Re: Creatine

One place near me has EAS Creatine for $20.

Is this worth it?

The lad at the shop recommended Purple K or Con-Cret as with those, they can be taken by themselves and don't need juice (like the EAS one as per recommendation)

What you think?

I know Con-Cret is good.

You do not 'need' juice. Only studies to ever get an increased uptake secondary to insulin response used a lot, as in at least 75 grams, of dextrose.



Creatine ethyl ester is crap, btw. Converts primarily to creatinine, not creatine.

Re: Creatine

Results by At Large Nutrition. Which also has two other ingredients, Beta alanine and HMB. I use this daily and will absolutely swear by it. Think they also sell creatine alone, Creatine 500 looks like.

Re: Creatine

Definitely go with creatine monohydrate, there is a lot more research backing the the basic powder. 5g daily post workout (or before sleep) and even on non-training days. Creatine is really only to optimize the ATP-CP system, which is to say only improve performance with 30 second duration or less.

the beta-alanine is at 3.5g/serving, that's below the effective dose, but their logic is right.

There is actually a pre-workout that has a good blend of most of what has been discussed throughout this thread. Including, Creatine Monohydrate at 5g, Beta Alanine, Proprietary Blend of Branched Chain Amino Acids, Sodium Citrate(buffer of lactic acid), & Glutamine.

I have tried it and I would recommend it to anyone interested(worked very well with crossfit training). It is called FAST FUEL by RSP Nutrition.

They also have another product with a unique member of the creatine family called Tri-Creatine citrate. It is a more soluble form, making it as effective as traditional forms of creatine at lower dosages. The advantage here would be gaining the muscle building reward of creatine without the cramping, loading, bloating that sometimes comes along with using Creatine.
