    Unhappy How to use creatine powder ?

    i bought:

    Universal Nutrition Micronized Creatine Monohydrate (made in germany ) ( i heard made in germany creatine is best in the world?)

    How to use it ? Someone sayd to me to use it like this :

    First week , 3 days , in morning , before and after the gym (it means 3 days only those 3 days when i go to the gym? )
    The second week: 2 days before and after gym (i go to the gym 3 times a week , so i just use it 2 times in a week , so one gym day without creatine?)

    Anyone got more suggestions ? I know its best to drink it with grape juice cuz it has something i dont know that word in english ;s

    Can i drink protein shake and after 10 mins i take creatine with grape juice ? wont that mess up in my stomatch protein and creatine will mix and it will be worthless stuff in my stomatch?

    BTW im not real body building , just lifting weights for few months.

    I recommend you do your own research on it before you supplement with it You should never take something you don't know anything about.

    Ingredients for Growth:
    -gravity
    -food


    Weight lifting is a competitive sport between you and gravity. In the end, gravity always seems to win.

    Creatine use.

    Standard Creatine use:

    Phase 1 - 1 teaspoon mixed with a beverage of your choice 4 TIMES A DAY! Do this for 5 days in a row.

    Phase 2 - 1 teaspoon mixed with a beverage of your choice 1 TIME A DAY! Do this EVERY day for 11 weeks

    Phase 3 - TAKE ZERO CREATINE FOR 4 WEEKS.


    THEN REPEAT THIS CYCLE IF IT YOU SEE WORTHWHILE GAINS.


    Hope this helped J.

    Fixed.

    If you want to load, you can basically ingest 20 g of creatine for 6 days. Then you will have saturated the muscles.

    Otherwise, you can also reach the saturation point simply by dosing at 2-5 grams/day for about a month.

    Once saturation is reached, just take 5 grams per day 5-7 days per week to maintain saturation.

    Everyone i know that doesn't cycle says they wish they did.


    And yes that is a perfectly fine cycle. Have you read the recommended cycle on the side of the tub? It's usually perfect.

    I had a horrible experience with my first creatine load on Thursday . I mixed 5grammes of C with 500ml of water on an empty stomach (but for a bowl of cereal )..

    Thanks to J9S3, i'll be using it more wisely..

    Should I/Can I use it with whey? e.g. 5gms of whey + 1 teaspoon of creatine..??

    This thread is 2 years old TrimmingOzzie!

    Since then there's been a lot of research showing loading isn't necessary. I feel it is a matter of personal preference, whichever works best for you, stick to it, just like training.

    Additionally, if you are prone to the side effects. i.e. headaches and bloating. Just avoid it. Also remember that Creatine turns into a waste product called Creatinine after a approx 10 minutes when mixed with water. Therefore use it immediately. If you experience sharp headaches your Creatine itself could also have been subjected to moisture in the air affecting it in the container.

    Taking it with your whey is fine. As long as you don't mind it being bitty cause i doubt it will mix well.
