I have been doing the creatine for about 6 weeks or so. Is there any need to cycle on and off of creatine or do I just keep jamming the stuff down my gullett? Thanks.

Patrick-
I love the subject line...maybe I can get that for my Capoeira name...it would be great in portuguese!

My understanding is that one reaches a saturation point with the muscles after a few weeks and cycling off for a week every few weeks (say three) is perhaps a good idea.

Would this be adviseable to the non-supplemented exercisers as well? (Taking a week off after months and months of continuous training).

Or is it unnecessary if a good rest schedule is followed in the microscopic sense? (3 on 1 off etc)

I have been feeling exhausted at the end of every training session for the past two weeks, hitting the bed like a sack of potatoes, and getting more sleep than what I usually get. (involuntarily)...

Alexander-

IMO it is always better to take more time off. If you are not feeling fresh and energized...back off and come back at things when you do feel good.
