    You might go up a few pounds initially if you respond well, then you are set.

    Don't let that bother you.
    The most important aspect of weight training; whether for the athlete, bodybuilder, or average person is to better ones health and ability without injury. - Bill Pearl

    If you don't do the loading phase and stick to 5g a day you won't see water weight gain if your drinking enough water. I recommend creatine on a cut all the time, get dat chit asap man

    it can make difference up to 3-4 lbs. you need to reach full saturation in muscles before your weight stabilizes, it can take up to a week

    It will take 3 or so weeks to saturate, then use roughly 3g on workout days. Take whenever you want as once saturation is reached timing is irrelevant. Buy whatever bulk creatine this website has for cheap. Creapure on the label is a bonus (highest quality). 100% monohydrate is just as good.

    I had the same question for a while. After researching quite a bit I decided to try it out.
    Bought Allmax Monohydrate (Unflavoured) around a week ago. It is 400g, so 80 servings @ 5grams a servings.

    I've just been sipping it in the morning at work, mixed with my BCAA powder. I hit the gym on my 6th day of taking it, and I did notice an increase in my strength. Most people are saying it takes at least a week to feel the benefits so maybe I just pushed harder due to the placebo effect? haha

    thought id bump this thread instead of start a new one.....

    probably a dumb question, but on my cut, is ok to lower my protein and up my carbs, or vice versa, every few days, just stay within my cals? I know it sounds bland, but I have to stick to a written plan, or else Ill go overboard, just my preference.

    Yes, you can adjust your protein and carbs to offset a bit on lift days vs rest days if that's your preference.

    I think I'm stating the obvious...just don't dip your protein low enough to where you're not recovering.

    i figured it'd it be ok. As far as protein, Im at 1.2g per lb/bw, whats the safest I can go? Im usually a very high protein type guy, but Im giving the advice of others a chance before i decide if a moderate amount is for me

    Honestly I only hit 1g/lb, anything over isn't "necessary" and you'll be well above the range where you need to worry if you're getting enough.

    another thing, how long does it take to figure out your maintenance calories? Im tired of the forumlas, they dont work accurately for me because my lifestyle is different from most. Im gonna eat a certain amount of cals, seems like that would be the most accurate. for me anyways.
