How to Get 6.5% Stronger in 5 Days (or less)

squat rack

Flash back to 2001.

The week before, I had done 365 for five reps on the back squat, and it was pretty challenging. I could have done MAYBE one more rep if my life depended on it. It was a tough, but high quality, final set.

Well I came in the next week, and cranked out two extra reps with the same weight!!

That may or may not sound like a lot to you, but if you do the math, this works out to a roughly 6.5% strength increase … in 5 days.

Crazy right?!?

How did I do it?

Well, it was when I started taking creatine.

I had done about five days of “loading” (where you supplement with 20 grams per day) prior to this workout.

That was it. That was the ONLY thing I changed, to get 6.5% stronger in 5 days.

Not bad. I’ll take that ALL day long.

Needless to say, I was a convert … and I have been using creatine on pretty much an on-going basis since (for about the last 14 years).

As you can imagine, if you are able to get a few extra reps with a given weight on all of your workouts, on a regular basis, you are going to make faster strength and muscle gains over time.

There are also a lot of OTHER reasons why you might take the product – which you’ll learn about tomorrorow in an interview I recently did with Mansal Denton, owner of the Hyperion Strength supplement company – but in the meantime, I wanted to let you know that if you are interested in taking creatine to accelerate your strength and muscle gains, I have a deal I scored exclusively for FVT customers from Mansal, that’s good for the next couple of days.

At the link below, you’ll find the  … use the code forestvance20 at checkout, and you’ll get 20% off – PLUS free shipping – when you order by midnight on Nov 25th, 2015:

=> Hyperion Strength creatine / fenugreek combo pack


** This is important … you will find the “recurring shipping” box checked automatically when you land on the page linked to above …

I just asked Mansal about this, and if you want to get the deal I am providing to you here, make sure that you order as a ONE time purchase (you can always order 2, 3, 4 or more units of the product if you’d like to stock up)

Then, you’ll need to click the button that says “checkout” … and THEN you can enter your discount code.

Here’s what the purchase flow should look like:


creatine 5


creatine 6


creatine 7

Cool? Cool!


Now, one caveat … creatine is NOT for everyone. If you aren’t training consistently and your diet isn’t dialed in at least 80 or 90% of the time, you need to get that sorted out first. You can make progress just doing these things, WITHOUT creatine supplementation.

In fact, if the last sentence describes you, I would recommend you do NOT take creatine at this point.

But if you are already training regularly, and your eating is on the right track, then creatine could be a great thing to add into the mix to take your gains to the next level.

In the interview that I’ll share with you tomorrow, we cover a TON of interesting stuff about creatine … including why taking it with fenugreek (which is included in the product bundle I linked to above) is a great way to increase uptake by the muscles, without having to take it with a bunch of sugar.

We’ll also talk about safety of the supplement, proper dosage, timing of WHEN to take it during the day, and a lot more.

So stay tuned :)

But in the meantime, if you are looking to get stronger FAST … and you aren’t already taking a quality creatine product … check out the Hyperion Strength creatine / fenugreek combo.
