Here is a video which describes what creatine monohydrate is and how it’s used in bodybuilding. Creatine monohydrate has been used in the sports industry for decades now to help athletes with strength, extra reps and in some athletes creatine can help them grow new muscle tissue.
Creatine was first discovered and used in the horse racing industry, and when it was discovered by the bodybuilding industry it has never looked back. Creatine is one of the most commonly used supplement in the gym. There are so many studies telling you the benefits of creatine monohydrate on performance iv lost count. It has been shown to improve athletic performance, via strength, power and endurance levels. In some athletes it has also been shown to increase muscle mass, mainly due to the ability of the muscles being able to recover quicker from their training.
You can load creatine monohydrate but if you just take 5g a day your levels will reach saturation point and its effects will be the same in time. But like me many of you want the gains as quick as possible, so I would advise 20g a day for 5 days then go on 5g after that to get it into your system as quick as possible.
Creatine monohydrate is such an inexpensive product I would always have it in my supplement regime, with all the evidence of its aid in the gym it would be rude to ignore it.
