what kind of insulin ?
im looking to bridge with insulin and creatine, taking 6iu when i wake up then 6 immediately after workout (late afternoon) now my question is which kind would be the best bet for gaining muscle size , humalog or humulin R ?

Humalog in every circumstance I would say... Same potency and less active time... Meaning less chance of going hyopgylcemic.

How late??? Humalog is active for four hours. Stay clear of humulin R. Peace

is that a good way to run it 6iu in the morning and 6iu post training ? the reason y i was leaning towards humulin R is because it is active for 4hrs which means my body will be anabolic for a longer period of time im not too worried about hypo because last time i ran slin i had glyco pills with me everywhere i went so not too worried bout that the only thing im worrried about is becoming diabetic which is why the humulin R is the max i would go !!! so what you guys think about the cycle and anymore opinions ?

Humalin R is active for much longer than 4 hours.
You don't want the "anabolic " effect of insulin any longer than you have to, since insulin is just as anabolic to adipocytes during its activity. Read through some of the more recent insulin posts. The main period of time you want insulin's effects are about a 2hr window beginning immediately post w/o. Humalog is the shortest acting insulin, so is therefore the most potent (more IU's of activity in less time).

If you shoot 10IU of an insulin that is active for 4 hrs, then the potency is 2.5IU/hr
