Good luck Alex. I went through this myself when playing rugby competitively. I was 6' and 140lbs. I wish you the best of luck because I was on a protein/creatine routine as well and I only gained another 5lbs over 4 months. I eventually was too small to play my position anymore and had to give it up, so I hope you have better results than me.

Finally somebody that I can relate too, Lol. This is something I havent done before (creatine) and am hoping it will be the answer. Parents say that it'll come later on. Well its been 18 years, hasn't came yet. my dad had the gift in high school of being tall and strong. Much stronger than I am... Lol.

Well guys, I just took my first official doses of creatine and protein for the day. It feels great to have begun. Today I did front squats and my incline benchpress workouts, tomorrow is a cardio day. I'm not just looking to be strong, my cardio is important to me. Currently, I run a 6:17 mile.

Little update. Been a few weeks. I'm up 3 pounds. It's not much, but i've noticed I look a lot fitter. As opposed to my veins showing only whilst lifting, it's a permanant thing now. as for my lifts, they're getting back to where they were. It's a slow process for sure, but I'm going to try to keep my committment.

Hey Alex, don't know how I missed this thread on the first go round but I'll be sure to follow your progress now. While it may sound cliché major changes in weight, up or down, will require a lifestyle change. Just as I had to learn how not to eat things that caused weight gain you will have to learn how to eat them. Hang in there man, lot of folks here pulling for you. Rep to ya.

I missed this as well.. Congrats alex. one suggestion.. drink 2-3 times as much water as you can whenever you add any supplement. When you add to much to your body the kidneys have to filter it out. If you dont have enough water to filter it you damage them. water water water water water.. after a hard workout you might want to get some pedialyte this will add more nutrients then just plain water. simular to gatorade but without the calories.

I'm somewhat of a health nut myself. I lift 3-5 times a week. I try to get at least 20 minutes of cardio in each day as well. I mainly focus on core workouts. Squats, dead lifts, etc. Best muscle building workouts are pull ups, dips, and squats. I would mainly focus on those three if that's what your worried about. Focusing on a certain # isn't really important IMO. I'm 6ft 205lbs and pretty lean. Everyone's built different. Stay away from creatine, you don't need it. Kill all kinds of drinks except water! The key to getting big is dieting. You have to eat the right kinds of foods. It's the exact opposite from losing weight. You need to take in more calories than you're burning off. Just make sure they're the right calories. Good luck!

Another update. I'm up to 167lbs. 10 pounds since jan. 1st. I've came off the creatine completely.

I've been putting a lot of effort into this.
Bench is down to 200 (may have peaked, i'll get over it soon enough though)
Power clean 205
Squat 220! I started front squatting instead of back, it feels MUCH better on my back and knee.
mile: 6:30

I do notice a difference in the way I look, it's slight though. I know it's not a quick process.

Congrats on the progress Alex! Im a college student majoring in Exercise Science! I can relate to your body type, im 6'2 170 and have been very lean all my life. Last semester i put on 17 pounds of muscle in about 6 months. I was working out religiously 6 days out of the week. The biggest factor is consistency in lifting and dieting regularly. Make sure you are consuming a large number of calories or you are just wasting your time. Keep in mind it takes an excess of about 3500 calories to gain 1 pound of muscle... so eat eat eat. Like someone said before me, make sure its the right type of carbs(complex not simple). You should also only consume about 20 percent protein in your diet... so 3 protein drinks a day is overkill depending on the amount. Anything more then 20 percent is just gunna end up in the toilet lol. You will eventually begin to make only minimal gains but dont get discouraged. Good luck with everything and feel free to ask questions!
