How many of you take creatine? I don't take any supplements, but was thinkin about purchasing a creatine monohydrate to a.ssist me with my bulk now that I've cut down to under 200 lbs. I was looking into the Beast Creature powder that Hodgetwins always rave about > Creatine - Photo posted in The BX Gym - Health, Exercise, and Nutrition | Sign in and leave a comment below!

It will make you a little bit stronger, and appear to add a little bit of mass due to the added water into muscles. It allows you to do a few more reps of exercises. About a month before shows fitness models stop taking creatine to look more ripped.

I'd definitely recommend getting creapure creatine.

Man, if you're going to take a creatine, take a Kre-Alkalyn creatine... It's creatine, but it's pH buffered... means, once it enters your system--your system fully absorbs it and you reap the benefits of it close to 100% of the time..

Whereas, regular creatine mono, it had the tendency to turn into the by-product creatinine--that is not what you want. It was said to take creatine with like something acidic like juice or gatorade, but F all that sh*t, take the Kre-Alkalyn... no load phase, no cycle no none of that sh*t.. (but I still do--for sh*ts and giggles..)

Hands down the best supplement for anyone body building or just trying to gain strength.

Hodge Twins was on point with Beast. Been through a couple of bottles already and wouldn't switch to anything else. I've used creatine in the past I dont remember the names but mostly powders but I've been really satisfied with Beast.

^all that sh*t you hear about kre-alkalyn is a crock of sh*t. None of it has been proven to be true. Regular old creatine mono is the best way to go. Also, that whole needing to take creatine with a drink with a high GI isnt necessary.

Creatine supplements pretty much come from one of two places - creapure being one the companies that supply creatine. Just go for that.

Just a heads up tho - creatine isn't a mass builder. Water retention is a "side effect." Creatine sups will increase energy levels that will help you with recovery and allow you to power through your workouts a bit longer. With that said, whether on a cut or bulk, creatine should be a staple in your supplement stack. I would even go so far as to say its more beneficial to supplement with creatine than protein shakes.

Is the load phase necessary? I read that all you need is 5g of creatine daily and that it doesn't matter what time if day you take it. I was planning on taking it post workout on lifting days and in the morning on off days/cardio days.

there's conflicting literature regarding loading creatine. unnecessary in my opinion. i also take it post workout and in the mornings.

Not necessary. Your body can only absorb so much, as with any other vitamin, mineral, supplement, etc. You'll just be pissing out the extra amount and going through your creatine bottle quicker. I read somewhere that 5g/day is a good amount.

Have fun paying $1 per serving of fu*king creatine.

OP do yourself a favor and just get some bulk CrM powder. You can usually find a kg for like 20 bucks. Take 5-10g a day /end

Do you people take creatine with grape juice? My friend told me he does because supposedly the sugar creates an insulin spike that rushes the creatine to your muscles faster or some sh*t. And also that its good to take with carbs. I was planning on just taking it with water.

Loading is used to saturate the cells quicker. It is unnecessary.

The small insulin spike only occurs during the loading phase (if you choose to take one). After the first few days there no more effects.

Creatine timing and/or intake with nutrients is negligible. Just take your daily amount whenever you want.

I don't know about the sugar part but with carbs yes. But you can take it with water or juice at anytime of the day it doesn't matter if its around workout time or not because it will take hrs for creatine to do its thing. Just take it daily 5 grams, but i'd say 10 if your 200 & over.

No need for the grape juice. Just take it during your post workout (preferably 30-45 minutes after a workout) when your body is trying to replenish glycogen stores.
