Apparently, my urologist says I can no longer take creatine as he thinks that what the cause of my two bouts of kidney stones. I've not taken creatine since November, and my arms are noticeably smaller. I am guessing that is due to the lack of additional water in my cells. Is there anything else I can do to build more mass in my arms w/o the creatine? I'm pushing the weight, but arms have not gone back to pre-kidney stone levels.

Creatine is still a thing? I thought its benefits were debunked back in 1998.

Drink plenty of water and take in adequate protein, you'll be fine.

Not sure why you thought that. There's plenty of research out there proving the benefits of creatine.

I recently started taking it again and I can defintely tell a difference. I'm making strength gains faster and need less recovery time between sets.

Rick, I've heard that L-Arginine provides a better "pump" during workouts. Worth looking into.

It definitely provides more libido. I took that stuff for like 5 days about 10 years ago and it was like viagra.
 

How This "Nice Guy" Steals Women from Jerks

Did you know a woman can be totally UN-ATTRACTED to you...

And she'll still sleep with you?

If you've ever seen a girl go home with some asshole she didn't even LIKE, you know this is true.

But how is this possible?

Because deep inside her brain, sexual desire has nothing to do with what you LOOK like...

And everything to do with how you make her FEEL.

Matt Cook knows this all too well.

Matt is a nice guy... but he steals women from JERKS all the time.

In this free video training below, he'll show you how he does it:

I'll look into the L-Arginine. I've used it before, just gave me headaches. Creatine was the sh!t, just not worth dealing with kidney stones again.
