You can buy tons of micronized creatine for 15-20 for 150 days worth. Dude Im pretty sure your not drinking enough water, 6-7 cups? I chug down 10-12L's a day when on or off creatine. I think is recommended amount 10L's so your hydrated all day. Plus your body will love you for drinking all the water.. Lots of peeing tho ya.
I do the usual 6 week cycle, the strength gains are awesome and can really help you through a plateau. Take dextrose in your post workout shake if you don't already
They're HUGE cups though. I don't know how much in liters but each cup is almost half of my pur water jug.
I'm not really on any sort of cycle, should I be? I take 1 pill in the morning, one at night, and I don't take it on my rest day.
I'm loving the water weight though. I'm a really skinny, fast metabolism hard-gainer type so I've always been bony and lanky, but now I look normal. My muscles have some nice definition but I don't look fat at all.
And what's dextrose? Post workout shake for me is 3 scoops of whey protein.
