Okay i used to do this method when I trained Max-ot for about 3-4 years and I got it from ast
the theory is if you load with creatine 3-4 days a week you give your creatine receptors a break and super saturate them. this has worked for me. when i first started bodybuilding I was 175 and in two weeks of the loading I was 185. Im a creatine responder and have been in the past.
It does tend to give you a bit more bloat that is why I m recommending this method in the offseason
so this is what I am doing right now
creatine days 1-4 25-30 grams a day(basically 5 grams with every meal)
then I might do this the next week, especially at the beginning
then I calibrate and maybe Ill skip a week of loading and use no creatine and maybe not..(you be the judge if you need it or not that week)
I have had tremendous results with this method for 3-4 years opf continuely doing it and everytime I go up at least five pounds.
Now pre-contest is a different story I just use it either before , intra or after trainign and take in like five grams on training days
hope you can benefit from this because I sure have
and take breaks from creatine whenever you want. some people cycle it some do not. its a personal choice.
I personally cycle it at times because creatine stores can get built up and not even use it for a month and you still have all the benefits. then when you do go back on you gain some weight.
Its the perfect natural anabolic hands down in my expirience
( seems to have been good to me as well for strength)
