    Powder is better than capsules.

    Because on the powder you get a 5 day creating loading phase so usually take it 3-4 times a day for first 5 days then take it as normal after that.

    does work though.

    just remember you can always get that extra rep lol

    if your on Facebook look up t-nutrition its store in Birkenhead market will beat any price even Internet prices.

    and Trevor and his staff are very very knowledgable about training and products.

    hope that's of some help.

    been few years since I trained full time. But if you need any tips give me a shout.

    my best mate Is qualified personal trainer aswel

    I've always found the powder to be the best, usually mix up a drink before and after workout. Gives you a good buzz during the workout and will allow you to train harder and longer, I've got sci-mx stuff right now pretty good value and works well. Hope this helps!

    Just to throw a dummy in. I don't rate the power. Never felt anything with it apart from a sore stomach. The capsules work a treat for me tho when I bother using it. I've stopped using that and I'm using amino acids now which are pretty good
    Go on to my protein or bodybuilding.com theres a fair amount of stuff on there to keep you right

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 3.2

    Year : 2003

    I used the loading, maintenance, week off pattern for a while some years ago - 20 or 30g per portion. All it gave me was aching muscles and that weird bulbous look to my biceps. Didn't give me any extra strength.

    However recently in my 40s I have started using a small amount on training days, just a few grams in my protein shakes, 5 or 6 in total. I don't cycle on or off as I'm not loading and only using a small amount and it may just be a placebo but it seems to help with muscle maintenance and workout recovery, which is what I am interested in at almost 43 years of age, maintaining rather than increasing. I never get soreness, aches or cramps and I'm lifting decent weights I think.

    Vehicle : Audi Q7

    Some people get better results with loading, others don't, i've tried both several times over the years and I've not noticed much difference, so try both and then do what you feel gives you better results, and if you can try and get Creapure, most reputable supplement brands/companies will sell it as it's the purest and best form of creatine you can buy.. I now use TheProteinworks, which is a fairly new company that's owned & run buy 3 ex-directors of Myprotein, (you can even make up your own protein formula ) you don't need any more than 5g a day, some split that into 2 dosages of 2.5g at a time, if you choose to load then take 5g 4 times a day.. The purpose of loading is to saturate the body with creatine. There are two ways to "load" your body, 1) fast loading: over 5 days take 4 servings of 5g a day. Then there's "slow loading": which is simply using creapure/creatine without a week of fast loading, so you simply take 5g a day for 30 days, have a week off then 5g a day maintenance thereafter.. A lot of people take creatine/creapure for no more than 5 weeks at a time, as the body may stop producing or slow down its own creatine..

    Happy Training
