Feel free to contact us directly or visit our store in the centre of Antwerp.
CARBOHYDRATES: AN ENERGY SOURCE
Your energy needs to be filled with carbohydrates to keep training without feeling “empty”. As an endurance athlete, it is therefore very important to take enough carbohydrates before and during exercise. It is found in rice, bread, pasta, legumes and various fruits.
To ensure that your energy level remains optimal, we recommend supplements such as E’lyte Drink.
After training, it is crucial to let your body recover naturally. Failure to do so could lead to unsatisfactory performance. An ideal complement to restore your body is the E’lyte during your workout and a milkshake after your workout.
AVOID ACIDIFICATION BY BETA-ALANINE
Beta-alanine is an ideal supplement that allows you to go further. The most important positive properties are :
- Delays muscle acidification
- Improves recovery
- Avoids muscle damage
As a beta-alanine supplement, we recommend SynTech Beta-alanine.
An energy booster allows you to get a little more energy from your workout. Especially on a smaller day, this booster provides additional motivation and perseverance.
SAW de Trec Nutrition is the best energy booster at the best price/quality ratio.
