EFFECTS OF THE CREATINE MONOHYDRATE SUPPLEMENT ON POWER OUTPUT AS MEASURED BY THE WINGATE ANAEROBIC POWER TEST (WAnT)
Introduction: The Wingate Anaerobic Power Test (WAnT) has been a popular method for assessment of anaerobic power. Anaerobic power is determined when the adenosine triphosphate and phosphocreatine (ATP-PCr) energy pathways are used to as the energy source to generate mechanical work. Creatine monohydrate has been a staple supplement because it’s inexpensive, safe and natural. Creatine is found and stored in our skeletal muscles as phosphocreatine which is associated with power output.
