Good work Matt, it's hard work trying to squat after some good sets of leg presses.

You're getting some nice consistency in with your training now, bet that feels good. You have much planned for the weekend?

How do you find Skip's creatine? Is it a micronised monohydrate?

Yes it is Micronised Monohydrate. As for how i find it, well i have never used a creatine on a consistent basis so i dont have anything to compare it with, but since using it along with a good nutritional plan i have seen increased strength in the gym.
I see Skip La Cour as a coach and mentor because he excelled in being the best Drug Free Bodybuilder, therefore i believe in him and his products.

All i can suggest is that if you are looking for a creatine, give it a try and see how you find it. It is reasonably priced and was delivered quickly. You can order it from his own website or Bodybuilding.com.
