Guys and girls; pull up a chair and take a seat. I’m about to tell you about THE sports supplement that has been the subject of more studies than probably any other sports supplement in the history OF sports supplements.
Creatine is such an old supplement it can get glazed over and forgotten about. Personally, I took creatine for the first time in 6th grade. The joke was “look at John’s biceps, it's only a big ball of creatine and water”. At the time it pissed me off like I wasn’t working hard and was cheating, but looking back now it’s pretty darn funny.

Ever since I began my bodybuilding journey, I've trained mainly to pump my muscles full of blood and expand them as much as possible. This has been my number one guiding principle when trying to build more muscle tissue. Although I increase the resistance (weight) when I feel it's necessary, I don't believe more weight is the end all be all. I am not denying that heavy weight builds strength—and a stronger muscle is typically going to be a bigger muscle—but my training has mainly focused on the pump. After discussing training methods with other bodybuilders and power lifters, I noticed that their training methods were almost exactly the opposite. Power lifters train against the pump.
