It shouldn't really matter how you dose it throughout the day as long as your consistent and get at least 4-6grams every day. I usually dose some at breakfast, some around workout, and some later in the day. taking it with carbs also may help the effects of ba and can help lessen the "tingles"
I didn't vote because i feel they all could be effective it just depends on which is easiest for you to stick with.PES Representative

i take about 3gms before workout and that is it so far, then about 10 mins later i itch like a mofo and curse until i get to the gym and remind myself its helping my workouts. Might start dosing in the mornings as well.

3g pre workout, 3g post workout.
Because 6g per day is the recommended maintenance dose, but that would be too much to take at once (TINGLE CITY!!!). Using bulk powder, it just makes the most sense to me to put it in with my pre and post workout shakes. Done.
And it's working nicely!

When I use it, 2g morning/noon/night. Straight, simple, easy to remember. It really doesn't need to be tuned to be around your workout.

Spread it out, helps keep serum levels elevated. For normal dosing the 2,2,2 scheme is pretty solid.

2g's 3x a day for 2-4 weeks, only in the first month and than taper down to 2g 2x a day.
On training days, I'll take one dose preWO and one postWO.
Not sure if you saw it before, but we put together a Beta-alanine thread here a while back. It has a fair amount of info

Is there any reason to dose above 6g? Possibly with a front load to get the effects more quickly.
Most of what I read suggests that it takes 3-4 weeks for noticable effect. But, those effects continue for an additional 6-8 weeks afterward in terms of endurance and recovery between sets. Once the stores a "full" so to speak, there is no greater effect when dosing above 4-6g/day.
Any agreement or disagreement with those statements?

As with anything you have to do a little experimentation and see what works best for you. I still believe though that multiple doses throughout the day is your best option as it will at the very least minimize paresthesia.

I would dose it
2g --- 3 times a day
for about 4 weeks, your Carnosine levels should be built up pretty good after 4 weeks, so after the 4 weeks I would go with 2g and 2g
So for workout days
Pre-Wo and Post WO!

2g 30 minutes preWO (AM)
2g post WO
2g before bed
does the trick - a mag article I read suggested dosages above 6g/day do not increase performance
