Recent study says after.. but in the grand scheme of things anytime will probably suffice.PES - Physique Enhancing Science

A couple recent articles floating around lean to post-workout benefits but honestly it is a saturation effect, just get your 3-5 g a day

5gms before and 5 grams after. Micronized monohydrate. 10 grams training days, 5 grams rest days. 12 weeks on 4 weeks off. This is how I use it with great success.

I've always had good results post workout. A number of studies recommend this as well

I always take it after but that's just my personal preference. But myhas creatine in it so on workout days I end up taking it before and after. I drive 45 minutes to work so I use some green mag and drink it on the way up.

I take it post but it doesn't matter. Just take it.

I don't think it really matters at the end of the day. When I take my creatine depends on what products I'm using. It could be a preworkout that has a full dose of it then I don't take it post. It could be a preworkout with a good amount of it and then I would take some extra post. It could be I forgot to take it that day and end up dosing at night. It could be a intra-workout product having a good dose of it like SizeOn and then that ends up being my creatine dose.
So yeah, really doesn't matter AFAIK.

I take creatine mono post mostly because of recent studies done. Again, doubt it really matters, but its unflavored and when added to Isotean I cant taste it anyways.

Like everyone has said as long as you take it everyday you should be good. There are plenty of studies either way before or after.

I tend to take 2.5g of creatine mono before and 2.5g after in my Isotean Shake. I dont think it really matters as long as you get it in!

if your saturated to 100% then it doesn't make much of a difference...personally i've taken it preworkout, postworkout, and even in the mornings even though i workout at night.....recently been taking it intraworkout with my bcaa's and haven't noticed a difference for any of them
