    Loading is not needed. All it does is give you the shits, and makes you use up the powder quicker. Stick to between 5-10 mg a day.

    Yes creatine does work. I agree with jack, loading is not needed.

    I heard loading was important. I also heard it was possible to load over the course of a 28 days with 3 grams a day. I think loading the 20 grams a day for 7 days just does it faster.

    There are others who know more than me though. Most of my creatine info is around 3-5 years old.

    I liked it. Starting a new cycle here soon. Loading phase is NOT needed but if u feel the need then go for it.

    Yeah, if we're on the same page, you've been into some theory that didn't pan out. Loading isn't recommended, anymore.

    5g (not mg).

    Don't do 10. It's superfluous. You'll saturate your cells with that much.
