Hi guys,
With my latest purchase of promass, I got a free 100g creatine sample. I had previously been against the stuff, but as it was free, i thought i'd give it a whirl.

My question is this: as its already Wed, i've already done bench and deads this week, so should i start it now, or wait till next week? have just started a bulk, btw if this makes any difference.

Start it anytime you want. What has doing bench and dead's already in the week got to do with it?

100g creatine won't do anything. If you're going to bother using the supplement at all, at least get a credible amount.

:withstupi

And don't bother loading it. Just take 5g a day.

Nah, i oredered some more, just never would have started it had it not been free. I guess product placement does work, huh?

Why do u think i shouldnt load it?

Because it's a waste. Do a search on creatine, and read the creatine sticky in the supplements forum for more info, it's been discussed more than once :)

Also remember to drink plenty of water ~5 litres a day.

The main arguement I have seen for not loading is that you will get to the same point, just takes longer. So does that mean I should lift less, I'll still get big, it will just take longer. My beleif the stuff is cheap, load. I don't do it religously, but I take a couple extra does, when I remember.

The issue with loading is muscle cell saturation. Without loading, it takes longer for muscle cells to become fully saturated with creatine. It's not all or none, mind you, but a gradual process. As reaver stated, whether you load or don't load, your muscles will become fully saturated at some point, it is just supposed to be a bit faster with a loading phase.
