Introduction: This pilot study examined the effects of carbohydrate loading (CHO) and oral creatine monohydrate loading (Cr) on ultrasound measurements of the lower limbs. Methods: Twelve recreationally-active males (25.5±6.2 y, 81.5±9.6 kg, 180.9±8.8 cm) completed baseline (BL) bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) and muscle ultrasound imaging of the rectus femoris (RF) and the vastus lateralis (VL). Following baseline measurements, participants completed one day of CHO loading (10g CHO/kg), and five days …
