    The multi/oils/BCAA

    I could do without the creatine and beta-alanine.

    Theres virtually no need to invest in glutamine alone these days. you can find so many products jam packed with it as afar as whey, aminos, pre-wo,etc.

    Multi / Fish Oil / Creatine / Aminos

    Take them as you normally do. I always take the creatine post-workout or in the morning if it's an off day.

    it makes absolutely no difference what time of day you take creatine, as long as you are maintaining saturation
