Re: Creatine FAQ

any consensus or guidance on creatine shelf life? the packaging for the monohydrate I use states 'after opening, discard after 3 months'. if i buy more in bulk after using this container, it would be good to know if there is any reduction in effectiveness. personally, i'm inclined to ignore the pac...

Re: Creatine FAQ

How should I take it? ...or put a serving size in your mouth (usually 2-5g) and wash it down with your shake. I thought we are supposed to dissolve it first before consuming? If you can manage to get monohydrate to dissolve then please tell us, that's achieving the impossible. Something like less t...

Re:

I wish I was individually wealthy so I could open a no holds barred gym! Wouldn't that be great? Gyms that are toned down have become a common theme these days. I'm constantly hearing ads for planet fitness, a gym for the average Joe, no "roided up meatheads." Very irritating that it takes making a...

Re: moderator question: where is ironmaiden708

I think just as I joined, I saw a couple of (great) posts by you then none at all. Do you mind me asking where you went? It's just that there's many posts by you which have helped a lot of people out, just wondered what happened to you! I went to UB and was in the exercise science program. I'll be ...

Re: Whey + Creatine + Caffeine = Performance

I forgot about that the fact of it being a precursor to carnosine and that you should get enough from protein. But the metabolism of whole protein sources vs beta alanine will be very different, so i don't think taking protein supplementation will do much if trying to use to the same effect as beta ...

Re: Whey + Creatine + Caffeine = Performance

Beta-alanine is a buffer, these studies demonstrate that is in fact true. It's a supplement you take preworkout. What does that have to do with protein intake?

Re: Creatine

Substantial evidence doesn't exist for that to be conclusive. Continue to drink your tea as you normally would.

Re: Creatine

So I've decided to start using Creatine to see what kind of results I can get out of it (I've never used it before). I have a couple of questions for any of you who either use creatine or are more knowledgeable on the subject. A little bit better endurance, more creatine = more energy. 1) It is deb...

Beta alanine works, no doubt about that.
