I'm about to order another tub of Maximus and figured it's probably time to add another supplement. It's the only supplement I've been taking recently (unless you count Fish Oil and a daily vitamin :p ).

I'm thinking Results even though I wasn't originally planning to take anything with creatine. Any other suggestions?

Why do you feel like you NEED another supplement? Are you currently making gains in the gym?

Just to be more efficient, get the most out of the time I spend in the gym :)

My strength gains are pretty much on par with what most routines recommend for weekly increases, but I still feel like I should be doing better because I was way ahead of where I am now ~4 years ago (before I stopped working out completely). I've always read it should be easier to progress if you've been there before but never looked into whether that's fact or myth...

I really like results. Takes about a week to kick in but once it does you will see a definate increase in weights.

RESULTS!

period.. i'll just start using results as an automatic answer for me because it pretty much is just that. I LOVE maximus but results is by far the best supplement i've ever had the pleasure of using.

when taken properly..the product just plain works

Just have a couple Q's about the 5g creatine it has per serving:

1.) Is it bad that the recommended dose for a person of my weight (180 lbs.) is only half of what is in a serving of Results? Should I take less than one serving daily?
2.) Do we need to treat this like normal creatine and incorporate wash-out periods?

I figured I just didn't know enough about creatine to start taking it yet, but those are the main things I don't understand... I don't even know if "wash-out" periods apply when you're not using a loading phase.

Where did you get this supposed recommended dose for a 180 lbs person?

Where did you get this supposed recommended dose for a 180 lbs person?From that creatine website that's in a sticky in the other forum. Everyone says to read it before asking any questions about creatine lol is it way off?:confused:

Posting from my phone so I hope I pasted that right, but there should be a table if you scroll down a bit.

Disregard that table. 5g is a proper dose for someone of your weight. Creatine is very safe and effective. If you are healthy, you should have no concerns about its use. If you ate 3 big steaks a day you would get 5g of creatine from the food alone. I mention that for perspective.
