 NUTRITION CAN BE THE KEY FACTOR DEFINING PERFORMANCE

To have the maximum power during training, you must supply your body continuously with the right and sufficient amount of fluids and carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are the primary and fastest fuel source for athletes, and can be stored as energy reserves in our body as glycogen in the liver and muscles.

WANT TO ACHIEVE PERSONAL BESTS? THEN MAKE SURE TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT ENERGY SOURCES.

To perform at your personal best, your body must be continuously supplied with the right type and quantity of carbohydrates during exercise. But how? PowerBar® ISOACTIVE and ISOMAX Isotonic Sports Drink, ENERGIZE Bar and WAFER, POWERGEL® and POWER GEL® SHOTS contain a specially developed carbohydrate mix for endurance sports: the C2MAX Dual Source Carb Mix, features a specially developed ratio of glucose and fructose sources.

The scientifically recommended intake of carbohydrate during intense exercise is as follows.

Exercise durationCarbohydrates per hour
30-60 min Rinsing of mouth with a carbohydrate solution
1-2 hours Up to 30g
2-3 hours Up to 60g
More than 3 hours Up to 90g

A mixture of sugars, as for example contained in C2MAX products, will ensure muscles are able to obtain the maximum amount of energy from carbohydrate per time unit during exercise. Try out different quantities of carbohydrate during training to find out the optimal amount and timing to suit your individual needs. It is important to remember that the highest tolerated carbohydrate intake (in grams per hour) differs widely from person to person. However, it is possible to ‘train’ the gut to adapt to higher amounts of carbohydrate. Therefore the following strategy is recommended for focused competition preparation: during the training phase, gradually increase the quantity of the optimal carbohydrate sources over several days using sport drinks, gels or bars in order to establish your personal limit. If the amount of energy tolerated per time unit can be increased this can improve performance during prolonged endurance activities.
