Supplements for athletes to build strength and muscle for baseball and more

Trying to build yourself up for summer? Looking for a way to give your workout an extra boost? And give your body the extra supplement to help you build that muscle? There is a way, and in this article we’ll examine one of the safest ways to go about it.

We haven’t been hearing too much about the use of banned substances in baseball so far this year. There were many players that were still violating this MLB banned substances list in 2012 and 2013, but now that has slowed to just a trickle of players in 2015.

What can a baseball player use that isn’t illegal and is going to help them build up their muscles?

There are probably many ways to accomplish this, let’s look at creatine and the different kinds of creatine available online.

Creatine is naturally produced in the human body, and the use of this supplement is fine for most people except if you have allergies towards creatine. Creatine supplements are used by athletes, weight lifters, and sports players from many different sports.

From Wikipedia about creatine supplements:

There is scientific evidence that short term creatine use can increase maximum power and performance in high-intensity anaerobic repetitive work (periods of work and rest) by 5 to 15%.[8]

Men’s Fitness magazine is a popular publication and recently they ran an article on the many benefits of creatine. They touted creatine as a great way for athletes to build strength and lean muscle mass. They also say it’s not anything scary and it’s not a Barry Bonds starter kit.

Creatine is indeed a natural supplement that usually comes in powdered form that is mixed with a liquid and helps the body produce energy and builds muscle faster. It’s been around for years and is one of the most popular ways to help you get more benefit from your exercise regimen.  

Think of creatine in your workout as added fuel for your muscles to use, your muscles already get some creatine from natural sources from food and it occurs naturally in the body. The supplement helps a whole lot more though because the amount of creatine naturally in your body isn’t sufficient to give you the gains you are looking to make from your workouts.

Check with your health professional to see if creatine supplements can help you in your quest for playing better baseball.
