Considering Creatine?

Considering Creatine?

I made a judgmental statement about Creatine so I thought it was ought some research. Very controversial supplement and it seems that most athletes don’t mind using it. Here is why I do and why the thought of it makes me gag.

1. Chest & Back, Ab Ripper X

1. Chest & Back, Ab Ripper X

DAY 1: I have to say I was surprised and surpassed my expectations of upper body workout. Some second rounds I had to drop on my knees just to go through but never the less…on my test I could only do 8 push-ups 🙂 while in whole hour long workout  I made it to 55-60 total. Funny to you but impressive to me. Ab Ripper was fun…to watch, all I could do is some old fashioned crunches. DAY 90: As…

2. Plyometrics

DAY 1: I had to push pause for every 3rd switch of workout and wait for my heart rate to drop from 145 down to 135 before I could pickup again. Alternatively from stopping I would let 5-10 seconds run out before starting to tag along. I remember thinking…I hope they throw in a 2-3min add for a refreshing drink or something. 🙂 Drenched with slightly rubbery legs and disoriented…and you wonder why I miss my jump shots. Basketball shorts…

DAY 1: I was a quite tired and sore from the Monday workout that I did not know what this round of upper body will bring. Not bad at all, I hung in there pretty good but I only had a red band and no free weights so reps are relative to my form. I can tell that my left side  under shoulder blade an outward was a the most sore sport….damn you pull-ups! I won’t be holding my hands…

DAY 1: Ok, so not to most easiest workout to follow…about 20min in and I was frustrated but I tagged along. I stopped the dvd with 34min left on it. This is one looooong session. Man am I inflexible, this workout made me feel like a Frankenstein. Truth be told, they go way too fast over poses and it is difficult to follow dvd, look up and mimic. Not only because the stands are hard but also due to speed…

5. Legs & Back

DAY 1: This workout I liked, working on legs is something I can apply the moment I roll out of the bed so I liked it. Most of the workout is done with a small weights 10-15lbs. Ab Ripper X, this time I participated about 70% of the time stopped with 1:30 left on DVD. Moving up from the last row in the classroom but not exactly the most active student :). Working. Will need the core strength along with…

DAY 1: The easiest so far for me since I am used to be on my feet and running around. Never the less, HR at 155 is not too bad at all, I wish I could have straightened my legs more…some day. Also, yoga mat was nothing but in the way so the idea to ‘save the carpet’ goes out of the window. I like my teeth better. DAY 90: Yawn…really. If I am going to continue to do this…
