    Ok so I've been using creatine for 5+ years and I've tried multiple types and methods. For bodybuilding it's honestly the only product other than PH/DS that have ever given me results. Over the years I've read so many different articles, cycles, etc on the proper way to dose and honestly I've tried them all I think..... Other than bloating I've seen very similar results with every method.

    My current method is no preload with 5g per day after workouts. I also feel that you don't need to cycle on and off and dosing with sugar doesn't make a difference. Concidering cost vs effectiveness my Favorite Creatine is SNS creatine mono.

    I would like to hear from one of our forum supplement experts to see if I've figured it out.

    Questions:
    - preload?
    - cycle on and off?
    - 5g per day?
    - pre or post workout
    - sugar with dose?

    Thanks

    No need to preload.
    Not necessary to cycle but can if you feel the need.
    3-5 grams per day.
    Timing is irrelevant but a study recently came out showing post-workout dosing was beneficial.
    No need to dose with sugar or anything else.

    Cycling is a good idea (or workout days only) as continual use can downregulate Creat1 (the creatine transporter).

    You know you miss the days of suggesting 20 grams a day of pre-loading and asking if PCT was needed after
