Creatine and BCAA’s
Yes or no?

I’ve heard arguments for both.

Almost done cutting and about to go back to gaining muscle. Want to keep as much of my abs as I can.

Creatine is 100% proven to be beneficial. BCAAs are fine if you’re not getting in enough protein. If you want to get stronger and maintain a physique, supps are not going to be what makes the difference.

Keep the creatine. BCAAs should only be incorporated if you have issues hitting protein macro needs.

No flavoring. I mix with protein powder and water.

I can’t get creatine to mix with anything. What do you all mix it with?

How much creatine is safe per day? I need to read up on the advantages of using it.

re: Creatine and BCAA’s
10 grams per day is the normal suggested amount. You have to give it time to build up in your system. It does not trigger an acute response like caffeine does. The advantages are faster recovery post lift and better performance in the end. It is one of the few supplements scientifically proven to actually work. And as far as I know, it isn’t harmful.

re: Creatine and BCAA’s
Plenty of research online on creatine. Arguably the most researched supplement in the fitness industry and it flat out works if used consistently. The only recommendation you’ll see online is that you should drink plenty of water when using it as a supplement, but we should all be doing that anyway.
