Creatine

#1
Quick question -

I have to go for my initial medical this Sunday. I've been taking Creatine for a few weeks just to help out with my general strength & resistance training before my recruit selection.

Does the Army have any problems with people taking Creatine?? :?

Creatine = food. It is found in high quantities in fish and red meet.

Overated as a supplement.

I wouldn't tell them, its not illegal, its just food. Same with taurine, its an acid that is in bile in the body, why would you mention it to a doctor?

Worth noting, I have heard stories of some doctors making a huge great fuss of creatine and that its harmful on your liver. Its garbage.

yeh food but shows up irregular or something in your urine test, saw the doc was struggling to look tru my files and doing alot of 'hmmm' and 'haaa'ing. Heard on MT bout it before so told him anyway and was very understanding, just said it was fine at the moment but would not need it in basic.

I wasnt really taking it to bulk up or anything, just to improve strength. My upper body strength was, quite frankly, shite.

Yeah i was happily waddling around the floor with tackle waving about, then get asked to sit on the examineing bench while the doc snaps on some lovely ole latex gloves while mumbling 'Eany Meany Miney Mo, I wander where my glove will go'.

I already knew but I can imagine some people have some trouble with this one so just dont get it wrong.

The glove is so he can push down on your tongue while he checks the back of your troat, DO NOT drop your trousers and bend over his desk!
