Cheers

Start off with 2-4 teaspoons of creatine a day for the first few weeks and then after that you can drop it back to 1-2 teaspoons as a maintenance dose mate.

With the protein you always want to take it straight after your workout as this is when your muscles will really soak it up. You can have a shake on your rest days from the gym (just depends on whether you think you can afford to use it 7 days a week or just on your training days). For the creatine you could do one dose through the day mixed with juice or water, then the other dose you can just throw into your protein shake. Easy as that !!

@MF

thanks for the info that's just exactly the info i needed i'l kick it up from Monday . Will keep around 4 doses upto 7-8 days and around 5-7gms per day after that . And for Protein will do take 1 post workout and maybe throw in another dose in evening and stick with 1 on Non Workout Days .

Yep, looking forward to the video as well. We all have shitty sessions, could have been just because you didn't have enough fuel in you mate.

Don't ask England won again :(
And well i love cooking , i was in Canada for over one year for my Pilot's training and it was very difficult to get good vegan food outside and well it was expensive as well so eventually i learnt cooking and now i always try and make my meals whenever i can .

what are you captfit a vegan or vegetarian? are the traditional foods/ways of cooking where you come from pretty healthy?
