In order to test whether an improvement of maximal sprinting speed after creatine (Cr) supplementation was due to the increase of stride frequency (SF), stride length (SL) or both, 7 subjects ran 4 consecutive sprints after 1 week of placebo or Cr supplementation. SF and SL were assessed by a triaxial accelerometer. Compared to the placebo, Cr induced an increase of running speed (+1.4% p < 0.05) and SF (+1.5%, p < 0.01), but not of SL. The drop in performance following repeated sprints was… CONTINUE READING
