Pre-workout or Creatine: which is better?
In often lively discussions about the various health and fitness supplementation categories, there’s often a ‘this or that’ debate. Two of the most compared and contrasted supplements can be pre-workouts versus creatine, with people wondering “which is better?” (Spoiler alert: there’s no need to choose one or the other. You can choose to use both.)
Worldwide, pre-workouts and creatine are avidly recommended and routinely relied upon for numerous training regimens. Individually designed to help you reach and even exceed your fitness goals, there are additional benefits to using them together.
Putting pre-workout supplementation to work
If you’re regularly working out — several sessions each week — you’ll get the most out of your pre-workout by taking it a half-hour in advance.
Do you need explosive energy to help power you through workouts? GAT Sport Nitraflex Black is a powerful pre-workout that provides a much-needed energy boost. Plus, it also has specific, clinically-tested ingredients to support enhanced blood flow (called hyperemia), resulting in an outstanding muscle pump.
If you’re new to taking pre-workouts, one scoop is all you need. A bottle of Nitraflex Black will help you easily conquer 40 workouts.
And sometimes, on those days when putting in a truly A+ training effort can be challenging, a little extra pre-workout energy can put you right over the top. Working out first thing in the morning, and your energy levels are low? After a long workday, are you hitting the gym mentally drained? GAT Sport Nitraflex Black comes to your rescue!
It has four amazing flavors: Pineapple Orange Mango, Green Apple, Strawberry Kiwi, and Watermelon Dragonfruit.
Making creatine supplementation work for you
If you’re looking to both improve strength and build muscle, creatine is tried and true. For decades, creatine has been providing athletes and workout enthusiasts with an extra push, helping to build muscle mass as well as helping muscle recovery.
A typical creatine monohydrate is very effective. But sometimes, it can produce uncomfortable side effects, such as water retention and a bloating feeling. So, to find the ideal creatine solution for your health and fitness goals, it’s wise to look beyond creatine monohydrate.
It’s often said that creatine is the world's most researched supplement. Putting that research to work over the years has led to creatine evolving dramatically. Traditionally, creatine has been offered as an unflavored powder, to promote mixability. But it doesn’t have to be tasteless.
GAT Sport Creatine HCI+ is an entirely new approach to formulating creatine that recently hit, and is 59x more water-soluble than creatine monohydrate, so it’s more bioavailable.
In fact, Creatine HCI+ is far more than just plain creatine. It’s a multi-stage creatine and nitric oxide formula that contains Creatine Nitrate and Agmatine Sulfate, to give your muscles a dense feeling from enhanced blood flow. And, there’s no water retention and less bloating. Creatine HCI+ saturates your muscles with creatine faster, so you can skip the annoying, often week-long “loading phase” normally associated with creatine!
Creatine HCI+ is available in three delicious flavors: Fruit Punch, Blue Raspberry, and Pink Lemonade.
Stacking Nitraflex Black and Creatine HCI+
Can a pre-workout like GAT Nitraflex Black and GAT Creatine HCI+ be stacked? Sure. To stack is simply to take two supplements one after the other, in the same workout session.
Nitraflex Black provides ample energy to get through a tough workout and will help promote blood flow during the training. Creatine HCI+ will help improve your strength, recovery, and promote muscle “fullness”.
