How to Use Creatine for Muscle Size

 Creatine-for-muscle-size 

When it comes to gaining size, strength and power in the gym, nothing comes close on the supplement scale to creatine. Creatine can help you push more weight and gain size. So that being said, How to Use Creatine for Muscle Size?

Specially, creatine is going to help you with muscle strength and gains. It does this by converting Adenosine Di-Phosphate (ADP) into Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP). 

ATP is the primary fuel source for all explosive movements roughly under 10 seconds. So, in a resistance training setting, this includes exercises such as:

  • Compound lifts like deadlifts, squats and bench press.
  • Explosive movements like power cleans and presses.
  • As well as short duration sprints & box jumps.

By supplementing with creatine we are able to supply our body with more fuel for these movements.

Not only that, but we are allowing our body to be more efficient at converting used ATP from ADP back into ATP, meaning we become more efficient at recycling our energy source. This allows us to push harder for longer.

What type of creatine should I use?

 So, we now know the benefits of creatine. But what specifically could you take?

We recommend a good quality Micronized Creatine Monohydrate such as Optimum Nutrition Creatine or Rule 1 Creatine. These are the most tested and proven forms of creatine.

Alternatively, a blended creatine such as Maxs Creatine X8 can also be very beneficial for performance. 

How do I take it? 

Spartans recommends that supplementation of creatine should be roughly 10g of Monohydrate a day, regardless of training. 

Ideally taken with a simply carbohydrate source, allowing for optimal uptake with an insulin spike.
