I noticed on the ethyl ester creatine OP described it says “no loading phase required.”
On the Biotest creatine monohydrate they do recommend a five day loading.
So whats the deal with loading?
Loading is crap, you dont have to do it[/quote]
I disagree, I find that I get better use out of my monohydrate if I load and reload every 4 weeks or so. Just 4 days at 5 grams higher than maintenance which is 10g a day postworkout.
Imo of course, and everybody is different. I find that if I don’t load at all that I feel like I’m taking nothing. With mono I usually notice that I am less sore, muscle is fuller with water, and strength or number of reps increases by a few.
