    Yeah. Good article.
    Creatine is a must.
    I read in a forum that you don't need to load or cycle. Just take it all the time at 3 grams a day.

    Anyone care to weigh in on my statement?

    I would seriously reconsider what the guy in that above link is talking about. I didn't even bother to finish reading the article once I read what he had to say about Kre-Alkalyn. There is research proven results showing how supplementing creatine with sodium bicarbonate increases lift capacity and duration, i.e. strength and endurance. Also he makes his claims of daily supplementation of CM of .15 times bodyweight with pure hypothetical arguments, no research whatsoever. Not the kind of advice worth following. It reads like a poorly developed research paper by a masters student in nutrition or exercise science.

    Loading phases are for saturation dosing, to reach a stable/constant and usable level within the body. There is no necessary reason to do a loading phase. Many users report GI discomfort with such high doses anyway. Eventually your body will reach saturation with normal recommended dosages

    I don't know man-- he also has written about a "theory" called carb back loading. Is his work about that nonsense as well? Clearly, you know nothing about the author

    You're right I do not know who the author is, but it is blatantly clear the article to which you have linked to is poorly researched and therefore poorly written. I do however have a background in biology and chemistry and know BS when I see it

    Edit: Kiefer obviously knows what he's doing but that article needs to be reevaluated to correspond to new known data

    3gs a day is a maintenance dosage as the body expends just under 3g's a day in a normal active human. Also I find products using creapure is the only creatine that seems to work consistently and well for me. I have yet to try chelated products and have some green mag waiting to be tried so maybe that will change my mind on creapure only.

    Loading phase in unnecessary IMO and start at the 5Gs per day for about 7-10 days than go to a little over half scoop (assuming a scoop is 5 g's.
