    Question creatine + dehydration?

    i am a track and football athlete. i have problems with pulled hamstrings and groins a lot and the problems usually show up about 3 days into camp during summer 2 a days. it seems to be directly related to water loss during the hot august days. i am always weary about creatine b/c of the dehydration but i'm in my off season and would like to go on it. (i've had good results in the past) how long before season should i get off to make sure i have rehydrated my body properly.

    Creatine volumises the cells by dragging more water into them ... there fore you will require more water to mantain hydration....

    Creatine = drink,drink,drink!!

    You need to drink a lot of water whilst using creatine otherwise cramping can occurr
