I have recently started lifting again after a little over a year long lazy spell. The last time I lifted I was taking in roughly 1g of protein per pound of body weight and cellmass creatine. I started out decent, but then noticed that the amount I was able to lift dropped off by about 20lbs on each excercise. I am not taking the creatine this time around, but I am still taking the protein. This time, however, I am actually seeing my lifts going up in weight versus down. The 'pump' seems to be the same after the workouts that I remember having with the creatine. Since creatine draws water into the muscle is it possible that this caused my loss in strength? I am doing low reps at high weight if this helps. Thanks!
