Recommend me a Creatine Product
Currently on Havoc/Mega TRN cycle will be ending in 1/2 wks. Generally non-responder to creatine, want to hit PCT hard not lose gains. Been using ON micronized MONO and CNW esterized in past, Controlled Labs (didn't work). What yall like for creatine?
what, huh? What works for you, esp those who doen't respond to creatine well?

I like plain old monohydrate. I'd take sizeon out of that bunch if you don't like plain monohydrate. Kre-Alkalyn & CEE are other good options
07-22-2007 02:37 PM
i am on pct as well, and using sizeon..so far so good.

a lot of people just stick with the basic creatine mono, just to keep it simple. if u wont mono, well there all the same so go with whats cheapest. if u want something more complicated, such as a pre WO creatine/NO, most people like NO xplode or ragnorak like u posted. me personally, i dont really notice any creatine products do much for me expect make me s*** half way through my WO.

Yea i dont even think creatine is all that its worked up to be, even creatine mono. At best i think a person might get marginal increase in strength, which might lead to a lil muscle gain. I think creatine success is 90% mental and 10% science. I wouldnt even worry bout taken any creatine if i were u.

My favorite creatine is clout, but I mean...it won't really matter, as was said, a lot of people just like bulk mono. I like to start the creatine about a week before PCT begins (last week of the cycle). Goodluck.

Don't consider a pre workout supplement like one of those as a sole creatine supplement. Best thing in my opinion is get the mass stack off nutraplanet, you'll get cee, aee, and cit malate. You can take the cee pre and post if you think your body needs more to get an effect.

I would say creatine monohydrate...tried and true. Other than that I've read many good things about SizeOn and especially Clout. I would really like to try Clout(among other MAN products in the future), once my 1 kilo tub of creatine mono is cashed.
I've tried Kre-Alkalyn and wasn't convinced it was better(or even helped). The word on the street now is that CEE is a waste also.
Also, I wouldn't rely on NO-Xplode to be your creatine source if you were to go that route. While being a good pre w/o mix, you really can't tell how much creatine you're actually getting from it.
Hope this helps.

I like Chaos and i'm currently using SizeOn and i don't really like it much.

I really enjoyed the creatine gluconate bulk from NP. Right now on kreaceps XS, which I'm finding is a great product. I will either stay with it or move to creatine gluconate + cordygen 5 next time.
Or try good old mono + cordygen 5 as a good way to compare kreaceps.

besides a slight increase in strength, isnt the main effect of any type of creatine just holding onto extra water and gaining water weight? then once u stop taking it, u lose that weight and ur muscles deflate slightly, right? that was my experience with creatine mono at least...

It (like almost everything else) does more than what you just see/feel...besides just increases in strength, it helps provide more energy to muscles, and helps pull in more nutrients into muscles. It can also be beneficial to those with neuromuscular diseases.

I feel like the creatine nazi lately, so I won't get into it. But I would not recommend any creatine except monohydrate to anybody.

sizeon contains monohydrate plus like 2 other types of creatine

Thx for everyone's input.
SIZEON tempted me, esp. since in I got Novedex XT to incorporate pre/during pct. Thought there might be some synergy since same company. And I got Glycergrow (underrated) as additional glycerol boost. But no.
CLOUT definitely tempted me. MAN seems like stand up company, owner tells it like it is. They don't have no rep whores anywhere, so I wanted to give em a chance (and maybe will in future). But no.
Decided to go w/ ANIMAL PUMP from UNIVERSAL. Too many good reviews, like the convenience of pills. Will take on wkout days, run my Creatine Mono on non wkout days so should last for 2 months for $32.95. Not bad:
If I'm a moron for this decision, let me know.
Also will be getting Reset AD which I think may have a good synergistic effect w/ Animal.

Out of those, go with the SizeOn, otherwise get some Pure Vitargo to mix with some creatine mono, and enjoy!

Two things (and I will refrain from using the word moron because it seems like you just don't know better ):

This means that some of their products are meant to be used together while others simply could just be used together. If that makes sense.
Often times you'll find people who run different products across different companies to get the synergy they desire. So just keep that in mind. Just because you buy one product from one company doesn't mean you own them your allegiance to the rest of their line.
As far as Universal products and the Animal line...I've never used any of their products and never intend to. I've read alot of opinions from people who are serious about this sport and from people who just do this out of recreation and most say that their products are worthless. Underdosed horse pills is the term thrown around most often. Usually there are just better alternatives. But hey, you could end up liking it. Everybody is different.

I have tried several.
Size-on, Clout, Cellmass, Mono, Chaos, Storm, CEX, And a few others that I can't remember right now. My advise is start out with mono, It's usually the cheapest. Then go from there. There are bunches out and they all say they are the greatest. People react differently so try the simplest and then if you like it try something else.

i dont have a vast experience with a lot of different types of creatines but ive used mono, cell mass, vitargo cgl, ce2 and a couple others right now im trying out size on and i really like it so far.. only been on it about a week and all lifts are up, its pretty crazy for strength and im sure the mass is gonna come soon.. with that said everyone is different though so i suggest what bama said start out with the simplest and cheapest and go from there

Nutrex makes a good tasting creatine monohydrate with waxy maize/vitargo. I think it's called Vitargo-CGL
