Abstract

Objectives: The aim of this study was to compare the influence of creatine monohydrate and creatine malate supplementation on aerobic and anaerobic capacity in semi-professional soccer players during preparation period.

Methods: 15 adult soccer players from polish second league club took part in the study. Participants were divided into two groups (Group 1: supplemented their diet with creatine monohydrate; group 2: used creatine malate). Before and after five-week preparations the aerobic (PWC 170 test) and anaerobic (Wingate test) capacity of the players were measured.

Findings: Significant increase in PWC 170 indicator, maximal oxygen uptake, and total work capacity in Wingate test were noted in the group that consumed creatine monohydrate. Moreover, two-way ANOVA results showed significant effect for time in above mentioned variables.

Conclusions: Creatine monohydrate supplementation may efficiently support aerobic and anaerobic capacity development in semi-professional soccer players. Five-week creatine malate supplementation provides no significant changes in aerobic and anaerobic capacity.
