The function and use of Creatine

132 viewsOther

I keep getting recommended the use of creatine as I stay consistent at working out. But apart from increasing protein, I don’t fully understand how creatine functions in the body and if it’s necessary in lifting weights.

one of the biggest benefits of creatine is that it is linked to shortened recovery times; this allows you to work out more frequently with more benefits………one main reason why you have a leg day; back day; arm day (or whatever mix and match) is because muscles need time recover and grow. if you need to give your muscle group 3 days off without creatine; on creatine you can get the same recovery in less time.

creatine is also an energy source inside the muscles which can aide in strength training and muscle use (other physical activities like sprinting)

creatine is a naturally occurring compound…..if you eat beef/pork/seafood/animal milk, one of the many nutrients is creatine. so in a way adding creatine is similar to adding protein powder to your diet
