    Creatine during off week?


    Have a planned off week Coming up late feb. Currently using SNS MCC at 5 caps a day on training days and 4 caps a day off days. Been on 4 weeks. Should I stop taking the mcc for the 6 days I wnt be training? Or maintain 4 caps a day? Or drop to 2 or 3 caps a day? I will have been on for 6 weeks at the point of my layoff. Thanks.

    Just keep it at least 4-5 days of 5 caps that week to keep saturation levels. Won't hurt, won't bloat, won't do you any harm and it will aid your recovery during that off week.

    I would still take the daily dose at least for 3-4 days IMO.

    I usually only take it on training days and if I for some reason take time off from the gym use that as a time to take a break.

    No real need for a break tho and the added magnesium chelate you will get from it is beneficial all the time IMO.

    Ya my answer didn't really clarify anything..oops.

    I wouldn't dose it at all on off days while your working out. I only take my creatine on training days 4 days a week. If taking a week off, take it every other day, that should be fine.
