I have to agree with a former post. 5 grams post workout. People say at any-time during the day. I disagree. I have tried every which way possible and till this day I still believe post workout is optimal!

defiantly take right after a workout. A lot of preworkouts have creatine in them so check the labels if you're taking a pre. Not all creatines are the same, some make you bloat like monohydrate...Con-crete on the other hand doesn't have that effect as much. make sure you drink at least a gallon of water a day, because even though it's rare, you can get kidney stones.

Your only argument was that it was overpriced...By like 10 dollars.....if 10 dollars is a huge issue get a new job.
ok sure sooooooo much more expensive but it's a solid creatine product and I firmly believe in creatine hcl.
A lot of the proteins that have creatine in it is monohydrate and they make the claims that you can gain 10 or 15 lbs, which can be true but it's party due to the monohydrate holding in more water. monohydrate makes you bloat more so when you get off it you're more likely to lose weight.
You also don't have to load conc-cret or cycle it but in my opinion you don't need to cycle any creatine. I used monohydrate and made some good gaines but did lose weight after wards. with con cret I didn't lose weight.
No I am not a shill if I was I'd have more posts than this and would be against ph's saying you only need a solid creatine product to make gains...which is true if you're under 21 but I'm pro steroids and I think they should be legal if you just are regularly checked by a doctor
My advice is not misleading it's just my opinion. obviously you have an opinion on which product works.....so do I
on my statement about preworkouts having creatine in them I was mentioning that saying you doint have to take your preworkout and a creatine supplement right before yourworkout. you'd probablly hit the ****ter mid workout.

If I was trying to make you wast your money I'd suggest cell tech. if you've never taken it before almost any creatine product will probably be like a miracle to you because your body will have more ATP meaning ability to lift harder longer.

yes all creatine does cause water retention but con-cret didn't hold as much "for me". and you're right you don't need to load creatine but if you want results faster load. faster meaning days. I did do research and I guess you can say i did my own experiment by taking it and I only lost a lb when I stopped taking it compared to 4 or 5. strength gains where around the same but i just prefer hcl because I didn't lose size when I stopped.
I'm not a shill apology accepted

Do you think its a good idea to take creatine and erase together? Isnt erase supposed to dry you out and creatine pretty much fills you with water right?
05-29-2012, 11:54 AM
It's totally fine. I've ran erase many times with creatine. No negatives from it at all.Originally Posted by fame126

Actually, while we're on this subject, I tend to bloat on creatine mono, but it's not that bad if I use creapure at around 2-2.5 grams. I'm thinking of trying MCC once my Creapure runs out. What dosage of MCC would be the equivalent of 2-2.5g of Creapure?

Thanks! So about 3 caps of SNS MCC should be enough then. Will look into that as soon as I'm done with my Creapure to change it up a bit. With regards to bloating, I noticed I bloated more with regular creatine mono. When I use Creapure CM vs regular CM i tend not to have the same issue. For both I only use 2-2.5g daily at the most. A friend of mine has the exact same problem.

so does creatine need water or carbs to function? erase pro +creatine +low carb diet should be fine? i

Would kre all be a good idea to switch to precontest? To avoid any type of intracellular water and keep the water in the muscle?Originally Posted by hsk
