Creatine is Great for Muscle Building

Creatine supplements are always evolving coming onto the market in forms that manufacturers claim improve their results. They are now frequently combined with other performance enhancing ingredients in a single supplement to create amazing feelings of “pump” during a workout. Creatine’s ability to enhance energy reserves in muscles comes from its muscle protein synthesizing action, while minimizing protein breakdown. This occurs because creatine has the awesome effect of super-hydrating muscle cells with water. It enhances muscles’ growth too-making muscle fibers bigger and stronger. And these latest versions of creatine supplementation are very effective and I have tried most of them. In the end, the actual way the creatine itself is acting upon the body and its effectiveness are largely unchanged from when I used it for the first time. Over 95% of creatine is stored in muscle tissue! The reason for this is to supply energy to our muscles in daily activity. The fact that it is 100% naturally produced through the body makes this a safe and naturally way to get muscle building results.

All Creatine are not the Same…

In a follow up to fellow blogger Al’s comments concerning Gary Player’s statements about the potential use of creatine in golf along with performing enhancing testosterone and HGH drugs, let me first say that there is NOTHING wrong with the use of creatine in training for sports performance, golf included. Creatine is the most popular sports performance supplement on the market. and is sold from dozens of different suppliers.  It is sold over the counter with absolutely no restriction to its availability to purchase anywhere, including retail outlets worldwide. Some of the most popular versions are in powder form that combine several ingredients to enhance workouts and can be mixed easily in water.

Gary Player Claims Golfer Use Creatine

Gary Player a former great golfer made some reckless and, frankly, highly suspect comments recently. Player who is always trying to get press for himself, made comments to the press about the use of performance-enhancing drugs by members of the world’s professional golfing community.

Player, who always had less notoriety than the great Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicholas, constantly lives in the shadow of the 2 golfing legends. His off-handed comments however did not cast a dark cloud over the British Open. Player is still bitter that fans adore the 2 former greats and he is generally mentioned as an also ran.

Player speaking out of gossip, hear-say, or ignorance is merely jealous that his skills have diminished and he has been forgotten by the golfing world. He is merely a relic of an era long past.

Players now have the benefits of better nutrition, science, supplements, and new technology, all of which make for a better golfer. Gary Player had mentioned that players were taking creatine, hgh, and steroids. First of all creatine is not illegal, nor are products to enhance ones own HGH levels. Steroids and prescription Growth Hormone are illegal without a prescription but I doubt that there are any players using muscle building supplements to play better golf. Players would benefit more from nootropic supplements, which help your mind stay, focused on the task at hand. Golf is a mental game, ask Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson, and others who choke because their mind doesn’t manage the mental part of the game. 18 inch biceps will not help you pitch to within 3 feet of the hole or make a 18 foot put, in fact it may do the opposite. Adrenalin kicks in when a golfer is under pressure, players try to take muscle out of the game and rely on mechanics.

It is plain and simple, athletes will get better, and there will always be those who try to bring themselves up by bringing others down.
