Mr. Harris, if I'm going to switch to a higher rep programming(10 to 12 reps instead of 3 to 5 reps), would it still make sense to take creatine? Creatine is only useful for short-burst stuff right?
p.s. I tried those handstand smith machine squats. They made me turn in my membership card. Thanks a lot!
Creatine has benefits for strength and appearance beyond its effects on the creatine phosphate pathway (although even 10-12 reps will still rely heavily on this pathway).
IMO, the benefits of creatine on cell volumization and water storage inside (and outside) the muscle are at least as important for its use as a performance enhancer as its role in energy production.
I've written before on the "leverage" benefits of being overly hydrated as well as the contractile strength benefits of a well-hydrated muscle.
Creatine plays a major role in both of those areas.
