Why Creatine?

The masses are tired of hearing false advertising from workout supplement corporations. We are tired of simply hearing claims of gaining 25 lbs of muscle and losing 40 lbs of fat in 1 month and want to see results. After researching the most popular workout supplements, I have come to realize that Platinum Creatine will produce the best results, regardless of what your fitness goals are.

First, let statistics speak for themselves. "In one clinical study, subjects using the dose of creatine found in one max serving of Platinum 100% Creatine gained an amazing 6 lbs. of muscle in just 6 weeks. And in a separate study, test subjects increased their bench press strength by an amazing 18.6% in just 10 days!" Unlike any other supplements, Platinum Creatine contains 1 ingredient: creatine monohydrate. You avoid the preservatives, high fructose sugars, and artificial flavorings that are incorporated in to the whey protein and pea protein supplements.

This is especially appealing to vegans and vegetarians, whose sole source of natural creatine is in the liver, kidneys, and pancreas. Combined with with high intensity short duration exercise, this protein block will convert phosphocreatine into ATP that can be used as energy. The best part is that this is not banned by any national committees for sports. From body builders to olympic track athletes, everyone seems to be using creatine to take their training to the next level. Go to your local supplement store and ask if they have Platinum Creatine.

Common Misconceptions

As mentioned in the previous video, there are several exercise myths in the fitness industry.

1. Running on the treadmill puts less stress on the knee than running on asphalt.

FALSE. While running, you are applying the same amount of force on the ground, causing a reactive force of the same magnitude to push your body up. This stays constant regardless of what surface you are running on. Creatine contains properties that induce water retention, giving your muscles better sturdiness and mass. This increases the tension in the tendons connecting to the patella, allowing for a more comfortable run.

2. Cardiovascular fitness leads to significant muscle growth.

FALSE. Cardiovascular fitness does not tear the muscle fibers enough to prompt them to regrow stronger 24-48 hours later (without using ankle weights). Even with Platinum Creatine, it is important to note that muscle growth that is non-hypertrophical will only occur with some form of weight training. Cardiovascular fitness will lead to significant fat loss over time, yet muscle mass is lost along with fat. It is recommended to both weight train and do cardio while taking creatine supplements to optimize your workouts.

3. Sweat is a measure of fat loss.

FALSE. Your body will not sweat unless you have drunk copious amounts of water before your workout. Your body will ration out a large majority of the water for cellular respiration and a small portion of the leftovers to dilute the urea in the bladder. For example, you wouldn't break a sweat walking a mile since your body maintains the same temperature and does not need to induce a negative feedback loop.
