Who is Classic Creatine ideal for?
Classic Creatine can be used by anyone who lifts weights regularly and wants to gain muscle size, strength and stamina. It is especially helpful for so-called “hard gainers” (i.e. individuals who have an especially difficult time gaining and/or retaining muscle) and anyone who has hit a training plateau (i.e. a period of diminished gains). Also, if you’re returning to the gym after an absence, Classic Creatine will help your muscles get back in shape faster.
Other tips that will help you get awesome results:
1. It has been suggested that the maximum amount of creatine your muscles can absorb at once is roughly around 5g. Your muscle cells contain tiny proteins, known as transporters, that pull creatine inside the cell. Once these become saturated with creatine, they need a few hours to process it before they can take on another 5g dose. For this reason, we suggest allowing at least 4 hours between doses.
2. Creatine requires adequate water to produce maximum results. We advise drinking 10-12 oz with each 5g dose.
3. Eating carbohydrates (“carbs”) enhances the uptake of creatine by your muscles. This is because it stimulates the release of insulin, which in turn stimulates the creatine transporters in your muscle cells. A simple way to take advantage of this is to take each dose of creatine right after eating a carbohydrate-containing meal or snack. Carbs that digest quickly work best. Examples include breakfast cereals (e.g. corn flakes), white rice and potatoes.
