I love the gym i go 5 days a week and treadmill about 45-1 hour a day. I make sure im in tip top shape..Just in case... What is it that you want to improve on?
Hey Will, creatine will not help you with your tendon problem. You need to see a dr, who will probably send you to an orthopedic surgeon. Creatine supports ATP (basically the energy expelled during workout). All it really does is give you the extra energy to complete a couple extra reps you wouldn't have the energy to complete without supplementing. Creatine supplementing absolutely works if done properly. And yes you MUST cycle. The body naturally produces creatine and not cycling can have an adverse effect on your natural ability to produce it. High quality (grass fed optimally) beef is a good way to get an extra little boost of creatine naturallyI've been noticing on my butterfly presses between about 210 and 300 my left arm is getting a pain in a tendon or something like that, I'm forced to turn my arm off centre a bit to counter act the tendon pain, it heals but I notice it again whenever doing the presses again. I've adjusted my extensions making them smaller which seems to have helped a bit. none the less I'm wondering if there are any exercises or dietary changes that can remove the tendon stress and allow the tendons to heal faster and stronger.
Also I'm wondering if you think creatine is beneficial and if it should be cycled.
FYI it is on the inner right side of the left elbow joint, so if my palm is up it is on the right side of the left elbow join vein side at about the mid point. I think it may be centered at the lateral epicondyle and shoots down toward my wrist. Perhaps a tendon running with the 'flexor?' or I think perhaps it may run along the pronator. There is no associated connection with the wrist, could the extensor tendon be pulled at the epicondyle? I almost feel a little swelling in it.
