I use creatine and L-glutamine for my workouts, typically taking the L-glutamine about an hour before my workout, and creatine immediately after. (I don't take them together because I understand they compete for receptors, limiting absorption).
I also try to keep the load up by taking creatine first thing in the morning, and L-glutamine last thing before bed regardless of whether I worked out that day.
My question is: do I need to take these supplements on rest days in order to maintain my "load"? Should I be taking two servings* of each on rest days instead of just one? Are the daily servings unnecessary?
*A serving for me is typically a heaping spoonful dissolved in water or cold tea (I know that a sugary drink would help absorption, but I'm not willing to take the downside of the sugar).
