  1. creatine?


    when is the best time to take your creatine pre work out post workout. How much should you take and should i take more for the first week or so then cut back for maintenance


  2. No need to load.No need to cycle.3-5g daily everday.Time of day taken is user preference,I like mine pre,just try to take around same time everyday however that works best for you.Drink plenty of water.

    no need to load. 3-5g is ideal. time doesnt really matter. its all about saturation. if i am taking a pre workout that has creatine, i just stick to that. if im taking a creatine free pre workout, i take mine post workout. non training days i take it with breakfast first thing in the morning.

  4. I've always taken my creatine with my protein about 30-45 min before and then again the same combo after my workout. It's about ten (5grams a shake) grams on lift days and 5 on rest days. I'm prolly pissing out most of that 10 grams on lift days but its cheap and why not make sure you got plenty going to where ya need it? Maybe it's just me but u think its important to have it in you during workout and after for recovery .

    5-10grams a day is fine and won't give you kidney issues. Just make sure you drink at least a gallon of water a day minumum. If anything you'll piss away alil cash spent. Some supp companies even recommend 10grsms on the bottle.

    As has already been stated, this is a fallacy. Ten grams of creatine a day will not give kidney issues.

    I like to mainline or snort it so I'm not worried.

  13. I mix mine with sterile water and inject in my right testicle.
    It is not the kind of car you drive. It is whether you can flip it.

  14. The jar I have even say take 5 grams 3 times a day for 1 week then 5-10 grams daily for maintenance just wasn't specific for when to take it.

  17. I wouldnt bother with a loading phase, i would take 2-4 grams a day or even just on workout days. By the end of the first month you should be in full saturation. Maintain that dose for about 3 months and then take a break off. This would be my best recommendation.

    PowerMax will also provide you with a full dose of creatine, there are some pre workouts that will do this for you so you can kill two birds with 1 stone. Something to think about.

    There is no need to cycle creatine,that would only be by personal preference.

    This is crap. 2-4 grams a day and cycle it? Don't think so. There's no point in cycling creatine. No point in a loading phase. 5-10grams plain ol monohydrate a day is good. On lifting days split your daily dose pre and post workout so your muscles benefit during and for recovery. Drink plenty of water. A retard with a fork full of creatine couldn't hurt himself , don't make it harder then it has to be.

    Absorbtion. Your most likely pissing out most of it drinking that much water so why not make sure your getting enough in. It can't hurt it can only help. What's your logic?

    that 5g is plenty and you are wasting money on the other 5g you consume.

    That's not logic that's an opinion. Ive gotten better results from years of dosing my creatine this way. Lifts and recovery.

  25. I will say when I use a pre that has creatine I almost always dose at least 3g creatine mono daily to ensure I am getting what I need.As stated above you will just pee it out if intaking any extra.

    No need to get sarcastic , your the one asking the questions

    There is speculation that long term creatine use can effect creatine transporter and cause down regulation after 12 week mark, however with low doses 2-4g/day this may not be an issue. I would personally cycle it like i would with anything but thats more of a personal option.

    2-4 grams of Creatine Monohydrate taken 4-6 times a week is enough to maintain full creatine saturation, this has been shown and is not an opinion. Taking 5-10 grams would be unnecessary.

    This has been shown not an opinion but you started by saying there has been speculation on this? Speculation sounds like more of an opinion rather then scientific data or even personal experience which is all I was offering.

    Exactly,it is just that,speculation.There are current studies showing there is no need for creatine to be cycled and at points I have used it for years at a 3-5g dose with with no break.I do tend to cycle everything I use now at some point or another.
