  8. 8. Creatine Supplementation How Does Creatine Work? <ul><li>From a physiology standpoint when your body needs to call upon the ATP system. </li></ul><ul><li>ATP will release a phosphate molecule which in turn becomes ADP. This process creates energy but it only lasts a few seconds. </li></ul><ul><li>Once this energy is consumed by the muscles more ATP must be produced. </li></ul><ul><li>www. howtogetleanmusclereview .com </li></ul>
  9. 9. Creatine Supplementation How Does Creatine Work? <ul><li>This is where creatine becomes effective. The creatine will give a phosphate molecule to the ADP molecule creating ATP. This is how more ATP is produced in the body. </li></ul><ul><li>The process will repeat itself converting ATP into ADP and then back again thus creating a continual supply of energy for the muscles. </li></ul><ul><li>The technical term for this process is ATP regeneration. </li></ul><ul><li>www. howtogetleanmusclereview .com </li></ul>

Lactic acid will develop during your workout if ATP regeneration is limited. </li></ul><ul><li>The more lactic acid that builds up in your system the harder it becomes for you to continue to workout. </li></ul>

This will result in improved endurance for working out. </li></ul><ul><li>Creatine also helps in the production of protein which we all know is needed for muscular growth and development. </li></ul><ul><li>www. howtogetleanmusclereview .com </li></ul>
