Hence a current study examined the effects of 3 days of resistance training combined with 8 days of creatine supplementation on mean power output, acceleration time, and surface electromyography (EMG) of the leg muscles during maximal effort leg extensions. The results indicated that 3 days of resistance training are sufficient to elicit significant improvements in peak strength and acceleration time.
From a rehabilitation perspective, the results of this study are useful for rehab or strength and conditioning professionals who may need to rapidly increase the strength and power output of an athlete, bodybuilder or fitness enthusiast within 9 days. This is great news for those looking to improve their strength and power output for a specific athletic event or anyone looking to increase training efforts over time.
