Kris asked, “[most high and exalted John] what is ur take on creatine, and i know ur goin to be competing in ninja warrior, and i would like to know how did u go about doing it, as i myself would like to compete in the tournament.”
I’ll do my best to answer both questions…
First, as Rick James once said, creatine is a hell of a drug- or maybe he was talking about cocaine. Either way, it is an expensive but relatively safe way to gain a minor edge in the weight room. It won’t make you grow muscle overnight, although it will make you retain water. So don’t be surprised by the scale showing a weight gain even after you’ve cut back on food, that’s just the extra water inside your body is storing in your muscle cells.
Bottom line, the creatine will help you pound out a few extra reps you might otherwise not have achieved, it will keep you going an extra few minutes when your body might have otherwise crashed.
Second, the auditions are run by the production company, and to the best of my knowledge you buy your plane ticket with no guarantee you’ll make it on the show- much less even get an audition. So the first step is quite simple, either develop an interest in visiting Japan OR make enough money that you don’t mind buying the equivalent of a $700 lottery ticket.
From there I can’t help you since I don’t plan on attempting to audition for the show until this coming summer. Although, I might suggest getting a Japanese pen pal, that might be helpful (someone to show you around, a place to crash, etc.). Wait, I think maybe I am going to do that! See, this is the benefit of when you guys ask me questions.
I hope this helps Kris. If not, please let me know.
