And then in the morning I'll take a good ol multi vitamin
Creatine has no immediate effects. Why use it pre and post?

Nothing.. I've been off the supplements for over 2 months now and it's made me realise that the industry is a huge money making scheme. I'm still making gains and getting everything I need from real food. I'm still using creatine though, which is costing me R30 a month.

The way I see it - Imbalances can always be fixed over time. So go ahead and keep training as you are. Once it's healed up 100% work a bit harder on the right arm.

Also maybe look at having some needlework done. I'm not talking about that acupuncture rubbish, but deep tissue needlework.

And of course there will be limitations as to how slim you can get them (in terms of general shape) due to genetics.
What does your diet look like?

100%. As you can see I found this out the hard way.

I haven’t done leg extensions in over a month now. Haven’t had one bit of knee pain, and I've been squatting everyday.

When I finish with this Kethin Trainer then I will jump straight into this ! What is it like thou? Do you only squad or is there other muscle groups to train to? I squat each session and do my usual workout afterwards. If you follow his plan I find the workouts for the other muscle groups lacking. ...

So I have some good news. Last week I decided to squat and not do any leg extensions. Only a few re3ally light sets to warm up the knees. Lo and behold I had zero pain while squatting and zero pain the day after. It seems like the extensions are putting strain on my ligaments or something. So happy...
