Endurance and Performance
During resistance or endurance training where strength is a fundamental requirement, it is essential to have built up the energy reserves to fuel the event or training session.
Important issues to cover are that you have consumed adequate foods that provide energy before and in some cases during it. Your hydration levels are good and over a period of time you have been well hydrated before the event. Post-training nutrition has included good quality protein and starchy carbs to help muscles recover and glycogen stores to be replenished.
NAMEDSPORT> HydraFit> is a hypotonic drink with vitamins and is a great drink to re-hydrate. Sip during training to refresh and maintain fluid levels.
After training a superior protein NAMEDSPORT> like Star Whey can deliver the protein required for muscle regeneration and because of its formulation is rapidly absorbed thus speeding up the recovery phase.
Hunger pangs attack when glycogen levels are low and the body needs energy. Often the tendency will be to overeat and these increased calories can lead to weight gain or slow down the weight loss which may be the desired outcome of your training. Low energy levels during an event will also seriously reduce your performance.
Structuring your diet during the training phase in smaller but more regular meals (every 2 hours). In general carbohydrates should make up to 60% of your daily intake with 20% coming from protein and a further 20% from fats. Structure each meal to cover your needs but pay attention to the meals before and after training. The pre-training meal should favour more carbohydrates and the post- training meal more protein and starchy carbs. During extended endurance training consider using a high energy gel like NAMEDSPORT> Total energy gel to boost available energy stores.
When access to foods is restricted consider products from the NAMEDSPORT® total energy line which have been designed to boost energy levels fast.
During exercise NAMEDSPORT> Isonam Energy helps hydration and delivers energy to sustain your performance. Post training meals favouring protein and complex carbs can be supplemented with NAMEDSPORT> products with amino acids that repair muscles speeding up the recovery phase. NAMEDSPORT> 4 Fuel contains minerals and amino acids and NAMEDSPORT> Aminonam Sport has a complete pool of the amino acids & vitamins required for faster regeneration of the muscles.
