There has been quite a few weightlifting/fitness threads as of late so I thought this might be a good time. First some quick backround: I've been lifting weights regularly for about 3 months and have seen a lot of improvement. I'm not trying to lose weight, I've already finished that part. For supplements I've only been taking a multivitamin and after workouts I usually have a protein shake (and snack on some carbs). So I've read in a number of places that a 4:1 carbs to protein ratio is best after working out. I've looked for powder supplements that fit this and the only ones I can find have creatine in them. So for anyone that's used creatine, how was the overall experience? I've read a fair amount on it but I really curious as to people's individual experiences. I'm not looking to get huge, but I wouldn't mind the boost that creatine seems to give. So I'm also wondering if people have recommendations on powder supplements I've mentioned above, with and without creatine.
