i take creatine mono and have been for along time. I dont load phase i just take it on days i work out and normally take saturday and sunday off. Is this hard on my insides? do i need to take a few weeks off?
Hmmm suprised at the question actually. Well everything can be hard on your liver even plain old protein its just how much one takes. Taking enough milk thistle and water then you would be fine. In my experience if I use creatine products over 2 months I find it to be less effective, so I take about 3 or 4 weeks off of creatine and then repeat the 2 month cycle once again but hey thats just me.
thanks for the quick responses.....yea i use anywhere from 5 to 15 grams a day mon-friday. On leg days i use more and arm day i use less, it is just the way i do it but i want to make sure i aint hurting myself.
creatine is linked to lots of other benefits other than gaining muslce mass. Its good for buring fat, joints, metabolism, etc. When i get it i take the entire tub or bottle of it, than take a break from it.
There are mixed thoughts on how you should run it, I would mess around with the doses and timing to see what gives you the best results. I dont really trust what "rules" or "guidelines' most people go by.
o ok thanks rosie
rosie is da bomb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
