Creatine...WHAT, HOW, and WHO???

"Should my son be using creatine", is one of the most common supplement questions I get.  Creatine is probably one of the most improperly used supplements on the market, which has given it a bad rep.  It is a very safe and productive supplement WHEN USED PROPERLY.  

First, I want to explain WHAT creatine is, and does.  The scientific answer is that Creatine Monohydrate increases intramuscular phosphocreatine, which is important because it increases ATP rephosphorylation...BLA BLA BLA...and here's the bottom delays the onset of muscular fatigue.  Any training can benefit from creatine supplementation, however, there is a time and place for this.
