Your kinetic strength goes up and your potential strength stays the same. Mental has nothing to do with that part of the lift. If that were the case it would not matter if you took creatine or not. Mentally you could just focus and still put up the weight. You are also less likely to risk injury when their is more water in there.

i personally do not think it matters, though i was specifically talking about being loaded with glycogen. that being said i really dont see much awesomeness with creatine (blashphemy i know.) it helps hold water which i can do with high sodium. doing event training is when i see the benefit of having large stores of glycogen and even creatine. for one rep lifts like pl i have hit huge lifts with relatively low amounts of sugar in me and using no creatine. i do eat pounds of red meat a day so im sure i have sufficient levels anyway

If you eat loads of creatine in your diet it probably won't help. But if not it will. Creatine is responsible for fast twitch movement for up to 10-15 seconds so the higher the better up to a certain point in which it will have diminishing or no returns.

the carb cycling is a problem because I'd rather just stay on the monohydrate. I started gaining some fat whem using the simple carbs everyday tho. I may still do it when I get a little leaner. My goal is gain mass and stay fairly lean. Don't want to do the old school bulking and cutting but I might allow a little fat gain.

im very sensitive to carbs also but depending on how much work im doing i will adjust all my carbs to peri window.
another thing you can try (this is very indivualistic) is on non training days eat zero carbs and very litte fat (maybe 30-40 gm of efa) and gorge on protein. yes it sounds nasty. whatever. i can run this for almost 4-5 days straight before i start losing my mind though i never have to bc i train so often that i get carbs daily. when i do load up it seems to go to all the right places

yes.. but from what i understand if you have full levels of atp to begin with and doing a heavy single only you wouldnt need the creatine as it would only help restore atp correct?

I'm not really that sensitive. I was doing a dextrose, whey and creatine shake every morning besides the carbs I ate thru the day. On low carb days I now eat practically zero half the day and allow some in the evening. This seems to work ok for me. When I load is mostly on wo days but sometimes I just feel like I need them and load then.

this is true and I understand you're talking about it as fuel. The leverage thing always comes into play for me because I'm only going to do a heavy single rep on the frontend of a fairly long wo and you know creatine and glycogen help with heavy. Long wo's.
