    good to have you on. no need to wait 40 minutes before taking in the creatine pre/post workout. you see some dudes taking in a carbohydrate drink immediately after a workout with creatine, then chuggin' down protein only shake 20 minutes later. i dont see the reason to go through the hassle. the body's going to be needing nutrients immediately after an intense workout and there is no need to get scientific and wait for the insulin level to increase then feeding protein in your body....just put the creatine, protein, carbs all in one beautiful shake and drink. i prefer 5 grams pre, 7.5-10 grams post.

    i dont do a loading or a maintainence phase. i just take 5g 30-45 mins pre-workout, and 5g directly post-workout for the extent of the creatine cycle (usually 6 weeks on, 4 weeks off). seems to work pretty well.

    yeh, i would say dont waste ur time with loading phases, just take 15-20g a day for the whole cycle, or if u prefer less, 10-15g. ive never experienced any results with less than 10g a day, but everyone's different.

    I usually don't load creatine mono, although from time to time I will. I've been using V-12 though and probably won't ever go back!

    And damn, 40-60g daily, holy ****! That seems like a kidney buster to me

    i have yet to try v-12, but i still get pretty good results from creatine mono, generally 5-10 lbs per 8 week cycle, so im satisfied, once my gains start dropping off, i will probably look into something like v-12.
