Supplements

Someone suggested this thread. Good idea.

Question about creatine: I've read conflicting opinions on whether a loading cycle is necessary. Thoughts?

For creatine monohydrate, it is recommended to take in 20g (4 servings) for about 3-5 days during the loading process and 5g maintainance thereafter. If you do choose to use creatine, cycle it 8 weeks on and 2 weeks off.

For creatine ethyl esther, there is no need for the loading phase apparently.

Either way, I don't think loading phases are all that neccessary. Even for creatine monohydrate.

I used monohydrate and I did load it . . . I found it helpful, but I dunno you might be able to do without, I did just to be on the safe side (safe as in making sure I had enough in my body to make it effective)

Creatine Monohydrate didn't work that well for me... I tended to store waterweight in my midsection

Eric, that is not bad.... I haven't used creatine for almost a year now. I just stick to a good whey protein powder for now. I'll start to increase supplementation w/ bcaa's, glutamine, zma, and a thermogenic when i start cutting.

yup.

it's a waste of money using anything else while you're just starting.

Yeah, Lots of clean food, whey protein, and creatine.

Those two are both relatively cheap.

the only thing i've used with noticeable effect is tribulus. i think i might be a creatine non-responder. well, CEE was good, i did get stronger.

Paul, actually I am not sure if they ship to Canada... they have a flat rate shipping for orders w/i the continental US.

They are really nice though, so they may be able to do it for you!

They are located in Florida.
