ALTHOUGH GLYCOGEN IS CARBOHYDRATE, RESEARCH HAS SHOWN THAT THE MOST EFFECTIVE SUPPLEMENT IS A 4:1 MIXTURE OF CARBOHYDRATE AND PROTEIN
The two most important dietary needs before, during and after exercise are:
- Replacing body fluids – for this you need water and electrolytes
- Conserving/Replacing Muscle Glycogen
At this low level of protein, gastric emptying is not slowed. The quick digestion and absorption of protein provides branched chain amino acids which stops the muscle protein itself being burnt up for energy (overtraining). It also increases the insulin response which drives the carbohydrate into the muscles. This blend can provide 24% – 28% greater increase in endurance than carbohydrate only drinks, and 57% greater than water alone. The protein source is clear whey protein isolate hydrolysate. This avoids the problem of milkshake texture and reflux, and gives rapid release of intact amino acids.
The most important time to replenish your muscles is during the hour after exercise, so that you are fully fit for your next session. This replenishment is important, whether you are an endurance athlete, power athlete, rugby or football player. This is essential if you train or compete more than twice a week.
30 minutes BEFORE EXERCISE and DURING EXERCISE
Add one level scoop (30g) per pint cold water
Consume 2 level scoops (60 grams) in 1 pint cold water. This can be doubled for large athletes and intense anaerobic (power) training
