Energy, Performance and Recovery
In cycling the cyclic process in which the body is depleted by intense riding and then recovers builds up resistance resulting in better performance over time. This super compensation is also enhanced by the body’s ability to store energy for use on the road.
For this reason the speed and quality of the recovery is very much influenced by the quality and quantity of the food you eat.
The quality of Proteins eaten is useful in muscle recovery and the replacement of fluids and glycogen stores is as important.
