Creatine & Squats (mass gaining Q and A)

I literally get dozens of e mails, Facebook messages and
YouTube questions sent to me every single day.

Honestly, I wish I could field all of these questions and
support everyone who seeks out my advice… but it’s
impossible.

But that does NOT mean you should stop sending me
questions.

Lots of times I read these questions and archive them in
order to answer them at a later time, or though a video.

I’ve also decided to add a new Q and A”feature” to my
Facebook fanpage and this newsletter.

This is where I’ll randomly grab questions that you send
me and then answer them in these public platforms.

That way I can help you out personally, and support others
who have the same question. — cool?

Here is the first question from a guy who wants to gain
mass with creatine and squats.

Adam,

Good questions…

First, I LOVE creatine.

In fact, right now I would say that it is the ONLY muscle
building supplement worth using.

Even whey protein has dropped off my list. I haven’t used
whey from almost a year and do not miss it at all.

(I’ll tell you more about why I quit whey and why I think
it sucks in another newsletter).

But creatine has never let me down and I have always
gotten good, clean strength building results from using it.

Now, to be honest I am not much of a supplement connoisseur
so whatever advice I give you is only based on my experience.

I have never used any form of creatine that did not work.

So the one your brother left is probably just fine.

A few years ago, when I was competing in strongman, I was
sponsored by a company that makes Hypergain Creatine.

Back then I used it because it was free :)

Now I continue to use it because it still works. But that’s all.
I am not attached to any of the marketing claims, etc.

I just use it because I get results. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

You can do some research of your own to find a creatine that
you like, use the one your brother left, or you can try the one
I use
. It’s up to you.

About how many squats and dead lifts to gain mass….

My short answer is, A LOT.

Gaining 25 lbs is no small feat my friend…

…and if you are already asking yourself, “how much of this must I do?
then you’re starting off with the wrong attitude.

Like I mentioned in yesterday’s message, you’re going to have
to build some patience and consistency in your approach,
BEFORE you reap long-term, permanent success.

How many reps and sets is a simple question with a simple
answer (that I’ve answered in many videos)

How much of this must I do?……Is a shortsighted and naive question.

It will take as much as it takes…

…if you’re willing to keep working and never give up.

Grow Stronger,
