|Skip down to the “Bottom Line”|
Of the many, many muscle building supplements on the market, there is only one that actually approaches living up to its hype. That supplement, of course, is creatine.
It isn’t a secret. It is the most researched, tested and used muscle building supplement.
If you have involved yourself in any fitness-related pursuit you have heard about creatine. You’ve either used it or considered using it.
So, it stands to reason, with all the research available on creatine, with all the people using it, with all the information about it out there, it would be a pretty well understood supplement.
People are undoubtedly using it effectively, right? They are getting the most out of it, experiencing the best possible results?
Well, unfortunately, the answers to those questions are a definitive “NO”.
While it is the most used and potentially effective natural supplement out there, it can also lay claim to the more dubious distinction of being the most misused and underutilized supplement.
Still, is a whole ebook devoted to creatine really necessary?
To be honest, when I got the ebook, “Creatine: A Practical Guide”, for review, I didn’t think so. Every bodybuilding book written since the mid-90s has certainly provided some guidance on supplementing with creatine. On the web and elsewhere, there is a ton of creatine information.
I’d read that stuff and considered myself pretty knowledgeable on the subject. I was using creatine and I was seeing results. I didn’t think I needed to know anything else.
Dr. Franco-Obregón’s guide, however, opened my eyes to just how little I knew about creatine. It opened my eyes to how much I’d actually underestimated its potential. It opened my eyes (and my muscles) to just how big of an impact the proper usage of creatine could have on my goals.
The basic idea behind supplementation is to try and maximize your creatine reserves. To maximize your creatine reserves is to achieve optimal creatine use. Unfortunately, while you will probably improve your muscle creatine levels by simply supplementing with a “devil-may-care” philosophy, you aren’t likely to approach the supplement’s maximum potential.
This is where most people are – they know just enough to get “some” results. They get their information from product labels and advertisements, from friends at the gym, message boards and other questionable information sources.
These people get a glimpse of creatine’s potential but they never unleash its full potential.
In “Creatine: A Practical Guide”, you learn how and when to take creatine for best results. You learn proper dosages, and how to handle the loading, maintenance and washout phases of supplementation. You learn about cycling and other techniques that help increase both the safety and efficacy of use.
In short, you learn how to extract the “full anabolic punch” from creatine.
Dr. Franco-Obregón doesn’t stop at outlining the optimal strategies for creatine supplementation – he takes you through all the steps necessary to create the ultimate anabolic environment. He goes into pre and post-workout meal strategies, telling you what you need to be fueling your body with at these critical feeding times.
He also looks at the importance of glutamine, whey protein and other popular supplements. He examines the facts about these supplements, explains the roles they can play in helping you reach your full athletic potential and tells you exactly how to most effectively use them.
In the end, this ebook was an incredibly pleasant surprise for me. I learned a lot.
Creatine’s role is so central to muscle growth that you are not just learning about creatine – you are getting an education on the entire muscle building process.
It is very scientific but Dr. Franco-Obregón understands his audience and does a tremendous job of condensing and simplifying the complexities of muscle growth and then presenting them back in a way that the layperson can fully understand.
This is a former 5-Star product. I really liked it. But it went offline for a long time early in 2014. I’ve tried contacting Dr. Franco-Obregón several times with no response.
By appearances, it is no longer updated. With the constant studies on creatine this was one of the products biggest draws. Still a great read, but a little dated.
