💊So in most posts you’ll see about supplements (especially with women) you’ll see us talking about protein or aminos or fat burners, but what about creatine? Creatine is scientifically proven to 💪🏻increase strength, 💪🏻create LEAN body mass, 🏋🏼♀️and help create ATP needed for explosive workouts... so why aren’t we taking it or talking about it? 👉🏻A lot of us (including myself) have fed into the “bro-science” that creatine makes you bulky or that it makes you retain water and that it’s only for men that want to get big... 🙅🏼♀️Well I’m here to tell you this is all FALSE!🙅🏼♀️ 📕When I got certified in sports nutrition and supplementation at Glanbia headquarters I learned a lot about the importance of creatine intake and our teacher debunked all the myths associated with creatine showing that it is very beneficial with 🙅🏼♀️no bad side effects. We do get creatine from our meats like 🥩steak or salmon but it’s barely enough and our body tends to pee most of it out. So using creatine supplement is super important for those who workout and sweat a lot as well as vegans or vegetarians who are not getting any creatine from meat.🥩
Even after learning about it I still didn’t end up taking it until I started with my new coach and it was on my supplement list on the program he sent me. I always follow a program to the T, so I started taking it.
💪🏻I have noticed significant stregnth gains and NO water retention💧! I can honestly say I am now a fan of the supplement! I put a scoop of @bsnsupplements creatine in my AminoX to drink during the workout. I’ve watched a lot of YouTube videos and some say to take it before / some say after / some say during so I just like taking it with the aminos so I don’t get a weird taste. 😉
So moral of the story.. don’t be afraid of creatine! It’s a very beneficial supplement for us women and men to be taking! 💪🏻👸🏼💕LizzieIFBBPro
