A session of rigorous weight training demands a tremendous amount of energy from the body. The body generates this energy through the synthesis of the Adenosine Triphosphate molecules or ATP molecules that are considered to be the most basic energy source. They are called energy currency of the body. The more the production of ATPs, the higher the energy levels. However, once produced, the body cannot retain the ATP molecules for long. The body, at a time, can only keep ATP molecules enough to fuel 8-10 seconds of rigorous weight training. Thus, the body needs a constant supply of a protein source that can be easily digested and synthesized to ensure high energy levels in the body. Creatine is the amino acid produced during Protein synthesis that facilitates the production of ATP molecules. The creation of ATP molecules from Creatine facilitated by the presence of water in the body that ensures that it easily absorbed by the cells. The amount of Creatine created and stored in the body as Phosphocreatine is not sufficient for generating the amount of energy required for a severe resistance training session. Therefore, the supply of Creatine through dietary intake becomes essential for anyone who is into progressive strict weight training to gain muscle mass.
A Creatine supplement that is easily soluble and can be easily retained in the powerhouse of the cell can make an excellent pre-workout and post-workout dietary supplement.
