    Ive really never had a problem with monohydrate dissolving... buy some nutraplanet monohydrate or a reputable company like ON or AIsports.

  3. I took kre alk. Didn't do much. Then I took creature which is a blend and it seemed good. But my question is. Right once u get off mono hydrate doesn't most of the look and gains go away?

  4. I felt like I lost alot but when I took time off it, it was because I got sick and didnt eat alot so that could have been a factor also

  5. I love Nutra's Di Creatine Malate. It's cheap, causes me very little bloat, and I only dose about 3 grams a day.

  6. The "best brand" or the "best type" What do you mean? Like company or creatine monohydrate compared to other types?

  7. Any German monohydrate or Universal Storm...

    Hardcore Purus Labs {Rep}
    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

  8. Standard Creatine Monohydrate.

    Pay for exactly what you get.
    It is WELL supported and documented--not by bro science, but by peer reviewed scientific journals.

    Again--Creatine Monohydrate. 5G per scoop. Very affordable stuff.

  10. A recent double-blind, placebo-controlled study found that, after three months of creatine use, test subjects showed no significant increase in body water. In fact, the creatine group showed greater gains in total body mass and fat-free mass. Best of all, this recent study employed the latest in body composition measurements-deuterated water isotopic analysis which utilizes a non-radioactive “tracer”. Now it is possible that some inferior-grade creatine may actually promote water gain that results in a soft, puffy look. However, this can be due to several reasons. One, it may not be due to the creatine, but excess sodium. When cheaply manufactured, excess sodium remains in the finished product.

  11. No one actually has said what it does. From real world experience, I'll tell you that the best benefit you'll get from creatine is lifting endurance. No, it doesn't magically add muscle and no it doesn't turn you into superman. What it does do is enable you to push out those one or two reps past where you think you have to stop. Remember this, because you will only see real benefits if you have the adequate intensity in the gym.

  12. Creatine nitrate is way better than mono but hard to find at some points. It helps putting more muscle in my experience but with mono is like dbol just water gain.

  13. ^^^Nonsense poopie pants

  14. Can't go wrong with the mono. Studies show the stuff works. It does the job. Keep it smart and simple. Creatine Mono to load you up

  15. Brands?

  16. CreaPure!! Creatine Mono is the most studied supplement with the most solid results and it is super cheap!

  17. i like musclepharms creatine personally, up at the top
    T2

  18. I heard costco just started stocking creatine made by cyto sport has anyone tried this their selling it for around fifteen dollars

  19. I have said it once, will say it again.
    Creatine Monohydrate is the most researched and well documented supplement, IT WORKS.

    All the other creatines, well they do not have the research supporting them at this time. A quick search on Pub Med will reveal the studies of Creatine Monohydrate.

    $$$ Why pay extra money for creatine supplements that are marketed as "better" yet lack any scientific standing?
    Stick with Monohydrate, plain old mono. It is dirt cheap and works.

  20. It is mono I was just wondering if anyone had tried it

  21. so from what i thought i knew, creatine taken post workout with a slow digesting carb like grape juice or apple juice, will then be taken to ur muscles where it will transport water and nutrients from your food and protein shakes to your muscles, as well as the endurance in the gym, more frequent urine, also you must drink tons of water through out the day. I take a scoop and throw it in my mouth and wash it down with my post workout shake and then sip on water till about a hour then i have a nice meal or snack depending on the time of the day.

  22. Magnesium Creatine Chelate (MCC) has been pretty good for me

    Creatine is a saturation not an instant effect. Dosen't matter when you take it but to keep saturated you need it every day. As for the grape juice....meh. Oatmeal is a slow digesting carb. Wouldnt it make more sense to cause a fast insulin spike with simple sugars/carbs if the grape juice myth had any merit to get it in the muscles faster? Whey protien dose this. But...the...."drive the creatine into your muscles" myth is busted. I do enjoy grape juice though.

    Creatine monohydrate is the god of creatine....or atleast the only one with proof to back it. Bloat caused is a myth.

    Cell hydration is the concept. Without going into science it allows you to push more weight inducing extra anabolisim from the intensity creatine can induce. You lift heavier you grow. Big fan of progressive overload. Not a fan of 50 + reps with a pink 5 pounder very slowly.

    You know you have seen these guys who do that....I laugh out loud.

    I notice a lot of people talking about cell tech. what is the big deal about cell tech? Good or bad lol

  29. creatine does not work because of water gain it increases atp via increased creatine-phosphate concentration in the muscle. Water is just a consequence not the direct action of the creatine

  30. the cheapest creatine monohydrate you can find. id go to walgreens and pick a decent size for around 10-15 dollars. all other creatines fail and are a wate of money. kre alkalyn has come and failed, ethyl ester is probably the worst, and all these blends that claim no water retention.....welll then they dont work either. take any brand of plain white unflavored creatine mono (some say skw, german, creapure, are the best creatines or are the purest, i dont think it really matters). load for 5 days. always take on an empty stomach. take it with grape juice and water. cant go wrong
