Creatine monohydrate has become the supplement of choice for many athletes striving to improve sports performance. Recent data indicate that athletes may not be using creatine as a sports performance booster per se but instead use creatine chronically as a training aid to augment intense resistance training workouts. Although several studies have evaluated the combined effects of creatine supplementation and resistance training on muscle strength and weightlifting performance, these data have… Expand
Creatine supplementation with specific view to exercise/sports performance: an update
TLDR
Although presently ingesting creatine as an oral supplement is considered safe and ethical, the perception of safety cannot be guaranteed, especially when administered for long period of time to different populations (athletes, sedentary, patient, active, young or elderly). Expand
Effects of Creatine Supplementation during Resistance Training Sessions in Physically Active Young Adults
TLDR
Creatine ingestion during resistance training sessions is a viable strategy for improving muscle strength and some indices of muscle endurance in physically active young adults. Expand
Creatine for Exercise and Sports Performance, with Recovery Considerations for Healthy Populations
TLDR
The purpose of this review was to summarize the existing literature surrounding the efficacy of creatine supplementation on exercise and sports performance, along with recovery factors in healthy populations. Expand
Scientific basis and practical aspects of creatine supplementation for athletes.
TLDR
The predominance of research indicates that creatine supplementation represents a safe, effective, and legal method to enhance muscle size and strength responses to resistance training. Expand
Creatine supplementation does not reduce muscle damage or enhance recovery from resistance exercise.
TLDR
Oral creatine supplementation does not reduce skeletal muscle damage or enhance recovery following a hypoxic resistance exercise challenge, and the effects of short-term creatine supplementation on markers of muscle damage and range of motion are examined. Expand
Creatine supplementation and swim performance: a brief review.
TLDR
Research performed on the effect of creatine supplementation on swimming performance indicates that whilst creatine supplementation is ineffective in improving performance during a single sprint swim, dietary creatine supplementation may benefit repeated interval swim set performance. Expand
The effects of age on skeletal muscle and the phosphocreatine energy system: can creatine supplementation help older adults
TLDR
Results suggest creatine supplementation to be a safe, inexpensive and effective nutritional intervention, particularly when consumed in conjunction with a resistance training regime, for slowing the rate of muscle wasting that is associated with aging. Expand
CREATINE SUPPLEMENTATION DOES NOT REDUCE MUSCLE DAMAGE OR ENHANCE RECOVERY FROM RESISTANCE EXERCISE
TLDR
Oral creatine supplementation does not reduce skeletal muscle damage or enhance recovery following a hypoxic resistance exercise challenge, and the effects of short-term creatine supplementation on markers of muscle damage and range of motion are examined. Expand
Muscle strength and muscle endurance: with and without creatine supplementation.
TLDR
The results indicated that Muscle endurance was improved better in the EG and supplementation of creatine monohydrate supplements is useful to improve both muscular strength and muscular endurance. Expand
Effects of 4-Week Creatine Supplementation Combined with Complex Training on Muscle Damage and Sport Performance
TLDR
It was concluded that creatine supplementation combined with complex training improved maximal muscular strength and reduced muscle damage during training. Expand

Long-term creatine intake is beneficial to muscle performance during resistance training.
TLDR
It is concluded that long-term creatine supplementation enhances the progress of muscle strength during resistance training in sedentary females. Expand
Long-Term Effects of Creatine Monohydrate on Strength and Power
TLDR
The results indicate that 10 weeks of creatine monohydrate supplementation while participating in a resistance training program significantly increases strength and power indices compared with placebo supplementation, and indicates that lower doses of Creatine monohydrate may be ingested, without a short-term, large-dose loading phase, for an extended period to achieve significant performance enhancement.

Performance and muscle fiber adaptations to creatine supplementation and heavy resistance training.
TLDR
Creatine supplementation enhanced fat-free mass, physical performance, and muscle morphology in response to heavy resistance training, presumably mediated via higher quality training sessions. Expand

TLDR
Although Cr supplementation exhibits small but significant physiological and performance changes, the increases in performance are realized during very specific exercise conditions, suggesting that the apparent high expectations for performance enhancement, evident by the extensive use of Cr supplementation, are inordinate.

Creatine supplementation combined with resistance training in older men.
TLDR
Creatine supplementation, when combined with resistance training, increases lean tissue mass and improves leg strength, endurance, and average power in men of mean age 70 yr. Expand
Effects of oral creatine supplementation on muscular strength and body composition.
TLDR
Creatine supplementation during arm flexor strength training lead to greater increases in arm Flexor muscular strength, upper arm muscle area, and fat-free mass than strength training alone. Expand
Creatine-dextrose and protein-dextrose induce similar strength gains during training.
TLDR
It was concluded that postexercise supplementation with PRO-CHO resulted in similar increases in strength after a resistance exercise training program as compared with CR-CHO, however, the greater gains in total mass for the CR- CHO group may have implications for sport-specific performance. Expand
Creatine supplementation improves muscular performance in older men.
TLDR
7 d of creatine supplementation is effective at increasing several indices of muscle performance, including functional tests in older men without adverse side effects, and may be a useful therapeutic strategy for older adults to attenuate loss in muscle strength and performance of functional living tasks. Expand
Creatine supplementation enhances muscular performance during high-intensity resistance exercise.
TLDR
One week of creatine supplementation (25 g/day) enhances muscular performance during repeated sets of bench press and jump squat exercise and results in a significant improvement in peak power output and repetitions. Expand
