17 May Proper Nutrition During Training and Competition
by Dr. Matt Fontaine This article will detail important supplements. The following is a short but essential list of supplements: magnesium glycinate, glutamine, a good B vitamin, essential fatty acids, vitamin B12. Why proper gut health and nutrition are critical in optimizing health and human performance. How to ensure you get plenty of plenty of hydration. Why you need to make sure to consume 0.8-1.0 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day. How to increase your calorie count to match the demands of training. Why pro cyclists need to be as lean and light as possible, as does the bike, without sacrificing strength and power output or stability. And don’t forget the beer. I recommend Samual Adams Boston Lager, a great recovery drink after those long, long rides to nowhere.
