    While on creatine my reps always increase but the strength loss upon cesation happens between day 10-15 for me. I dont know the exact amount but Im sure I lose. Some lose much, some lose less.

    What about you??

    You won't notice much after stopping creatine, I don't think you'll loose anything either.

    AWARE72: Interesting information you found. I've never heard of Creatine Phosphate being used as a muscular energy source. I always thought it was the ATP the muscle uses for energy. The creatine (I always thought) only hydrated the muscle, making it larger and able to perform more work. Learn something new each day.

    I don't lose much in strength, but I can lose 1/2" off of my arms when I come off and my energy levels aren't as high.

    I think any lose I have if any happens so slowly that I don't really notice it. On the other end however I can always feel it kicking in when I start back after a layoff.

    I don't lose any strength,I just lose reps. I fatigue quicker without the extra creating stores. I adjust quickly though and mix my diet and timing up a bit to help with this.
