why I think beginners shouldn't take it - It gives you a sort of 'false' advantage, since you're relying on an outside source to get a couple more reps. Whenever someone cycles off of creatine, they always lose strength. Beginners should be dead focused on increasing their pure strength base before even considering adding in supplementation - not only to build a solid foundation, but also to leave yourself room to go up (if you start taking creatine now, what are you going to take a year from now when you start stalling out?)

Ultimately it's like I said, I don't think it's necessary for anyone, but I definitely don't think it's very useful for beginners at all.

Thanks man, must've taken a while to write all that out so I appreciate it. All I have had to go on are internet articles which basically declare creatine to be the answer to all my problems as well as friends who have overtaken me while taking it.

I'm going through a plateau (my bench, shoulders, tris n bis have shown minimal improvement), since before Christmas, and thought creatine would be the answer. I'll try staying off it and try to push through this plateau.

Thanks for your input. Once again really appreciated.

You don't need creatine. It would be a waste of money for you right now.

Just look up "creatine monohydrate" and find something you like. Creatine isn't expensive and it should last you a while.

I can see both just as well, would this make me a third kind, or does it mean that I am schizophrenic and both of my personalities can see each gif?

You clearly didn't read my comment. There are only two kinds of people. If you arent one of the two, you're neither.

So I would question my existence if I were you.
