    I am currently doing British Army training and in phase 1 still. As recruits we are required to TAB (tactical advance to battle) with 15 kgs on our back for upto six or seven miles. I am seriously considering taking creatine suppliment to aid me during tabs and also during recovery. What is the best source on the market at the moment and also the best value for results and money??

    My suggestion would be to get a mod to move tthis to D&S.

    But I suggest you look up Beta-alanine there mate. Its more for overall workrate so supplimenting WITH creatine would probably help you for the sprinting up hills and keeping the overall work up.


    How long are you into phase 1?
    I didn't think you have net access for the first few weeks (well, you're not allowed off base for 5 I think).
    What regiment are you in (infantry I assume)?

    I'm in the process (long and protracted that it is) for sandhurst (at a spritely age of 25 at the moment).
