Is Creatine timing bro science?

  1. Is Creatine timing bro science?

    Do you feel creatine timing is bro science and as long as you supplement with it everyday thats all that matters to receiving the benefits?

    I think it's mostly "bro science" in that the practical significance of it is vastly overstated, but there are arguments and research suggesting that some times may be more "ideal" than others, although it is possible that this may just mean a slightly faster time to reach saturation, and then no real difference once saturation is reached. Just getting enough creatine regularly to reach and maintain saturation is far and away the most important factor for creatine supplementation, and really the only one worth considering IMO.

    TL;DR: Don't major in the minors, just take your creatine whenever you remember to and will actually take it regularly.

  4. I think the "timing" was created by the industry along the same lines as the "loading phase"

    Both have been found to be false and 3 to 5 g once a day is all one really truly needs

  6. I think there is some minor benefit to creatine prior to a workout as long as you dont over do it. May help uptake and CP levels
    Nothing I say is medical advice and supplements only enhance and optimize your diet and exercise check with a medical professional before starting any program.

  7. im telling you 1.5 grams upon waking up fasted and 2.5 grams 25 mins and 33 seconds pwo and 1 gram 39 seconds after your last set of biceps curls will show the best results with creatine.

    If anything, post-workout has minor benefits over pre-workout:
    While there were trends, no significant interactions were found. However, using magnitude-based inference, supplementation with creatine post workout is possibly more beneficial in comparison to pre workout supplementation with regards to FFM, FM and 1-RM BP.

    It is possible that this minor difference would have been negated over a longer period of time, as perhaps the post-workout use just helped to reach saturation faster. Honestly, I wouldn't worry about it though, but if you're adamant about optimizing every detail, post-workout may be the way to go.

  9. I honestly think the timing is total bro science. I've never seen any benefit over different creatine timing, consistency is key

  10. I'm what one would call a creatine non-responder. I have tried multiple dosages and types and have seen no benefit. However, creatine supplementation has health benefits outside of just lifting, and it's cheap, so I supplement with it.

    I did read that non-responders MIGHT see a benefit it taken post workout (probably based on the study above), so that's what I do.

    Yeah, even if you notice nothing from it in regards to lifting, there's lots of other studied benefits that make it worth while.

  12. Anyone know if you need to bump it up on anavar. I've seen guys talking about running 20mg a day while on Var. Just don't know if that was broscience as well. Any input/experience would be helpful.

  13. I'm going with "bro science" as well. There are so many threads of discussion on creatine and most say 3-5 grams, any time, all the time. Well, something like that.

    Yeah I figured the synergistic interaction between creatine and var was probably over stated or bro science. I was just thinking if someone was running 20g of creatine because they thought it would be beneficial than I could see how timing of the dosage could come into play. The amount of water you'd have to drink on 20g of creatine would probably be insane!

  16. Like others have said timing doesn't matter. Just get in 5g daily and consistently and you'll be good to go.

  21. i'd say 99% bro science. The only time I think it makes a difference is in a SEVERE deficit. In this case, spreading multiple, higher doses through the day seemed to make a legit difference in how I felt (reduced fatigue). Otherwise, 3-5g anytime is pretty much the standard for me.
