A 20-year-old male asked:

Are my chances higher to get kidney stones if i take pre workout supplements and creatine the same day of a workout?

Not the key: Your history indicates you've already had kidney stones. The key for you will be staying well-hydrated. Creatine's great for a man putting on muscle, and protein's good after; i hope you're not spending much money on anything else and i trust you're a natural bodybuilder -- everyone i know who's tried artificial steroids has been sorry. Best wishes.
