are you dieting? dont really need it any other time. use it after workout and after cardio as priority. If dieting hard, you can also use it inbetween meals to fight catabolism.

Glutamine is good for any time of the year but it's especially helpfull while cutting. In any case, use it after your workout and before sleep. 5-10 grams each time.

I remember someone saying it's a waste at bedtime?

Ah I remember what they said, because they were also taking caseine protein at bedtime which already had glutamine. What about the morning?

-First thing in the morning.
-Pre-cardio, Post-Cardio.
-Post-workout.
-Before Bed.

Preferably on an empty stomach, except post-c and post-w of course.

Supposedly your not supposed to use it with creatine because they are transported in your blood using the same stuff. I use glutamine only when I'm on a cutting cycle I don't really feel I need it any other time.

i think thats been proven incorrect, each uses specific transportation into muscles

Could use it Pre/During/Post

Go with optimum as they are the best deal for the $$.

During workout? How would you suggest I take it?

5-10g mixed in a small protein drink that you would sip during workout.
