YOU CAN ADD CREATINE TO A BULKING CYCLE, TO ADD TO THE GAINS, JUST REALIZE, IT WILL MAKE UP RETAIN WATER AS WELL.

I use it after cycle to help keep gains coming. Obviously on cycle its not necessary. Save it to have something after cycle for the added boost.

People forget to think of running a cycle, like like racing a car, you dont push the nitrous at the starting line, you wait till you need it, then you add the **** that keeps ya going strong. otherwise if you go hard out of the gate your gonna fall out in PCT.

creatine puts water in your muscles. this can be refered to as glycogen stores. basically its muscle food. prohormones does the same thing. thats what makes your muscles so tight and plump on cycle. when you get off cycle some of the weight you drop is because the glyocgen stores go down in your muscle. this is why it is reccomended that ppl take creatine post cycle. because as you take glycogen out of your muscles from not having the ph in your system anymore. you can put that back in with the creatine since it does the same thing. creatine is useless oncycle because it puts water in your muscles just like prohormones do.

Travis you explained it another way. I also use it mentally to know I am using a supplement that I knows that works for me.

yes , theses are the fundamentals of creatine in protien sysnthesis, as part of th urea cycle. But lets get even more simple than that, if you can't drag your ass to the gym and dont move said muscles, what happens. So if you saved the thing that are gonna give your tired body a leg up in PCT whats not to understand. The point is no, it does nothing for performance, but things like this and pre werkout drinks i save for PCT, when your reaching deep to keep gains coming. But with that said you do what werks for you and dont try what werks for others, that how this place keeps going

havne't drawn a clear answer from this thread? Should I save my creatine for pct? Not that its real expensive, so I could just purchase more for pct and continue using it on cycle, but I'd rather not waste it if it was useless on cycle.

BTW: creatine phosphate plays no direct role in protein synthesis.
