The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís 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 and water weight

    im going on my first cut starting tomorrow and i take creatine. just wondering since taking creatine increases water weight, how can you accurately check your weight to take make sure you are losing 1 lb a week? just wondering because my weight can fluctuate 2-4 lbs depending on the amount of creatine i take. i also dont have a way to monitor body fat % btw.
    is the solution just be very consistent with the amount of creatine i take daily and be sure not to skip taking creatine, or should i not even worry about it?

    I dont think you can look in the mirror and say ooh i've gained 3lbs of water weight from creatine. I just did a search and some people seem to say you gain 5lbs of water weight when you start to take creatine. I dont know if this is true but thats what I found. I just started taking creatine 2 weeks ago and was wondering how much of the weight I have gained is water too.
