Question for OT workout gurus



I'm starting to lift to add muscle, not huge bodybuilder muscle. Is creative good to help build muscle? I'm 6'2 and 210 so what would be a good lifting cycle for me? Yes, I'm a noob

I assume you mean creatine. Yes, it is good. Just get plain monohydrate, unless you like wasting money.

Load it first(10-15g/day for a week), then maintenance(5g/day pre or post workout; don't forget non-training days as well).

I like to cycle off creatine for a week or two every 4-5 weeks. This works best for me.

oh so just like regular dude muscle? yea, that's cool. i hear ya. to answer your question, no, creative isn't good for building muscle, generally. you're usually sitting down somewhere, writing a poem or drawing something when you should be out lifting or eating.

Yeah, creatine will help you.

Start with a basic 3x5 routine and focus on the compound lifts (bench, squats, deads)

For your purposes I don't recommend creatine as it will mostly add unwanted water weight.

Just look up a basic lifting guide. Many on this site recommend Strong Lifts or Sarting Strength.

FWIW, strong lifts has a good no nonsense app that tracks all of your work outs.

Eat around 300 grams of protein a day and lift heavy.

Yeah creatine dumb autocorrect.

Also I had major shoulder surgery last month. Doc said yesterday my body healed way ahead of schedule and it's about 70 percent and my left arm is weak from being in a sling for six weeks.

What are lifting I can do to build it back it up? Creatine is the only thing I've heard of. What are good muscle building supplements?

How about you ask him that. Trying to start lifting a month of major shoulder surgery means you are going to frick yourself up hardcore.

Get advise from the doctor, get a written out plan, and then get a trainer to help you start.

Otherwise you will more then likely hurt yourself, and because of your situation quite possibly badly.

Honestly, I wouldn't worry too much about supplements until you get serious about your routine. If you add anything a protein shake is a good start.

I like muscle milk for the taste, and you can find good deals online.

This is the routine I've been using. I like it a lot. I haven't used Creatine yet. But I'm considering it. What's really holding me back is I dont want to be on it too long and I've heard getting off it is hard because your first few workouts without it are really tough.

re: Question for OT workout gurus


I would start out with 3 sets of 10 reps on all exercises.
Day 1- chest and tricepts
Day 2- back and bicepts
Day 3- shoulder and abs
Day 4- legs and abs

You can change the order of days to fit your needs.
