Creatine is the single greatest tool, in my opinion, to break through plateaus, increase strength, size and endurance.
I’ve used creatine on and off for nearly 20 years. Probably more on than off as I just love the feel of training when I’m taking creatine.
I always use a 5 day loading phase to make sure I’m completely saturated before starting an 8-12 week phase of training where I will be in maintenance.
The beauty of creatine is that it will suit any style of training, weather you are trying to gain strength or to really push your endurance or repetitions.
Creatine is best used post workout to aid your recovery. Most commonly taken with a high amount of carbohydrates to shuttle the creatine directly to your muscle tissue. It can also be taken prior to working out as research has shown creatine increases ATP, meaning more power is available to the muscles, allowing you to push yourself further. This is key to continually improving your fitness and reaching higher levels. On the other hand, i take creatine post workout, as it also feeds the muscles with the right nutrients when they need it the most; after strenuous tear.
The creatine supplement i would recommend is my favourite; USN Creatine Anabolic, which I have used for years. It’s still the best product on the market and I never feel the same in the gym unless I’m using it.
The USN Creatine Anabolic is scientifically formulated to provide you with a hardcore performance supplement with the high levels of Creatine and quality carbohydrates.
The high-content levels of quality carbohydrates in the USN Creatine Anabolic add to this break-through formula. The addition of these quality carbs is aimed at reducing your fatigue and supporting your energy levels.
