Question: How Much Creatine Should I Take?

My husband and I are just becoming familiar with creatine, but we need some answers. I am a 30 year old female 5'5" 111 lbs and would like to put on about 10 lbs . Should I take creatine or not and, if so, how much and when?

My husband is 5'7" and 155 lbs. When and how much creatine should he take? He has started a workout program and would like to know if creatine would help him to build bulk or muscle mass? Any information would be appreciated.


Answer #1

Most people will start off taking about 15-20 grams of creatine for the first week, taking half 30-45 minutes before the workout and the other half after. After the first week, drop your dosage to 5 grams a day. If you are doing long workouts, take some of the creatine 30-45 minutes before, take more part way through the workout, and the rest of the dosage at the end. This will greatly help your endurance after you have become fatigued mid workout.
