TSV 1880 Wasserburg
"Make it your game!"
In a 2017 position paper, the International Society of Sports Nutrition listed basketball as one of the sport disciplines, for which a creatine supplementation has been shown to improve performance. This position did not come as a surprise. The effectiveness of creatine in high intensity sports has been studied and proven for decade – especially in sports, where athletes are dependent on maximal strength and speed, as well as a quick recovery from repeated high-energy outputs. In Basketball, a regular creatine supplementation has shown to improve the “bounce” in various jumps – more specifically vertical jumps, countermovement jumps, spike jumps and block jumps.
Studies conducted in the US have shown that creatine supplementation is common in sports such as soccer, tennis, hockey, and basketball. Of the athletes surveyed, 21 percent said they take creatine. In conclusion, the higher the proportion of strength, sprint, jump, and interval requirements of a sport, the more athletes use creatine. However, athletes are not the only ones who can benefit from taking their 5g of Creapure® every day. Numerous health-supporting benefits and the positive impact on the energy metabolism in human cells (muscle cells, brain cells, and immune cells) have been proven by countless studies. The women's basketball team of TSV 1880 Wasserburg a. Inn e.V. is an absolute flagship of the club and of German basketball. After being promoted to the first Bundesliga (1st DBBL) in 2001, the team has competed at the highest level for 20 years, winning 11 x German championships, establishing themselves as one of the leading basketball teams in Germany and Europe.
