Anytime you can get a muscle cell fully volumized or expanded, that muscle cell is a lot more apt to grow after being stimulated by a hard workout. This is one of the many advantages that steroids provide, increased nutrient and creatine loading makes the muscle much fuller even if the lifter doesn’t lift. But……what if you, like most lifters don’t want to do steroids? Well you can at least volumize the cell and one of the simplest cheapest ways to do so is with creatine and or taurine.

Everyone knows what creatine is and does, but most people are clueless about how to make it work. Many years ago after I had tried creatine I saw an article by Charles Poliquin where he stated that many people respond poorly to creatine unless they use LOTS. And by that he meant 2-3 times what most manufactures recommend. The standard 25-30 grams a day for 5 days and 5 grams a day works very poorly for many people. And LOTS of these same people get great results by merely upping the dose to 15-20 grams a day as Charles suggested. And you know what? It truly works wonders for many people. Now that we have creatine ethyl ester there is much less reason to use that much and many trainees are getting great results, including many that don’t respond to any amount by using anywhere from 3-8 grams a day of CEE. Some of you are no doubt balking about having to take so much of either of these products, but they are both dirt cheap and what’s better, taking a dose that doesn’t do jack and saving a few pennies, or having something that can really help your training?

Many non-responders do AWESOME with taurine as their primary cell volumizer. Like creatine it is dirt cheap and if you have done creatine and found it did little for you, give taurine a shot, for many people it simply blows creatine out of the water with it’s ability to enlarge the muscle cell. What doses for taurine? 5 grams 3 x a day works great. I often have guys put on 10 lbs or so within week of starting creatine and taurine together. Sure it’s only water, but in the long run, having the muscle cell volumized WILL help it grow in response to heavy workloads and a sound diet.

I think cell volumizing is misunderstood because ppl think of it as just blowing yourself up and doing pump exercises. What a lot of ppl don't realize is increaed cell size gives you leverage to lift more weight. If you slap more plates on you're going to stress more muscle fibers and make real lean mass gains.

Besides the ones mentioned, glutamine is a decent volumizer(perhaps the only real use for it). The best way to take them is toward the end of a workout with glucose(malto) or in your recovery drink.

iron addict, I love your posts. Keep up the good work.

While I have a layman's understanding of how creatine works, I don't regarding taurine.

Do they utilize the same "receptors" (if that's the right word) ? E.g. Does consuming taurine simultaneously with creatine mean that less of one is assimilated and utilized?

If not, I'm wondering if it would be better to cycle one for a time, say creatine initially for 4-6 weeks. I understand and have experienced that the body begins to lose sensitivity to it after a time, and one needs to stop taking it for a period. And my thought is to take Taurine instead during the creatine "off" period, say a similar 4-6 week stretch. And then just keep repeating.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Be well.

SOME INFO ON TAURINE

Taurine may also lower blood pressure when taken in high doses. This can be extremely benifitials to those who have a history of heart ailmanets in hte families.

Taurine is useful to diabetics who may also suffer from low levels of Taurine, according to recent studies. This can lead to a thickening of the blood. Taurine may also help the health of nerve cells. Taurine may aid in the digestion of fats and supports healthy cholesterol levels in the blood. Taurine also acts as a natural diuretic and detoxifier and is necessary in the healing of wounds.

Taurine is also concentrated in the eyes where it helps protect the photoreceptors in the retina of the eye from oxidative damage caused by sunlight, while stimulating your body's ability to remove waste by-products that accumulate in the retina. Acts as inhibitory neurotransmitter.
