I'm new to this site, so don't know if this has been asked before. Does anybody over 50 years old have any experience with using creatine? I regularly workout, but without any supplements. I would, however, like to bulk up more and just wonder if taking creatine will have any positive effects.

Thanks!

You might consider just upping your daily calories by 200-400 and see where that gets you.

Thanks for the feedback. Although I do watch my diet, I did up my calories thinking that would increase - or at least - stabilize mass. I have stayed at 150 lbs for the past 10 years, but I am aware age will take its toll. That's why I'm thinking about supplements. I'm not looking for a quick buildup approach, but would like some feedback on what methods others have had success with. Whether with supps or not.

If I were you I would also look at routine, diet(amount of protein) and then supps. Creatine is cheap, your not going to be out much, but for myself, I get very little gains from it.I would have to agree with Milo, up cals. Up them more than before and make sure you are training with enough intensity and getting enough recovery. You may also be overtraining which will make results come to a halt.

Understand where your're coming from guy. Four years agoj I was down to 148 lbs and now I'm creeping back up at 206. I got a few years on you and I have used creatine. I am a non-responder however and didn't have any real success until I switched to first V12 and now V2. That allows you to work harder, stronger and recover faster. Afterwards you will lose a lot of the lbs you put on (3 to 5 for me) but most of the strength will remain. With the right diet and a change to lifting heavy for fewer reps such as Max OT, the use of something like San V2 can get your weight and strength climbing upwards! Good Luck!

I'm 60, bb for 3 years, got nowhere. Then, 6 months ago I started taking NO2, upped my protein intake and my muscles just EXPLODED. I've cycled off NO2 and am taking creatine now. If you don't want to do NO2 or creatine, you MUST get your protein intake to at least a gram a day per pound of bodyweight, or you'll just spin your wheels not going anywhere like I did.

BTW NO2 widens the blood channels, creating the Viagra effect, PLUS building muscle, so I think killing two birds with one shot is a good thing lol.

Hey George K;
I'm 67, retired at 62when started my exercise regime. Did a lot of reading on supps and took various types throughout the last few years.

I’ve taken No-X along with Nitrixand found it was OK., and also tried different stacks w/NO-X and Nitrix. After that I switched to VNS-Jacked and found that Jacked alone worked better for me. In fact, I eliminated Nitrix, and others like BSN-Betalin-7EC, IDS-NP2, Dymatize Meth-X, SAN V-12, ISS Satur8 and still had better intensity, stamina and pump w/Jacked but,that's me.Many think that supps alone are miracle workers. Remember, supps are supps andtheir intended to enhance your diet and training.

I still take my Vitamins, Protein Shakes, Omega oils and try to eat as clean as I can. My workouts have been enjoyable and I just feel great.

Peace
