CREATINE DOES NOT AFFECT ANAEROBIC FACTORS IN OARSWOMEN
Faria, E. W., White, M. T., Coragan, C., & Faria, I. E. (2000). Effect of oral creatine supplementation on AOD, AT, and blood lactate in oarswomen. Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, 32(5), Supplement abstract 559.
Trained oarswomen (N = 9) were subjected to control, CHO, and CHO plus creatine treatments over three weeks. After a period of no supplementation, Ss ingested CHO (60 gm/d) for six days then CHO (60 gm/d) as well as creatine (6 gm/d) for another six days.
There was no significant influence of these conditions on accumulated oxygen deficit, predicted supramaximal oxygen uptake, anaerobic threshold, blood lactate, or lean body weight.
Implication. Creatine supplementation does not change exercise metabolism beyond that which exists for carbohydrate supplementation.
