The effects of pre versus post workout supplementation of creatine monohydrate on body composition and strength

OPEN Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition | 8 Aug 2013

J Antonio and V Ciccone
Abstract
Chronic supplementation with creatine monohydrate has been shown to promote increases in total intramuscular creatine, phosphocreatine, skeletal muscle mass, lean body mass and muscle fiber size. Furthermore, there is robust evidence that muscular strength and power will also increase after supplementing with creatine. However, it is not known if the timing of creatine supplementation will affect the adaptive response to exercise. Thus, the purpose of this investigation was to determine the difference between pre versus post exercise supplementation of creatine on measures of body composition and strength.
