Creatine after workout

From boosting strength to building muscle to improving productivity, there are plenty of science-backed benefits linked to the popular workout supplement creatine. And according to new research published in the Journal of International Society of Sports Nutrition, whether you take the supplement before or after resistance training could amplify its effects.

For the study, 19 male recreational bodybuilders were randomly divided into two groups. One group took 5 grams of creatine monohydrate before workouts and another group took the same amount of creatine immediately following their workouts. The men trained five days a week for four weeks and consumed 1.9 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight.

While creatine boosted strength and muscle mass among all men in the study, those who took creatine after working out gained more lean mass and increased their bench-press one-rep max more than men who took the supplement pre-workout.
