The creatine I’m buying has 200 servings of 1 teaspoon. It says for people over 220lb ( me ) take a total of 5 teaspoons daily for the 7 day loading phase. I heard people say loading phases are useless and just take a couple servings a day.
Should I follow the loading phase or what? Also after the 7 day phase if that’s what I should do, do I just take a couple servings daily?[/quote]
I did a couple searches earlier on T-Nation. The general consensus is to just take 5g a day whenever the fuck you want to take it, to load or not to load is up to you but most find it unnecessary.
with that being said, I think every one is a bunch of cunts.
there is definitely an optimal way to take this supplement, there is always an optimal way to take anything but for some reason everyone wants to shrug this one thing off like you’re some kind of newb if you have questions about it because everyone over 150lbs on this forum is just so damn smart[/quote]
Idea with 5g is that you can take it long term. With loading and higher dose its advised to have a 4week break every 12weeks or whatever it was…
Whether you load or not, you dont have to cycle off creatine. Theres virtually no point.
If im not mistaken they used to advise cycling off creatine for safety/health reasons, but i would hope that by now everyone knows creatine is as safe as whey.
