Role of Exercises in Enhancing Your Health
One cannot undermine the role of exercises in promoting fitness and good health. A dedicated regular exercise routine could prove to be immensely helpful. You simply cannot choose to ignore the multiple benefits of some sort of physical activity and regular exercises. You would surely be benefited by daily exercises irrespective of age, physical ability or sex.
Despite being one of the most well-researched sports nutrition supplements around, there still seems to be a lot of misunderstanding surrounding Creatine. In this article I will attempt to clear up some of this confusion, explain exactly what creatine is, introduce Five Big Benefits of Creatine, and provide a few links to some of the relevant research.
What is Creatine?
First of all, let’s take a look at what exactly creatine is. Here is a simplified description: the basic currency of energy in your body is adenosine triphosphate (ATP). When your body uses it, it gives up a phosphate group becoming adenosine diphosphate (ADP).
Creatine is stored as creatine phosphate (CP) in your body. Before your body starts using glucose for energy, it first breaks down ATP as a quick energy source. So when your body needs energy quickly (ie: power for the first few reps), the creatine “donates” its phosphate to the ADP, which becomes ATP, providing your cells with some extra energy.
Creatine is a completely safe, natural food supplement. It is already present in our bodies and in many of the foods we eat (especially meat).
Research says that “there appears to be no strong scientific evidence to support any adverse effects…”
Here is a great interview with Examine.com that covers most of the basics about supplementing with creatine:
It can be challenging to stay motivated to exercise regularly. In my experience people come up with all kinds of excuses, including: not having enough time, not having the money, or not having enough energy. I’m going to address the “lack of energy” issue by introducing 6 Quick Ways to Energize Your Workout.
Caffeine is one of the most common ways people use to boost their “energy”. Caffeine, a chemical present in coffee, tea, soda pop, “energy” drinks, and some sports supplements, is a stimulant that will increase your heart-rate and mental alertness. Athletes will often use caffeine before training to improve performance. Consuming 100 to 300 mg of caffeine before your workout is safe and effective for most people (a cup of coffee is about 100mg). Just practice moderation and if you drink coffee try to avoid adding excessive amounts of cream and sugar!
2) Feed with Fast Fuels:
Carbohydrates are the bodies go-to fuel source for intense exercise. Consuming high-carb food or drink (such as fruit or a sports drink) about an hour before exercise can provide a readily available source of energy for your workout. Research has also shown that sipping on a sports drink (such as Gatorade or Powerade) during physical activity can delay fatigue and improve performance. Again, moderation is the key… eating or drinking too much before exercise can cause problems.
Someone on Facebook recently asked me what supplements I recommend before and after a workout. Since pre-workout powders and drinks seem to be all the rage right now, and everyone is also talking about what supplements to take during and after your workout to optimize recovery and maximize “dem gainz”, I decided to shoot a video discussing my own peri-workout recommendations:
A friend of mine, Chris Owens, recently sent me a sample of a natural energy supplement called ADAPT Energy. He wanted me to put it to the test before a tough workout and compare it to my regular pre-workout drinks. Here is my video review of this supplement, as well as some footage of my core workout with Kane following his SHIT protocol (Super Hero Interval Training).
Here is the product information I pulled from Chris’s website at JDPremium.com:
Adaptogens–the legal supercharger of Olympians. What if you knew the secret to how Olympic athletes train their muscles to perform at maximum endurance and energy? Look no further, now you have it.
