Creatine For Endurance
The NEW Max Effort Muscle Tri-Blend Creatine is designed to combine three different types of Creatine, Monohydrate, AKG and HCl. Monohydrate being the most commonly utilized in the general population and is found in the greatest concentration in the new Max Effort Creatine. The Tri-Blend Creatine contains 2,500 mg of Creatine Monohydrate, 1,500 mg of Creatine AKG and 1,500 mg of Creatine HCL.
Creatine can produce many benefits to athletes and fitness fanatics alike, such as improving strength and endurance. Creatine monohydrate improves endurance by increasing the concentration of phosphocreatine (PCr) in the body. Phosphocreatine along with free adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP) is a part of the phosphagen energy system. This energy system is activated during short bursts of activity. The body does not need to go through all the steps of carbohydrate or lipid metabolism in order to do something like stand up or even take a one rep max lift because the duration of the activity is so short. The available phosphagen stores in the body typically last for a few seconds, after the free ATP in the body is used up we resort to the slower processes of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism.
So how exactly does increasing the concentration of phosphocreatine help this system? Well, when the body begins using up the free ATP, the concentration of adenosine diphosphate (ADP) increases. ADP is a perfect candidate for creating new ATP because all it needs is one more phosphate. Phosphocreatine is generous enough to donate the extra phosphate to the ADP molecule transforming ADP to ATP, which can be readily used for energy. By increasing this immediate energy storage you are better able to perform anaerobic activities such as one rep max lifts or short burst exercises such as sprints. Hop on the Max Effort Muscle Tri-Blend Creatine and make your body’s energy metabolism more efficient!
