I use BSN N.O Xplode as a pre workout. I am about to finish off my Purple K creatine capsules and am looking for a new creatine to try. I would always take the capsules right before I drink my PWO. I always see creatine monohydrate recommended which I believe only comes in powder form. Would it be ok to mix the creatine with the preworkout since its non-flavoured?

I do it all the time.
Or you could purchase some ErgoGenix ErgoPump which would kill two birds with one stone. It's a great pre-workout (pump) product that contains a full serving of creatine in each dose.

Yes you can certainly mix creatine mono into your PWO but make sure it's fully dissolved in water so that your body can properly absorb it. Like someone else stated, you can find many other PWO products that have a healthy serving or creatine mixed in already. Xtend is one for sure that's worth looking into.

Creatine can be mixed with just about anything. I would have to agree with Spaz that you should look for a PWO with creatine and save some cash. I would recommend K-Otic as an alternative to one with creatine because I got good energy as well as my Krealkalyn in it.If you not feeling the burn your not pushing hard enough.

I have been taking BSN NO xplode as a PWO drink for a while. I just recently ordered in Purpke K and was wondering if anyone had any issues mixing both together? Also, I've only heard those who mix to take 2 capsules before along with the PWO, but none afterwards. Isn't it reccommended to take 2 before and 2 after for optimum results?

Perfectly fine to mix the together. If you switch to a powder go ahead and throw a scoop in with your preform out or post workout. If you go back to kre-alkalyn take 2 per and 2 post.AI Sports Nutrition Dir. of Sales/Marketing

It would just slow down how fast the pwo hit your system but not by all that much. My current PWO in K-OTIC has caffeine+kre alk. Nothing really wrong with taking it pwo or anytime throughout the day.Team Beyond Fitness - http://facebook.com/beyondfitnessofficial

My preworkout (craze) apparently only has 1.5g of creatine...is this enough for my daily creatine intake or should I mix it with 3.5g of creatine? Or is it best to take separately?
Also wondering whether its ok to take creatine HCL on off days and creatine mono with pwo (as described above) on training days? Or is it best to stick to one or the other?
