    1-2 hrs training per day is far too much, remember rest & recovery are a large part of muscle growth. Or as the saying goes "You dont grow in the Gym"

    18 grams of creatine per day is too much and you don't want to workout for 1-2 hours too.

    You don’t need to load creatine. 3-5 grams per day is plenty. You also don’t need more than an hour or so in the gym. If you’re spending 2 hours there, you’re not efficiently using your time. I would also say, that’s too many shakes. Eat real food!
    Donít chase the 1%, there is no magic training routine or diet thatís going to provide any measurable results over the basic principles for getting huge and strong: Train heavy, eat and sleep more.

    18g creatine. It's really too much. I think it's not necessary.
    You should only use 5g per day.
    Exercise at high frequency for 1 hour at the gym. That is the real effect.
