April 4, 2009 - PRLog -- If you are new to working out and need to get bigger in a rush, one of the 1st things you want to get into your diet straight away is creatine. Muscle cells need more energy during contraction and may use up all of the available ATP in a long workout. To compensate for this lack, muscle cells maintain a reserve of creatine phosphate. When required, the creatine will "donate" a high-energy phosphate to adenosine diphosphate, forming ATP. And it is ATP that is used to power all energy-dependent reactions of cellular metabolism. Creatine is found naturally in a lot of foods, particularly meats and fish. The average person uses about two grams of creatine a day solely to maintain standard energy metabolism. This is more than twice the quantity of creatine found in the average person's diet. This is the reason why creatine additions are so critical to perfect muscle expansion and performance.

Creatine monohydrate in itself works, but lacks a delivery system to get more of it into your muscles so you end up wasting valuable growing time on a supplement that would produce better results with a quick delivery, system.

There are several products available today that combine Creatine with a delivery system. Presently CELL-TECH(tm) by MuscleTech has been recognized as one of the better products on the market. One study showed that after just seven days, those subjects using CELL-TECH enjoyed average gains of just about four pounds of mass. In the meantime, subjects taking just regular creatine with water averaged less than one pound of mass.

With results like these, it is simple to see why a combined creatine/delivery supplement can--and should--be included in your sport nourishment program.

As you may already know, protein is the necessary nutrient your body uses to build, correct, and maintain muscle tissue. Optimally, you would consume between 1.0 -1.25 grams of protein per lbs. of body weight spread out evenly throughout the day.

That would add up to 6 servings per day with approximately 1/6 of your protein needs per sitting. This leads directly to the issue of which types of proteins you want, and when.

Whey is the ideal protein source for speedy post-workout recovery. Research has shown that whey has the highest biological impact of any protein source. This is the reason why supplement corporations have flooded the market with every kind of whey protein formula possible. Creatine and whey protein are 2 of the most studied supplements used to build muscle on the market today.

Optimum is one of the most well respected names in the industry. Almost every professional Bodybuilder has at one time or another endorsed their products. The consensus seams to be the 100% Whey Protein is the one to go with. It won the supplement of the year for 2005/6/7/8 which is saying a lot.

I like the Extreme Milk Chocolate. Put it in a blender with a few ice cubes and 12 ounce’s of skim milk, blend for about 20-30 seconds and away you go. It tastes like a good malt milkshake.
