    5g Of Creatine, How To Measure

    Right, does anybody know how much 5g of creatine is in like table spoons or anything. I havent really got any good scales and wanted to be bang on rather than just guessing.

    Help appreciated guys. Much Love

    Instructions are usually on the label, for those without a scoop.

    Hi,

    Just to confirm 1 level teaspoon is approx 5g of creatine monohydrate.

    The instructions on the packet are to use our plastic scoops.

    Right you are, thank you captain. I'll be ordering some more stuff off you at the end of the month.

    You can do, but it's not necessary. Take 5g per day for 30 days post-training with some carbohydrates.

    Agree.

    7 days @ 20g = saturation point

    28 days @ 5g = saturation point

    Depends whether you deem loading important or not. Be aware that some people get a dose of the Brad Pitts when taking large doses
    There's nothing wrong with being incompetent ... it just means you don't have to do as much.
