Exercise stimulates muscle growth; hardly anyone would argue with this assertion. In essence, muscle adapts to the additional load you are placing on it by growing. Think of this developmental process as a type of memory. Muscle is anticipating the new heights in physical activity (exercise) that you will be imposing [...]

Three conditions must be met in order to establish the best metabolic conditions for muscle anabolism: 1) an exercise stimulus is required to incite muscle’s biosynthetic machinery into action; 2) proper nutrition is needed to provide the proper substrates for growth and; 3) adequate rest is required so that muscle’s biosynthetic machinery can work at [...]
Anabolism: The set of metabolic pathways that construct molecules from smaller units (Wikipedia).
Let me expand this rather abstract definition of anabolism to better suit our purposes.
With reference to muscle development, anabolism is the combined set of cellular and hormonal circumstances that cause muscle growth to out weigh muscle breakdown following exercise.
With reference to creatine supplementation, [...]
