    Question Creatine question


    I'm about to start using creatine again. I have about two weeks worth of CEE left and due to my current financial limitations I don't plan on buying more right now. I do however have some old monohydrate left. My question is this. If I take the CEE for two weeks, can I then switch to the mono without going through the loading phase?

    Yea, I think the whole loading thing is garbage anyways. I've never loaded in my life with mono and seeing amazeing gains with it. Now I do always take 10gr a day so i dont know if that has much to do with it.

    no need to 'load'


    Your creatine stores would've already been pretty saturated during the cee phase and anything more than 5g per day of creatine mono is too much IMO.
