3. Increases Intense Training Performance

Creatine can help performance athletes get a little extra out of their muscles. High intensity training can build lean muscle mass, which is vital for peak performance. The addition of creatine allows athletes to tap into reserves to accelerate this process.

There are also indications that endurance strength could be improved, giving athletes an extra boost during intense training sessions. This is because the athlete can keep up the performance for a longer period without experiencing fatigue.
