    Thumbs up

    I would support taking 2 5 gram doses of creatine a day when you are training really hard like that. I have always yielded great strength and recovery benefits when taking 5g pre and 5g post even with one really intense workout.

    I think it could depend on how much you weigh. For example, I think Ronnie Coleman's muscles can absorb more creatine than a 12 year old boy. Extreme examples, but you get the point. I've had great results taking 5g mono pre and post like somebody else mentioned above. Even if it is overkill and I'm pissing a lot out it's a cheap supplement and I know I'm getting all I need and it works.

    On a different note, training twice a day is most likely overtraining. Even at 8 hours apart. I don't think more than once in a 24 hour period is necessary and more could be putting too much stress on your body. You're going to use some back while training chest and chest while training back. Give your body some time to recover after a workout.

    Is this a one time thing or do you train twice a day on a regular basis?

    Nonetheless, creatine should not be viewed as a pre- or post-workout supplement. It's about saturation and saturation doesn't occur within minutes or even hours. And logically speaking, just because you take creatine twice a day at different times won't double your saturation. And I don't think it will necessarily help you replenish again for your next workout. Creatine doesn't work that way:

    Will Taking Creatine Before a Workout Give Me More Energy?

    No, not exactly. Once again for creatine to work your muscle cells must be saturated with it. This takes at least a week to do, so doing it once before a workout will not make a difference. Now if your cells are already saturated with creatine then it will still not make a difference if you take it before you workout. Your body must process it first and that takes time. The creatine your body will use in the upcoming workout will come from the creatine phosphate stores already in the cells, not from the creatine you just ingested.
    think of how stupid the average person is and then realize that half of them are dumber than that
