    Creatine and BCAAs before workout


    I'm doing IF now and I'm wondering if it's worth taking creatine before my workout if I take only my BCAA's with them? Does the creatine get into my muscles like that or is it a waste of creatine?

    Ya that is fine. Timing of creatine intake isn't crucial and taking it pre-workout fasted is still beneficial.

    Creatine is non-time dependent, just take 3g a day and you will be fine. If you are doing IF I would still suggest keeping BCAAs out of the workout, pre or post...fine , but not intra. Take them leading up to your fast breaking meal.

    I really like Creatine pre or post but have no real reason why. It really doesn't matter on the timing.

    Any reason? It really makes no difference, although I'd say just go in totally fasted without bcaas and take some leucine before you break the fast. That way you don't use the amino for glucogenesis to burn during your workout.

    IVe found no difference in my workouts with taking creatine before or after, creatine works on muscle saturation. Once they are saturated you just need to keep dosing it at 3 g a day. And yah why no BCAAs pre workout/intra workout, ive always found it to never hurt.

    creatine research has come so far, who remembers all the loading, unloading, grape juice, pre post saturation mania that was the late 90's early 2000's

    Most new creatine research if not all of it still uses a loading phase.

    I do! Except I took mine with apple juice I had to hide taking it from my friends and wrestling coaches lol.

    Creatine is an amazing supplement for all that it does and should be a staple in my personal opinion. I just go mono (no boating problems) any time of the day usually in the morning. It is one of the most researched, proven effective and safe for a reason.

    What kind of creatine and aminos are you using?

    I agree. I like Mono & MCC the best. I don't notice any bloat so I use Mono most of the time.

    This is how I take my creatine also. No reason here either just seems to be easier to remember this way, plus I don't get bloated from mono. I still want to try MCC though.

    MCC seems to be the go to choice for those that bloat with mono. SNS has both creatine mono and MCC.

    Do me a favor though - after you try MCC will you let me know differences between that and mono?
