On April 3, 2013, Muscular Development magazine responds to an article published by Stack, which describes the use and effectiveness of creatine for training exercises.
According to an article published by Stack, creatine is a naturally occurring substance in the body used in energy production. It increases the rate of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) during short, intense workouts. This means that your body will be able to maintain a high level of progress when performing intense workouts. It can also shorten recovery time.
Brian Turner, a spokesperson for Muscular Development magazine, says there are many misconceptions relating to creatine. “Creatine is one of the most studied supplements available,” Turner says. “With a tremendous volume of supportive data showing its nutritional aid for athletes, creatine is also one of the only supplements legally used by professional athletes. It really helps you get more out of your workout when taken in moderation,” he says.
Turner says creatine is known to improve strength and lean body mass when used with a strict training regimen. “There are many studies that show creatine boosts performance and amplifies the ability to push through a workout while minimizing the risk for injury,” he says. “Some experts even say athletes not using creatine could be at a disadvantage.”
According to the Stack article, the Society of Sports Nutrition says, “The use of creatine as a nutritional supplement within [established] guidelines is safe, effective and ethical. Despite lingering myths concerning creatine supplementation in conjunction with exercise, creatine monohydrate remains one of the most extensively studied, as well as effective, nutritional aids available to athletes.”
As with any supplement, Turner says it’s important to look into each brand. “You want to make sure you’re consuming the best type of creatine,” he says. “It’s always good to get something of the highest quality. Every brand is different. Don’t forget to look at the labels to make sure the supplement is not mixed with additives that could potentially be harmful.”
