Give all you have up to exhaustion
Cycling is about a good balance between endurance and sprinting ability. Depending on the terrain, route profile, weather and length of the route, a different mix is required. This is what makes this sport so fascinating and challenging. The main focus here is on the energy supply and at the same time you should have as little body fat as possible. Every gram too much costs unnecessarily energy.
Nevertheless, you need dry muscle mass in good shape, so that you can pedal accordingly quickly. In the past, only carbohydrate intake was paid attention to, but today we know that protein and amino acids are at least as important. The longer the workout lasts, fat burning becomes more and more important, so this aspect should also be taken into account in the diet and supplementation. Especially under intense loads, however, you always have to keep an eye on regeneration, because here the training pays off.
In the following we give you a recommendation which products can support you and when you should take them. We assume a normal training or competition day. If you are doing sports at a different time of day, you should adjust the times accordingly.
Pro Energy Gel
A classic for years, optimized by us once again for more endurance and sprint speed.
60% carbohydrate content in the product
optimal ratio of 7:1:1 (maltodextrin, fructose, glucose)
pleasant, naturally sweet taste without straining.
150 mg salt per serving
One of the biggest false myths is that endurance athletes should focus mainly on your carbohydrate intake. At the Tour de France you could see that the pros ate a lot of protein bars before the race and only took energy gels for the last 10 to 20 km.
Afterwards, you drank a protein drink for regeneration. It used to be different but the professionals know what they are doing and the principle also applies to ambitious recreational athletes.
Quality is important to me, because if I do my best during training, I want to support success with good products.

Especially with so many games we do in a season, it is important to regenerate optimally. The right supplements really help to give your best.
