Abstract

A short period of leg immobilization leads to rapid loss of muscle mass and strength. Creatine supplementation has been shown to increase lean body mass in active individuals and can be used to augment gains in muscle mass and strength during prolonged resistance-type exercise training. Our objective was to investigate whether creatine loading can attenuate the loss of muscle mass and strength during short-term leg immobilization.
