Post another couple questions....

number one, could you use sweet n' low, or equal as a effective dilivery for creatine? i think both the main ingrediants are dextrose. im havin a hard time finding dextrose
secondly, how do you draw the line between 'straining' and going to failure? i mean, i hear of people hurting themselves because they refuse to be spotted, but how to you know when your are crossing the line between giving 100% and hurting yourself? is it just somthing you 'feel'? im having a hard time with the concept as you can tell.
thanks alot,

People that refuse to be spotted hurt themselves because they are morons and think they can go to failure on bench press, squat, etc without someone being there just in case. It is certain exercises like that where going to failure without a spotter is just purely idiotic. Its not your muscles that these people are most likely being injured, its an injury from the bar w/good amount of weight falling on your chest, or you collapsing under a good deal of weight you're trying to squat. Now do you need a spotter doing ******** curls? Not likely, since when you reach failure you can drop the bar onto the safety catch. It all depends on what exercise you're doing and what makes sense...Good luck.

I believe that you can get dextrose from most supplement sites or GNC. Dextrose is also the primary sugar in SweetTarts. I dont think Sweet n Low or Equal contain any sugars.

No, sweet and low, and the like are not effective creatine delivery methods. They don't cause a high insulin spike, which is why the dextrose is effective. Look in your local phone book for a store that sells beer making, or wine making, supplies. They will sell dextrose there, it is also just called corn sugar. If you don't have one of those stores locally, then ask at a health food may be a bit more expensive there. If all else fails, you can pick up a product called carbohydrate fuel, I believe, by twinlabs. It costs more this way, but I think it comes with flavoring already added.
