^ Good, this is.

I would like to add more about my perspective...creatine can help you put more weight on the bar as a beginner. More weight and better performance aid in increasing hypertrophy. Personally, if I was starting over again there is no way I wouldn't take creatine. There are just too many benefits. I would want to maximize strength and muscle out the gate.

I think the guys that are making gains are working their ass off, just like Kman. They have a good sense that their gains are coming from hard work and diet. Most average schmoes aren't making any gains, so I doubt they would notice anything from creatine anyway.

Size gains from creatine aren't profound for most. But I like creatine because it does make me noticeably stronger. Strength begets hypertrophy.

I can respect your point of view Kman. When I speak of lifters, I generally over speak of serious lifters and never think about under-achievers.
