    Con-Cret vs Monohydrate Creatine


    I have been working out for a while but didn't start using protein until recently. About a week ago I was talking to this guy at the gym and he said I will get better results if I start also using creatine in my shakes. I have been reading a lot of different things on this Con_crete stuff versus other creatine products. I was wondering if any of you have had experience with both or either.

    i use straight up mono now cuz its the cheapest. MCC is my favorite but $20 will get you a year's supply of monhydrate. Check out SNS's in the store

    I use mono about half the year. Con cret the other half. Particularly when I'm lower bodyfat and wanting to avoid any bloat.

    I have used both. I cannot tell the difference between the two. When I first started using Con-cret, it seemed like it made my muscles fuller, but now I am not sure.

    I can't use mono it gives me stomach cramps and makes me urinate too frequently. Con-Crete did nothing for me nor did KreAlklyn. I'm currently experimenting with CRE 02 (Enteric Coated Creatine & Cordyceps Matrix). It actually seems to be providing moderate strength increases w/o any sides.

    I second the nitrate. Felt a good pump and decent strength gains off APS brand CN and would definitely use again. But I usually use CreaPure.

    Too many nitrates are not good for your health. I do have a bottle of C-Bol.

    Went through three containers of con-cret before throwing in the towel. I've never went the monohydrate route due to bloat, but I usually respond well to CEE.

    ive never responded to monohydrate, but its cheap and worth a shot.

    first time i tried con-cret was also the first time i tried no shotgun. i thought it was amazing and all my lifts went up at least a little... the 2nd time i tried it was with the newer version of assault (which also has concret in it) and i did it for at least 2 weeks longer than the first time with NO results whatsoever. my conclusion with that whole endeavor is that (at least FOR ME PERSONALLY) no shotgun is probably awesome, and concrete sucks. haha

    i know people will disagree with me, any maybe its just some kind of placebo effect, haha, but krealkalyn is the only type of creatine ive taken and seen gains each time (albeit modest gains).

    never tried nitrate, kind of scares me, although i havent done much research on it, so the 'danger' may just be BS

    Why did you stop? Lack of noticeable effects?

    I will likely be giving AEN's new Creatine RT a fair shake in the near future.

    Definitely mono, if you experience GI distress, then MCC.

    Yes, I had really good results with Cell mass (CEE) didn't like the price or need the extras, not to mention I would cough for a straight half-hour after I took it (maybe sulfites...not sure...). I got some definite "muscle hardness" from the CM, but not a thing from the con-cret.
