Comparison Of Creatine Ingestion And Resistance Training On Energy Expenditure And Limb Blood Flow
Notes for this study:
||RMR increased by 115 calories in Cr-RT group, 47 calories in Cr alone (both significant) and insignificant amount in RT-placebo.
|Number of Subjects
30 healthy but untrained male volunteers were given either placebo or a loading dose of creatine (5 g four times a day for 5 days) followed by a maintenance dose (5 g twice a day) for 28 days and underwent 5 hours of resistance training a week or remained on creatine without training. Creatine plus resistance training improved calf and forearm blood flow. Fat-free mass, strength, and resting metabolic rate also increased.
