View Full Version : creatine alongside a CKD?

06-03-2001, 11:35 AM
i see from the pole taken that some of you guys have been on the ckd and i was wondering how it worked out for you? i am about to start one myself and i wondered if there was anything to watch out for or tips you might have?

also did any of you take creatine monohydrate when you were on it?
i just bought some but i read that you need to take it with a drink high in glucose to transport the creatine to your muscles and a glucose drink would be high in carbs:mad: is there any way to load up with creatine on the sat/sun when you load up on carbs to last the whole week???

load creatine on the days you carb up. It is just as effective as cell tech. Then take some on training days. I take 2 g preworkout and 3-4g post workout on non carb days w/ my protein and flax shake.

You can still take creatine after your workouts,if you take 300mg of alpha lipoic acid with it.

I'm with alpha on this one although I"ve never taken that much ala
I take 3 grams of creatine and 100 mgs of alpha lipoic acid right before my workout and I think it works quite well
