“Should I be taking Creatine?”

The question I get asked the most:


“Should I be taking Creatine?”


In short, YES!


Swipe ⏩ for a more detailed explanation of why.


Creatine is the most researched, safest, cheapest supplement on the market.


If you are working out with a high intensity twice or more per week, you should be taking it.


What does Creatine do?


Your body produces a chemical called Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP).


I explain it like it’s a battery 🔋. When you push a set really hard, the battery life drains 🪫. Creatine adds a little extra charge to that battery.


Creatine draws water into your muscles. Be advised that you may gain 3-5 lbs from it but it’s WATER, not fat!


Creatine helps you push out an extra rep, it can help you add a little weight to the bar.


No, it’s not a Steroid. Yes, it’s completely legal.


Will I add muscle if I take Creatine?


If you workout properly, then Yes. If you sit on the couch expecting it to magically add muscle, then No.


Creatine may also improve cognitive function, such as short-term memory, reasoning, and intelligence. It may also help with recovery from traumatic brain injury (TBI) in children, and reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression.


How do you take Creatine?


There are 2 ways:


  1. Creatine loading - 20g per day (4 5g servings) for 5 days and it’ll be fully saturated in your muscles and then 5g a day after (I don’t recommend this)

  2. Take 5mg a day daily. After 30 days it’ll be fully saturated in your muscles.


Bottom line, TAKE CREATINE!
