    Green Mag: pre, post or during workout?


    Hey,
    Everything I've read, including the FAQ, seems to suggest taking Green Mag pre-workout, but I always took my creatine monohydrate post workout. Just wondering if it really matters, and if so what you'd recommend?

    Thanks!

    Most users do 1/2 scoop pre and 1/2 scoop post... I myself would go 1pre/1post.. it's still 6 weeks worth of creatine..

    for green mag, 1 scoop preworkout works. I don't really find taking it at a specific time all that helpful. Still, if you prefer 1 hour pre-workout. If you drink a LOT of water with your workout like me, 1/2 scoop pre, 1/2 scoop post.

    I am going to purchase green mag tomorrow and was wondering the same thing. Is 5g of creatine enough for someone weighing 200 pounds. Would it be effective to take 1 scoop before workout and 1 scoop after or is it true that the body can only use 5g of creatine at a time. I really want to bulk up and use creatine as a means of achieving this. So would it be ok to use green mag pre workout and a creatine mono supplement post workout or is that too much?

    5 g of creatine IS ENOUGH.

    No, don't useGM pre and mono post.

    1 scoop of GM will be fine, don't worry about it.

    It shouldn't effect the creatine at all.
