The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Creatine dose ?

    What's everyone's thoughts on creatine grams per day. I have done 5 for years and just recently uped that to 10 grams last meet cycle. Some suggest going into the 20-25g dose per day. Any one doing that? I want every advantage I can get on meet day and don't want to not use something to the best of its abilities.

    I do 10 a workout. From what I understand the body hits a threshold and anything over that is a waste. Someone can google it if they want. I'm going to take a nap.


    Supplements I currently take: Nitrean , BCAA , Creatine 500 , Multi-Plus , Fish Oil

    5g per day is the staple dose, although I have seen a few studies showing 3g per day is comparably effective.
