Are you trying to build strength and find yourself doing a lot of high intensity interval training? Have you peaked? If so, creatine might be able to boost you to the next level. A California study indicates that by consuming creatine, you may be helping your muscles build phospocreatine, which gives you the ability to perform better at shorter, intense strength-building exercises. If your gym time consists of many explosive, heavy lifts for shorter rep counts, consider taking a creatine supplement and ditch the pre-workout chicken in favor of foods higher in creatine such as pork, salmon, tuna, or beef.
