The Benefits of Taking Creatine

What’s up guys? Today, I’m going to talk to you about the benefits of creatine. Believe it or not, I’ve been using creatine for over a decade. Why? Because creatine works. How do I know? I can physically feel it and see it. When I look in the mirror, I’m rounder and fuller. And when I’m in the gym, I’m stronger and I recover faster.

Does Creatine Cause Bloating?

There’s this misconception about creatine out there, that all it does is bloat you and add unnecessary water weight. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. What creatine actually does is it hydrates your muscle cells. When you have a hydrated muscle cell you can grow and perform at your best. And that’s why I even consume creatine up until show day because it keeps my muscles full and round and looking my best.

When’s the Best Time to Take Creatine?

You can take creatine any time of day. In the morning, pre-workout or post workout. Personally, I always take my creatine post-workout, except on rest days. On rest days I take creatine immediately upon waking.

If you're serious about your training and physique goals, you’ve got to check out creatine. The science is there, and it works.
