    once your muscle creatine levels reach maximum capacity it only takes around 2-3g per day to maintain those levels for an average person.
    the excess you consume will be converted into a waste product called creatinine and pissed out.

    When you start s_hitting explosive fire more than once a day, you'll know THAT dose is too much creatine, and you should back down.

    My creatine monohydrate schedule when I take it (6'4" 245) is this:
    Week 1: 15g/day, 5g TID
    Week 2-5: 4-5g/day, ~1.5g TID

    It seems to be real person dependant, i've seens studies that use .2g per kg, based on that I'm in the habit of using 20g on workout days, and I can feel the difference in strength/recovery, after I stop.

    Then other people recomend only 5g a day. But like ecu19 says, quite graphically , thats when you know its too much.

    ahh, mi dont know guys, i dont think its the creatine thats killing my stomach, i ordered a butt load of cytogainer, and its really hurting my stomach, the sad part is i split the serving so i get half a serving twice a day, this sucks, i have 3 massive jugs, and like the taste and effectiveness alot, any thing that will help me out with the discomfort.


    encase you ask why i have so much is because i got it on sale.
