comment Is Creatine bad for you?
Creatine monohydrate is a chemical compound, micronized is a process. Creatine monohydrate is the most common (cheapest), researched, and useful form of creatine on the market. Chances are good, but you can micronize anything. Double check your label.

And it is Creatine Monohydrate, with nothing else in the supplement, correct?

This is the best source for creatine: examine.com/supplements/creatine That link gives you the actual studies (plural) ranked by quality, and a lot more detail of the information. In the doses highly recommended in most cases, there is no issues with creatine.

comment What is wrong with CrossFit?
@Krotanix, The people who look at CrossFit really aren't thinking along those lines, and that's really not a critique that I've heard/read a lot about. I covered the most contended aspects of CrossFit. You are correct that training specificity is king for getting the results you want. I would argue though, that people who focus on the strength sports of weightlifting, powerlifting, strongman, etc. are doing so to get better at that sport. I know a number of bodybuilders who are beastly strong, and have good cardio performance. That's why I hate to pigeonhole results into disciplines.

comment How to breathe in lifts requiring tight core (squats, deadlifts)
If your goal is simply to "work out", do what you want. If you are trying to increase the amount of weight you can move, Valsava maneuver is a requirement. If you are already at a high risk of stroke due to hypertension, you really need to get that fixed before you attempt to work on lifting heavier objects. Do keep in mind that none of the record holders for powerlifting, weightlifting, strongman, or highland games have suffered a stroke. Some have broken blood vessels, but most people on this site aren't moving near the weight they do.

comment How do I increase my flat barbell bench press?
For me, hitting 235 didn't take that long. Less than a year for sure, probably about 8 months, but my bench is weak. Taking that to 290 took years. Again, my bench is weak and I started at around 40 years old. It gets much harder as the weight goes up. In this case we are assuming what the weights are, and have not been told for sure.
