Consistently in the top 5 recommended supplements for strength and mass, creatine has staked out its position as one of the most important staples for bodybuilders and athletes. This natural metabolite–composed of l-methionine, l-arginine and l-glycine–is largely found in skeletal muscles, where approximently 2 grams a day are metabolized by the typical sedentary office worker. But athletes and bodybuilders who demand optimal performance in their high intensity training need to treat their muscles with far more care than the average joe if they expect to grow and peak.
While we can certainly find this staple in red meat and abundantly in fish, one would have to throw down 2.2lbs of tuna or beef to get the amount of creatine needed for performance enhancement (an amount of meat that contains approximently 4 to 5 grams of creatine). Despite the voracious appetites of most competitive athletes–unless you are on Michael Phelps’ 7000 calorie diet–that is a tall order to fill every day of your life. Alternatively, we can feed our muscles the creatine they need quickly with a scoop of Smart Powders creatine monohydrate powder.
Creatine Monohydrate powder delivers its performance enhancing effects primarily through two mechanisms
By taking creatine monohydrate, you can exceed that 10 second limit, as creatine provides ADP the missing phosphate molecule that it needs to be converted back to ATP. When you enhance your body’s ability to produce ATP, you can train longer and harder with larger energy stores. In addition, lactic acid production is minimized, allowing you to take your sets to the next level and reduce fatigue.More strength, volume, energy and recovery will consistently deliver more muscle.
Examining how creatine works, its should be obvious what creatine can deliver to an athlete or bodybuilder with demanding training regimine. This supplement is sought after by fitness enthusiasts looking to:
Creatine powder should be consumed according a three-phase schedule that can be repeated:
For performance atheletes who are attempting to boost performance and peak for competitions, creatine must be consumed serveral weeks before events so your muscles have time to saturate and benefit from creatine during training.
While a loading phase is not entirely necessary, if you want quick gains and immediate muscle saturation within a week it is essential. When using a loading phase, noticeable results can be had in just 2 weeks, as opposed to a month if you are to simply skip to the maintenance phase. Of course, if you are not in a hurry to put on muscle mass, we recommend that you to start from maintenance phase only.
When used at recommended doses, creatine monohydrate is generally safe. Creatine is generally not recommended for people under the age of 18, due to the lack of research of creatine supplementation in teenagers.
Warning: Keep out of reach of children. Always consult a physician prior to using any dietary supplements.
