Although most studies which were athletes involved in power sports, prove the positive effects of creatine, this cannot be said about the tests, during which attempts were made to identify its influence on the development of endurance. In fact, creatine affects mostly the type 2 fibers (fibers responsible for strength and power) and not of type 1 fibers (fibers responsible for endurance). Moreover, creatine promotes weight gain, which is unacceptable for athletes engaged in sports that
require endurance, but also for swimmers who may have problems with buoyancy.
However, prolonged physical exertion in very rare cases are composed entirely of endurance. At certain stages, particularly at the end of the race, the athletes have to speed up the pace. Numerous studies have proven that creatine can affect the results, if during the test of endurance should be made, and repeatedly, intense efforts.
Here are a few examples. A daily Continue reading
