I have never used PlasmaVol, but I have been on and off creatine for years. I have both loaded when starting and just used it at 5g post-work out and saw no difference. IF this is your first time, it won't hurt to load / saturate it. Next time just go right into it. As with most things regarding the iron game, its a matter of finding what works best for you.
I basically feel the same as AngerOut. The loading phase (saturation phase) is something that I have done before, I have also started with just 5 grams a day at other times and I have not noticed a difference. So basically, to save you some money, I would just skip the loading phase and just go ahead with your regular daily dose.
I have loaded and I have no loaded and I find that I get cmoparable gains, but a week or so later if I do not load. So Im done with the loading phase, I just take the normal dose for 6 weeks, or whatever length Im on it.
Thanks for the advice. I think i'm all set now. This forum and the store have been very usefull in helping me find a good product and the do's and don't of the supplements I was curious about. There is still a lot to learn, but I beleive I can accomplish that here. Thanks again.
