BPI Sports athlete and owner of Legion Training, Tyrone Bell, breaks down one of the most widely researched supplements in the fitness industry: Creatine. In this video, Tyrone takes you through the benefits of creatine, why you should take it, and how you should be using it.
First off, Creatine is technically considered an “energy supplement”. Creatine consumption helps create Creatine Phosphate which acts as an energy source allowing your body to access it immediately; especially for explosive, short burst movements.
Secondly, Creatine is responsible for pulling water into the muscle cells. Hydration in the muscle cells helps your cells to remain anabolic, ideal for lean muscle development.
Now, who should supplement with Creatine and when?
A Creatine supplement can be used all year round. However, Tyrone recommends his personal clients use Creatine when reaching a natural plateau. When everything is on point (diet, training, etc) but progress has started to slow, supplementing with Creatine can help boost your anabolic environment and enhance your workout performance.
