So, I've been thinking about hitting big for a few months. It's been a long time since I last did mass freeweight training, and one could say never that seriously. So I've been planning a little supplemental program to go with the training. I'll slap it here, if you guys could spot the faults I'd be grateful. So the idea is to start gaining mass till' around February-March and cut there to Summer. I'll be going to the gym 4 times a week and divide my muscle groups according to it. But to the supplemental-part. For the first time I'll start taking creatine. I belive the correct way is for the first week to load up with 20g a day. 5g in the morning, 5g before training, 5g after training and 5g in the evening. Then it's 5g a day with my recovery shake for 5-7 weeks, and then take few weeks without crea. And obviously drink the appropriate ammount of water with the creatine, i.e. a shitload. My recovery shake is 100g with 380 kcal and 36g proteine and 52g carbs. Along it I'll take the creatine like mentioned and some amino acids. With breakfast and before going to sleep every day I'll down a proteine shake with 370kcal and 86g proteine, 2.8g carbs. How does it sound supplement-vise? The first thing that came to mind is that am I supposed to take my 5g:s of creatine even in resting days during the normal 5-7 weeks? And if so, at the same time I'd normally take it if the days would be an exercise-day? And since I'm rather new at this and haven't massed a looooong time I'm thinking something about 0,5lbs - 1 lb a week, how far-off am I? Thanks in advance guys.
