    How many grams of creatine do you take a day?


    Right now I'm taking both Green Mag and SizeON together. About 2.5 Green Mag pre, 5g SizeOn during, and another 2.5 Green Mag post. 10G creatine total for me and EXCELLENT results doing this.

    What about you, how many grams of creatine do you take total a day at a maintenance level, non-loading?

    There isn't an option for ZERO grams.

    I used to use Size On, 6 - 8 pills a day for over a year. Then I stopped to see the effect and I noticed less cramping.

    I never load, I always combine it with glutamine and whey. I take it pre-workout and just before I leave for the day. Its seems to work best for me when cycled. I never talked to anyone who used it any other way.

    I was taking 10g (w/ 50g dextrose) PWO for a while. Recently started taking ~7.5g intra-workout (w/ Xtend) and another ~7.5 PWO (w/ 50g protein, 10g bulk BCAA & 60 oats), and 10g in the morning on off days (w/ dextrose). Too early to say anything about the results.

    5g mono pre+creatine mixture & 5g mono post when I'm on creatine. There's also some CEE and Creatine Phosphorus or something like that in the mix I buy, but the scoop of that is solely for pre-workout.

    btw some studies have shown that when cycled off creatine for periods of time the creatine becomes more efficent when you cycle on.

    for all of you using like 10g+ mono... is there any benefit of that versus just 5 grams that you've noticed? only if youve used 5g then switched to 10g or vice versa
