    Cool I will be adding it with creatine nitrate. Should I cycle it or just keep taking it like I take amino acids everyday.

    this topic have been debated on so much bro .. i asked the question for creatine mono here(my 1st time using it) and most of the advance users will tell ya not to worry about cycling off creatine ..its not needed

    but i always cycle off sups .. so its your call really

    I hear too many conflicting things about it's effect on kidneys and liver. I just cycle it to be on the safer side.

    MCC is definitely a superior creatine to mono when it comes to reaching saturation faster with minimal bloating, at least for me. It's also pretty cheap: if you want to know more about it, the write-up for Ultima v3 gives a very nice summary.

    I have had very comparable results with MCC and Mono. No bloat is a very big plus.

    I logged SNS's MCC earlier this year, and I can tell you it's great for strength gains with none of the sides I got from monohydrate. No bloat and no emergency trips to the bathroom with MCC!

    I'm looking into CN and MCC for the same reasons: I'm really prone to bloating and don't want all those sides. Would dosing the MCC on workout days and CN on non-workout days be good or just overkill/unnecessary? Or maybe use Dicreatine Malate instead of the CN?? I've noticed a lot of supplements have a combination of two of those three in some way, so didn't know if dosing them on alternate days would have the same effect. Not to mention I could get the Dicreatine from NP in bulk and save some $!!

    i havent done CN yet .. but looking fwd to it

    bloating on Magnesium Creatine Chelate – A More Bioavailable Creatine is very rare, none of my buddies have reported it. i would just use MCC on nonworkout days .. it packs on decent strength if you use it everyday which is how its intended to be used.

    reading the description on dicreatine, looks like it can only be used on workout days .. i rather use MCC eevryday ..and dicreatine on pre workout

    Got it. Would you suggest doing this, then: 3g MCC every day and 3g of dicreatine post workout?

    Or would using Kre-Alkalyn instead of the dicreatine be better?

    Much appreciated. If you don't mind, what do you think of this 6 week cycle? I've asked around and everyone I've heard back from says it's a good stack that should get me some good gains (5-10 pounds) over 6 weeks, so long as I keep my diet in check.

    -DAA
    -Inhibit E
    -L-Dopa
    -Beta-Alaine
    -Magnesium Creatine Chelate (still haven't decided if I'm going to use Dicreatine as well, or if I'll use Creatine Nitrate instead of the MCC; want to keep it cheap/economical)
    -Whey
    -Multi
    -Fish oil (I've heard krill might be better)
    -(Also, would throwing DHB or 7-Keto DHEA work, or just be unnecessary?)

    Thanks!!

    That's a nice .. You should reach that goal of 5-10lbs

    Couple of things .. I'd dose only 2caps of inhibit E, use MCC as it has proven to add strength and mass where as CN main purpose is pump

    I'd leave the dhea out of his cycle .. No need for it

    Gotcha. I'll definitely add in the MCC, in that case. Might hold of on the nitrate, though, save some cash, and buy some 100g of Dicreatine from nutra for pre-workout. Thanks for the approval! I'm stoked to get going.

    Alright. I figured the dhea was probably unnecessary. What about adding in DHB or HMB? I'm assuming I don't really have a need for either of those, either, on top of the creatine and diet geared toward mass.

    Thanks fellas!! It's much appreciated. I'm stoked to get going and gaining.

    What do you guys like for your pwo? Jack3d doesn't do a thing for me anymore. I like the focus, but the pumps were no good after two weeks. I normally don't have a problem with focus in the gym, so I'm looking for a little bit more pump/stim feeling. I was looking into MP's Assault. Any other suggestions?

    Just read through... Ive been on 5 caps of MCC on workout days and 4 caps on off days since the start of Jan... I'm noticing diminished effects and holding some extra water now- I'm wondering if I should

    a) drop the dose to 3 caps off days and 4 caps on

    B) dose 4-5 caps on workout days only

    My biggest problem (excuse the pun) is how large my legs and glutes have gotten since starting creatine. My upper body has definitely grown, but my legs grow like weeds and it's gotten to the point where I can't wear regular pants or jeans.

    I love the general strength and power I've been feeling, but the size in my legs is just too much now after 2 month on... I was considering stopping entirely or just figuring out a smarter disingenuous scheme and running it til the end of the month then coming off...

    Ive always done 6caps everyday
    Hmhh as for your legs growing .. Is this a new workout that your doing ? Or you haven't changed anything ?

    I'm glad your growing and enjoying

    when you dose this stuff are you taking all at one time ? Or following the instructions on a label ?

    split doses twice a day

    Ive always done 6caps everyday
    Hmhh as for your legs growing .. Is this a new workout that your doing ? Or you haven't changed anything ?

    I'm glad your growing and enjoying

    when you dose this stuff are you taking all at one time ? Or following the instructions on a label ?

    split doses twice a day
    Yea I usually do 2 caps pre and 2 caps later in the day with food. Coop had told me to use only 4 bc I weighed 165 . I've gained 5-7lbs since starting in Jan. I definitely went heavier on legs but I feel like they just grew so much more than anything else... N after dialing back, they won't reduce in size lol
