STOP BE­ING A LAP DOG

Men's Health (Singapore) - - BULLETINS -

Get ready to bring more power to the pool: Cre­a­tine can im­prove your swim­ming per­for­mance, a new

study pub­lished in The Jour­nal Of Sports Medicine And Phys­i­cal Fit­ness sug­gests. Af­ter men “loaded” them­selves with 20g of cre­a­tine for six days, they felt less fa­tigued and did bet­ter in a se­ries of swim­ming sprints. “Such sprints use up your body’s adeno­sine triphos­phate or ATP – its en­ergy cur­rency,” says nu­tri­tion con­sul­tant Dr Mike Rous­sell. “Sup­ple­ment­ing with cre­a­tine helps your body re­gen­er­ate that ATP, boost­ing power and en­durance.” He rec­om­mends adding 5g of cre­a­tine to your post-work­out drink.
