Would taking creatine and whey protein on easy days such as kenpo x and stretch x during P90X have any positive impact?

Would taking creatine and whey protein on easy days such as kenpo x and stretch x during P90X have any positive impact?

Yes: You are still building muscle with those activities, and you are still building muscle from the resistance training you did before.

How fast will I use muscle if I stop taking creatine and whey protein for a few days?

Almost none.: If you maintain activity, being of the protein supplement will cause no loss, becuase you will utilize any muscle breaking done. Don't worry at all.

I have low sperm count. So that I am using spermotrend. And I also go to gym. So that can I take creatine and whey protein too?

I have low sperm count. So that I am using spermotrend. And I also go to gym. So that can I take creatine and whey protein too?

Yes: Yes, it is fine to take creatine and whey protein, though I advise a whey protein from grass-fed cows not given hormones and processed at low temperature. I also a advise a good multivitamin and possibly extra zinc. Many other herbs like ashwagandha and tribulus may be helpful in increasing sperm counts. See http://natural-fertility-info.

Read label: The label on the container probably has a recommended amount. However you do not need to take this supplement if you are taking a normal mixed diet. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

I want to workout nd have creatine nd whey protein. What r the side effects?

Stay hydrated: A danger of creatine is kidney failure. Do not take more than directed and do not take the loading dose for a prolonged period. Stay hydrated! Some baseball players were hospitalized from excess creatine use causing renal shutdown. Whey protein is generally safe but excess protein is also hard on the kidneys. Again drink plenty of water.

I want to know if there is any side effects in using whey protein and creatine?

Kidney problems: Whey protein is a milk derivative. If you are lactose intolerant this will not help you build muscle b/c it will lead to bloating and abdominal pain. If you have no lactose intolerance, it is a good source of protein. Men need about 1.2-1.7g/kg/daily of protein to help build muscle mass. Creatine builds muscle but with all protein you MUST drink alot of water since it is hard on the kidneys.

I have been working out and been taking whey protein. I am an ectomorph. I have started taking creatine. Will it help?

I have been working out and been taking whey protein. I am an ectomorph. I have started taking creatine. Will it help?

NO: Creatine with help you recover so you can work out effectively again. To build muscle, eat proper amounts of protein, complex carbs and green veggies. Eat enough- that's the biggest mistake- and lift weights that are heavy enough that you cannot do more than 8-10 reps with proper form

Whey protein/creatine at 17 years old, is this okay?

Most likely: Whey protein is safe for 17 y, assuming that person has no health problems. Rarely is a 17 y male not skeletally and anatomically mature. Therefore, it is most likely safe to take creatine as well. However, this is not a "magic bullet." if you take these products and don't workout, you will just gain unwanted weight. Lastly, almost no scientific study has been done with.

Can I breastfeed while using whey protein with creatine?

Can I breastfeed while using whey protein with creatine?

No problem: I see no problem with this protein supplement. Your body will process & use the products of your diet & assemble milk for baby based on babies needs, not necessarily what you eat. You will not necessarily make your milk into super milk by doing the supplement, but I see no harm to baby from its use.

Is it bad for me to take whey protein and creatine while on accutane?

Is it bad for me to take whey protein and creatine while on accutane?

I don't advise it.: Accutane already has the potential to cause liver and kidney damage and should not be taken lightly or without close monitoring. High protein and creatine powders add an extra layer of stress to your system & could cause dehydratiion. In the long run, it takes time and hard work to build muscle, and you only need modest protein in your diet to supply that.

Was wondering if it's okay to take whey protein/creatine at 17 years old?

Was wondering if it's okay to take whey protein/creatine at 17 years old?

Yes whey, no creatne: With resistance (weight) training. Limit carbs. For fastest results, do the slow carb diet or south beach diet at the same time use your choice of whey protein drinks/powders. Of course, follow this advice only when cleared by your doctor as certain disease states would not support this. I'm a big fan of: http://www. Somanabolicmusclemaximizer.

I m very skinny, and I go to gym, which suppliments do u suggest me among whey protein or creatine?

Avoid Creatine.: It has no proven benefit. A balanced diet with no more than recommended supplementation with whey protein is fine used after your workout only. No supplements on non-work-out days. Discuss with a reputable trainer or dietitian.
