A while ago I experimented with an alternative method of creatine supplementation.
This was the short-term loading method:
- 3 days load (approx. 20 grams a day)
- 3 days off
I have commented on my results on the forum and in ‘Total Anabolism 2.0‘, but I thought I would make a little post as I’m still getting questions about it.
So, here is the criteria by which I was judging this technique:
- Muscle Cell Volume
- Muscle Energy
Drum roll please, the results were……….
No difference. I didn’t notice any difference in any of the above. In fairness, it also wasn’t any less effective than the regular method either.
Therefore I reverted back to the original technique purely because of its convenience.
I hope that this doesn’t discourage you from trying it out, it may produce different results for others.
Either way, creatine supplementation with creatine monohydrate is definitely recommended.
