***Bought some Vit C tabs today to combat this cold I can feel emerging.

Will be taking 4g/day

I see some people also take it post workout. If anyone reads this.. what is a good amount to take, and should I just have it with my PWO shake?
cheers

Hi CatchAFire!!

Good luck with your goals!! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

It seems that you already had very successful bulks in the past so I'm pretty sure you'll end up meeting your goals in no time!! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Regarding your question on Vit. C, most people here take 3 grams of Vitamin C, spread out during the day. You could for instance take 1g for breakfast, 1g post-workout, and 1g before bed.

Are you taking along any other supplements (creatine, multi-vitamin...)?
