Although running is one of the most popular means of improving fitness it is also one of the most gruelling. Often exercising on their own, runners must produce the commitment, dedication and energy to fulfil their training goals and improve their performance.
The nature of an endurance sport like running causes the body to go through a great deal of stress in order for it to become fitter and more efficient. For athletes who run on a regular basis, it is important to provide the body with all the essential nutrients it requires to promote such physiological functions and improve fitness.
Carbohydrates are the body's primary fuel source, therefore it is vital for runners to ensure they have consumed enough before a big race.
A slow-release carbohydrate source such as our Instant Oats should help to provide the body with the energy to complete the task at hand.
Another product suitable for running is Exceed. Exceed has a number of ingredients that can help delay fatigue and increase energy production, an ideal combination for any runner.
Our handy ENER:GELsare also a valuable addition to any serious runner’s arsenal. Easily transportable, they provide the fuel necessary to avoid energy depletion and avoid muscle fatigue.
Post-race, we recommend taking on board a combination high quality carbohydrates and protein to support the recovery process. Carbarley would be a great option for fast-acting carbohydrates and our Impact Whey Isolate would provide a rapid supply of high quality protein. For those who prefer to take just one supplement at a time, our RE:CHARGE is a highly effective and convenient alternative.
