    pretty sure creatine is one of the safest and most well researched supplements lol. it will increase your pump, water weight and add strength to your lifts. pre workout seems a gimmick tho have a coffee or tea

    Creatine will give you a couple lbs of gains and than hold the line their even if you take more it won't matter so I wouldn't bother with it. And it will go away fast when you stop...Protein powder will help if your working out almost every day. For a pre workout I would go to your local pharmacy and buy a bottle of caffeine pills. Everything else is a scam......why does fit always ask basic questions are you all just starting to lift?

    Preworkout is just caffeine drink with shit taste, protein shakes are just proteins with shit taste (case in point, Chinese farmers feed whey to pigs). You can get all that from traditional food and drinks, for a bit extra money.

    Ignore the retards ITT on creatine.

    Safe, highly researched, promotes strength and muscle growth by enhancing ATP recovery. You will have more energy to workout and workout harder. You will gain a few pounds from water, but that's water in the muscle, making you look fuller, not bloated.

    You do NOT get enough creatine from red meat, full saturation occurs at a level that can only be hit via supplementation.

    Pre workout is a meme unless it contains amphetamines like DHAA, the active ingredient is caffeine, just take 400-600mg of caffeine by pill (very cheap) and wash it down with orange juice or some other easy sugars.

    Protein powder is useful if you struggle to get enough protein via meat. On most days, steak / chicken / yogurt is enough for me, but when you do fall a bit short it's an easy way to catch up.

    creatine is worth it. protein powder is if you can't get enough for some reason or are on a cut. pre work out: just drink some coffee. almost everything else is questionable if worth paying for or a scam even.

    aside from creatine and maybe protein if you want to cut, you don't really need anything else

    >Which creatine should I buy?
    Creatine comes in powder or crystalline form and has no taste only some grainy texture
    So you buy Creatine Monohydrate flavorless – NOTHING ELSE

    >How/When to take?
    Around 5 grams per day
    Intake time doesn’t matter
    Maybe take it with food if you have a weak stomach
    The easiest way:
    scoop -> mouth -> water or put it in a shake/cereals/yogurt
    cycling not needed, blast and cruise 5g a day
    It doesn’t matter if you don’t take it a few days if you can’t take it
    Creatine saturates in your body over time
    This means the intake doesn’t matter since there is no immediate effect
    Therefore, if you stop taking creatine, it takes a few weeks until all the excessive creatine is used up and you are back to your normal

    >What does creatine effectively do?
    It stores water IN your muscles and makes you look slightly bigger without looking bloated
    Due to additional water retention you gain some water weight at first
    It increases your ATP/CP pool and therefore elevates your maximum output performance e.g.:
    a few more reps or slightly higher max lift

    >How does it work?
    Your body as 3 energy resources: body fat, glycogen and ATP
    Body Fat: delivers a low amount of energy although for a very long time
    Glycogen: stored in your muscles and liver and can deliver a medium energy output for 1-2 hours
    ATP: delivers a massive amount of energy but only for a very short duration of ~5-10 seconds
    This energy source is mainly used for heavy sets of 1-5 reps since you need a lot of energy for your max lifts
    Creatine increases the available amount of creatine phosphate in your body which will be converted to ATP
    Since more ATP means higher/more energy output you can get a few more reps or lift a little higher weights.
