    But creatine supplementation resulted in significant improvements, reducing the 100m sprint time from 11.68 to 11.59secs

    thats one study i found

    Made me feel heavy as shit. Great for powerlifting though. Great “pump”. Taken along with Arginine AKG and Citulline Mallate it works wonders for strength and aesthetics.

    Nothing for track but little strength gain in the gym.

    So Nick, TSB, Mortac – do you not use creatine? Or do you just not think it has an effect on track event?

    I like creatine and believe in its benefits. One important caveat, I think the benefits are long-term and not something that can be noticed immediately, like caffeine or a pH buffer. I think the main benefit is in work capacity, and while my personal opinion is that it would benefit a 400m sprinter more so than a shorter sprinter, I have no studies or observations to back it up. There are studies that indicate that sprint performance improves over time when using creatine…

    I have used it over the years, but am currently not. My feeling is it makes little difference.

    That said – I felt it had a huge impact back in school when I first started using it – but think that was more due to the fact that I’d just started weight training, and was making huge improvements regardless of supplements.

    It’s in my protein/ bcaa shake so i can’t really stop using it. I’ve used it for ages. Sometimes i’ve used it in isolation and i’ve just never really felt or noticed anything different and i’m in very good touch with my body. I can usually notice the most tiny change…

    Only difference I’ve SOMEtimes noticed, is a very tiny edge in the gym. The edge could be coincidental anyway though… such as 1 extra rep when benching.

    I’ve used diff. types of creatine mono, purple k, kre alkalyne powder, a mixture of a few types of creatine, and results have been… …. lol.
