Sports nutrition for ambitious road bike & MTB riders.
In addition to the appropriate accessories in the form of shoes, helmet and goggles, every cyclist who wants to make longer training rides needs the appropriate nutritional supplement. Since a lot of calories are burned and energy reserves are used up during athletic cycling, one should prevent an undersupply by taking nutritional supplements during the ride. After training or a competition, you should also actively contribute to regeneration with the appropriate sports nutrition.
Energy gel for cycling or triathlon
Very popular with endurance athletes of all kinds are so-called energy gels. Gels have the advantage that the body can process the nutrients they contain more quickly than with a bar. Especially for cyclists, power gels are very common because they are very suitable for consumption while cycling. The gel can be simply pulled out of the jersey pocket while pedaling, torn open and then consumed. Thus, you can even have both hands on the handlebars when just consuming and concentrate fully on the training or the race.
During or after sports: drinking powder and effervescent tablets
Essential for athletic cyclists in all areas is a sufficient supply of carbohydrates during the ride. For this purpose, we have a wide selection of drinking powders that, once dissolved in water, turn into a full-bodied energy drink. The advantage that these drinks bring is that they are easy to carry in your normal drinking bottle and can therefore be integrated into your regular fluid intake. After training or competition, it makes sense to take an iso drink or a magnesium powder to support regeneration.
Protein bars and energy bars: classic dietary supplements
The handy bars from manufacturers such as PowerBar or Dextro Energy are well known. These are suitable regardless of the type of sport for all who value providing the body with the right amount of protein. Energy bars, on the other hand, are mainly used during the ride to provide the body with sufficient nutrients, especially carbohydrates. For this purpose, the Oat Bars from Nutrixxion are particularly suitable, which are well tolerated due to the high proportion of whole grain oat flakes.
