Hi, I just decided to start taking creatine, but have been wondering if not for a while now, but today i just bought some and its called, "six star Body Fuel Advanced Creatine" and I'm not sure how to take it, like how much powder, and with how much water. The container says, "Mix 1 serving (1 rounded scoop) of six star Advanced Creatine with 175 mL of cold water and consume immediately. For best results, use for 8 weeks..."
Saying that, i have went on the internet, to many websites trying to read up on many different ways and types of taking it trying to find the best. I have read lots about the "Loading" phase, and "Maintenance" phase, but i don't really understand them, because they all say, to take amounts of the powder in grams, and i dont know how to measure grams. I also don't know when i should take it, because each site said different times, some said right before the workout, some said right after it, and some said spread it out during the day.
I don't know when i should take it or how much, and today i took it like 5 minutes before i began my workout and i did the directions it said on the bottle, but there was way to much powder for the amount of water (from my point of view.)
I was just wondering if any of you guys could tell me how much you take (in mL or cups) and with how much water, and what time related to your workout.
