    What carb source do you mix your creatine with?


    Hey guys, I was wondering what type of carbs do you use with your creatine. I've heard grape juice or waxy maize. What is your favorite and how much do you use with your creatine.
    Thanks guys

    @JohnRock. You don't take 5 grams before and 5 grams after your work out.

    I mix it with BCAA, Leucine, and crystal light. I usually consume 1.5 cups of oats and pop 1 slin sane on top of that.

    I've always just taken 1 tsp (5 grams) post-workout with whatever my shake is - typically just whey isolate when I'm cutting and either isolate + oats or isolate + oats + WMS when bulking.

    Apple Juice or whatever I have in the fridge, sometimes just a little dextrose added in water. I take mine before I workout though.

    It really does not matter.

    I was just reading something called the "Creatine solution" or something, which advocated mixing something like 30 grams of regular creatine monohydrate w/ 104 grams of sugar into 1 gallon and drinking throughout the day for 2 wks straight, followed by a regular 5-10 grams/day. Thought about trying it sometime

    Definitely would like to see someone log this. Personally anything more than 10g of mono would make me feel like crap.
