Advice on creatine

Hi All,
 
I have recently purchased kre-alkalyn tablets from myprotein and wondered if anyone else has experience with them? This is my first time using creatine so curious how people found it.

    Kre-Alkalyn interests me but I've not tried it. Let us know how it goes.

    I have not tried it or ever heard of it. Lets see how it works on your body. I am interested. My whole life I have gone with protein powder type supplements, but am curious to how pills would work.

    Was there any particular reason you've chosen this ahead of mono/CEE?

    Thought Pills just for conveniance as already take a couple protein shakes a day so pills easier to handle.
     
    Was looking at monohydrates but liked the reviews of the pill format so hoping ill see progress in a few weeks times.

    You can get monohydrate in pill form too. Moreover, creatine in pill form is generally more expensive, and less convenient (with powder you can just mix it in with your post-workout shake). But whatever floats ya boat.

    Its going to be more trial and error as first time I have used creatine so may try mono pills/shake after these run out and see if there are any difference. Main thing is seeing what gives me most gains!

    Fair enough but most people would tend to start off with mono seeing as it's so much cheaper and for 99% of people it's exactly the same in terms of effectiveness. Speaking of which, btw, don't hold your breathe for 'gains' per se with creatine. Gains will come from your diet. The effect of creatine is to increase APT levels in order to delay muscle fatigue, in other words it might give you a mild strength increase in the gym, or it might not. Think of it as an 'every little helps' thing but remember your diet is what will determine your gains.

    Thanks. My diet is good at the moment and I have combined that with protein shakes to make good progress in the last year. Was just looking for something to give me that extra push to go to the next level. I do get though consistent diet is key to make gains. May well be I need to increase my portion sizes again or fit another small meal in (which im trialling at the monent for 2 months) and see if gain is made from there

    I have heard good things about the tabs, although good old mono powder has been doing the business for me for years and years.

    I much prefer powder in my post workout shakes if using a basic creatine.
