Algunas buenas razones para usar creatina en pruebas de larga distancia

Aunque históricamente la creatina se haya asociado sobre todo a otros deportes como el culturismo por potenciar el crecimiento muscular extensivo, la realidad es que también tiene algunas propiedades perfectas para las pruebas de resistencia y de larga distancia, como Costa Blanca Bike Race.

La Creatina es una proteína necesaria para formar Fosfocreatína, una molécula formada por aminoácidos responsables de la transmisión de eneregía a nuestros músculos.

Razones por las que la creatína nos hará mejorar nuestro rendimiento en una pueba como Costa Blanca Bike Race

– Intensifica los picos de esfuerzo. Esto es algo que nos vendrá perfecto para los puntos de la carrera con más exigencia, y con mayor desnivel

– Mayor tolerancia a las altas intensidades. Al disponer de más energía y capacidad para desepeñar picos de esfuerzo, si combinamos la toma de Creatína con un entrenamiento adecuado, podremos desarrollar esta mayor tolerancia

– Retrasa la fatiga muscular. Sobre todo en esfuerzos intermitentes y de mayos exigencia, como algunos que nos encontarremos en Costa Blanca Bike Race.

– Reduce la acidez en el músculo. Con esto logramos porder incrementar la carga de entrenamiento, permitiendo realizar más repeticiones a la misma intensidad con recuperaciones más cortas.

– Aumenta los niveles de glucógeno muscular. POr este motivo nos asegura disponer de más “gasolina” para aguantar.

 

Pero, dónde encontramos Creatína?

En pescados azules como el atún, el salmón y arenques. También en la carne de cerdo y reses. Entre 4 y 10 gramos de creatina por kilo.

También podemos ingerir Creatina a través del Recovery Drink 226ERS, que contiene 3 gramos de Creatina por toma, combinada con proteínas, carbohidratos y aminoácidos. Esta proporción asegura una reducción del tiempo de recuperación y la pérdida de masa muscular sin incurrir en el aumento excesivo de esta, ni en retención de líquidos que podría provocar un aumento de peso
