Creatine loading is basically increasing the level of creatine in body. Our body produces 1 gm of creatine which is not sufficient to meet the overall creatine need. So, to increase that, one has to look for a creatine supplement. Loading phase saturate the muscles with increased creatine level.
There are basically two methods of consuming creatine
Method 1: The Creatine loading dosage (is 20gm of creatine per day for 5 days only) to be taken at intervals (5gm each 4 times a day) and then maintenance phase (3-5 gm per day) is required to fill the gaps, which begins after loading phase i. e. from 6th day.
Method 2: Start taking 3-5 gm Creatine from Day 1.
I have many clients who consumes or had consumed creatine at some point of time. What they experienced was, creatine loading was not making much of a difference and it was equivalent to the maintenance phase (3-5gm of creatine per day) .
Some people like to go with the Loading phase and some do not.
But, in my opinion, I would like to share my pictures with effect of creatine over different periods of time. I always get superb results in every attempt of Creatine loading. It depends on person and different body types whether creatine loading is necessary or not.
What I personally feel is creatine loading does make a difference as you can see in picture attached. But after 5 days of loading, no need to take more than 5 gms daily.
