Performance bang for your nutrition buck.
Updated: Jul 20
Tom, what are three nutrition habits that will make a significant difference to endurance performance?
I will consume more carbohydrates during training sessions that last more than 90 minutes.
Don’t be shy about hitting 75g/hr of carbohydrates during your key training sessions. The more carbohydrates you consume, the better you will perform.
I will not consider my training session complete until I have consumed a large meal containing protein, carbohydrates, fats and fruit/veggies, plus water.
Good recovery nutrition will replensih your fuel stores, repair your muscles, and rehydrate your body.
I will keep my fuel tank topped up during the week to keep me healthy, strong, and ready to train hard.
Food is your friend. Energy from food is vital for immune function, day-to-day vitality, and maximising your response to training.
