    Creatine Question! I need Advice!


    I have reached my goal and am ready to put creatine in my pre-workout and diet to reach higher, gains and lifting.

    What is the Best brand?

    What are some tips to use it the best?

    If you've been resistance training, then you should ALREADY be using creatine.

    There is no "best brand". Creatine monohydrate (CM) will serve you well enough.

    If you're looking for a creatine product that offers MORE, they ARE available.


    Best Creatine Products

    The top 3 creatine products, IMO are:
    * NeoVar Recomped (also acts as a nutrient repartitioner and insulin mimic)
    * Cre-02 (also acts as a nutrient repartitioner, and has a blend for endurance enhancement)
    * Kre-Alkalyn (pH corrected CM)


    To Maximize Usage


    Creatine Monohydrate

    Option A
    Dose - 5g 60 min pre-resistance training

    Option B
    Dose - 5g immediately post-resistance training

    Option C
    Dose 1 - 2.5-5g pre-resistance training
    Dose 2 - 2.5-5g immediately post resistance training

    CM is best utilized with simple carbohydrates (especially after resistance training; and also helps with recovery dosed thus).

    However, everyone has different dosing protocols that suit them best re dosage (although ~5g/day is enough) and timing.

    Creatine loading (i.e. 20-30g/day for 5 days, before going to 5g/day thereafter) is OPTIONAL.


    Neovar Recomped

    Option A
    Dose 1 - x* caps immediate post-resistance (or cardio, if no resistance training and cardio instead) training AND THEN EAT A MEAL CONTAINING ~50g CARBOHYDRATES 15-20 MINUTES AFTERWARDS
    Dose 2 - x* caps 15-20 minutes pre-meal with at least 50g carbohydrates (either earlier or later in the day)

    Option B
    Dose 1 - x* caps 30-40 min pre-resistance training
    Dose 2 - x* caps immediate post-resistance training AND THEN EAT A MEAL CONTAINING ~50g CARBOHYDRATES 15-20 MINUTES AFTERWARDS

    Option C
    Dose 1 - x* caps 30-40 min pre-resistance training
    Dose 2 - x* caps immediate post-resistance training AND THEN EAT A MEAL CONTAINING ~50g CARBOHYDRATES 15-20 MINUTES AFTERWARDS
    Dose 3 - x*caps 15-20 minutes pre-meal with at least 50g carbohydrates (either earlier or later in the day)

    * The recommended dosage (i.e. caps) per dose is on the "Dosage Chart" on the label; varies according to weight.


    Cre-02

    Dose - 2 caps 60-120 minutes pre-resistance training

    You will need to experiement with this. For better performance during cardio and the gym I dosed 60 min pre-cardio, which was also 120 min pre-gym (i.e. I did cardio before the gym).


    Kre-Alkalyn

    Resistance Training Days
    Dose - 2 caps 40 in pre-gym and 2 caps immediately post gym

    Non-Resistance Training Days
    Dose - 2 caps first thing in the morning

    Yeah if your just looking for a nice cheap affordable creatine you can always get bulk creatine monohydrate at NP. Its what i use for the most part its been a staple for me for awhile now with how affordable it is there.

    That's probably enough. You might want to pick up some pure CM so you load for a week.

    Ok, so you were ALREADY using a creatine product (i.e. Black Powder).

    That's ENOUGH creatine re Combat Creatine (you don't need another creatine product).

    I would also make sure that you're using a multivitamin, good fats, and some BCAAs (if your protein powder doesn't have them in).

    And if you're bulking, remember that FOOD is your best "supplement".

    As Rosie said, with a bulk...your number 1 friend will be food, and lots of it.

    I am glad to see you have chosen ragnarok, and it will not let you down. Any questions on dosing for optimal effectiveness, feel free to shout
