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?
Especially, 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 set, this includes exercises such as:
- Compound lifts like deadlifts, squats and bench press.
- Explosive movements like power clean 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.
