The scoops are only 5g.

I tend to have one in the morning in cereal/coffee/juice, and then one with the shake post-workout.

I only ever have 3 a day if I've not eaten well that day so have another shake, in which case I'll just add a scoop to it as I always do.

I've certainly never been worried about taking too much at least. Probably should be more worried about the pack of doughnuts I eat each day

10g is plenty per day. Studies showed that there was no real benefit to more than that per day. This is what got me in to the trouble I did. This is how the problems arise. No one ever thinks of Creatine as being dangerous, but too much is not a good thing.

kbalaz is very right, Over use of creatine can end up buggering your kidneys, A client of mine has severe kidney pains due to overuse, He explained it like someone digging in nails into his sides, Not something you want to deal with.

*EDIT*

Just as a thought you might want to give kre-alkalyn a go or at least research it, You only need to take it on the day you train and not that much.

I switched to kre-alakalyn as standard creatine was giving me problems, Side pains etc... even though I was under dosing, Switched and I've not had any problems, Just food for thought

Aye Creatine isn't very soluble and is hard to break down (even though it's fine powder), there is a patented version which I can't remember the name of which is supposed to be easier to digest.

I just take one scoop of it a day after training. I don't listen to the instructions on them too much, the Arnold series say 1 before training, or if you're an intense trainer (guessing thats like an athlete) take one before and one after? Some other brands are like take this many and then ween off them, don't know what thats about to be honest?

It would be cool, would like to train with you all and learn some more. Nothing beats having a good training partner.

That would be kre-alkalyn, I've been taking it since 2009, Great stuff

Two month ago so about a month into dieting if I remember right. I'll put my latest up later (Can't remember my Dropbox login!)

This isn't supposed to be a look how good of a shape I'm in, it's just a monthly record to see where I came from.

Wish I had a pic from December before I started HIIT, I looked pregnant because I'd stopped all training!

I must post up a photo or two of myself aswell, since I found a few of me back in 2010 when I was pretty fat.

95kg in bodyweight at the time, I'm around 79kg now.

Do it. I wasn't comfortable putting mine up but unlike the bodybuilding.com forum I know people won't give me lol. I weighed 90kg last time I checked but I think I'll be more now.

Cardio should be done on a daily basis, It helps with the repairing of muscle fibers, I wont go into the science just know that it works.

And all these myths about cardio burning muscle is complete BS, For cardio to burn muscle you need to be doing at least 4 hours a day on an empty stomach with a really crap diet.

I do 40 minutes every day and have done for the past 5 years and not to blow my own trumpet but I'm spartanic compared to a lot of the people I know who have lifted for years and do nearly zero amount of cardio.

Cardio helps in so many ways, It's very very under utilized.
