Supps For Max Hypertrophy

I am looking to find out what people’s opinions are on the other supplements I am taking, including ideas on what I could vary.

Current Supplements:
Low-Carb Grow!
PWO Surge
Apex Max Volumize - Pills (Creatine,Taurine,L-Glutamine)…

Should I go with an unflavored creatine monohydrate powder as a mix-in for during and PWO drinks? I only ask because with the creatine pills you are to take ten daily; 3 morning, 4 pre workout; and 3 before you sleep. What I have learned so far about creatine is that it is best for during and post workout. How much of a difference; if any will it make to go from pills throughout the day to powder at exact times? Thank you all for your time as always.

It is unclear what the number of grams that you are getting through the pills, but you may want to take a look at David Barr’s article, The Naked Truth, Dangerous Creatine.

As I’ve done before, I’m going to have to reinforce this suggestion. EVERYONE that has questions about creatine should read this article because it may not only keep some cash in the safe, but also keep you safe.

Look at the total amount of BCAAs in your PWO drink. Charles Poliquin had guys taking 40 grams of BCAAs per workout. He had them take pills between sets. He says they gained 5-10 lbs in a month.
