    Creatine...

    Ok I've been reading alot about Creatine at this Message Board and from the sounds of it I should go with CellTec right? I'd be able to go to a local GNC store and buy this right there? thanx

    bingo.. don't waste cash on cell-tech... buy some micronized (made to instantly mix in water) creatine monohydrate. If you want a good creatine transport (which is all cell-tech is IMO), just take your creatine with 200mg of ALA and 30-50 grams of dextrose 1 hour before workout and same immedately after workout, much cheaper.

    I do my 30 grams of dextrose (carbs) with my creatine immediately after the workout and then about 15 mins later eat a big meal (dinner) with 30-35 grams of protein.

    I just bought 100% Pure Creatine Monohydrate. I was reading a thing that came with it and it was saying to take 5g of creatine 4-5 days when loading and then after the 5 days take 5g per day. Should I do that or just take creatine before I workout and after?

    first 4 or 5 days take 10 grams a day....then 5 grams a day as maintenance. Take the creatine post workout......

    How long should I wait after I take creatine to work out? and how much water should I be drinking? I usually drink 2 liters of water a day, sometimes 4 liters. Should that be good enough?

    Take the creatine after your workout. I drink up to a gallon of water a day. Drink a lot of H20...it'll make the creatine a little easier on your kidneys.....
