Motor Sport drivers and riders must be at the top of their physical and mental game to survive in the sport. Toyota’s F1 team doctor, Riccardo Ceccarelli, was once quoted as saying that grand prix racing was the most physically demanding sport in the world, with some drivers on par with the world’s best in aerobic ability, upper body and leg strength, and the ability to perform while dehydrated with a heart rate of up to 198 beats per minute.
Fitness training for Motor Sports includes two key areas: muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness, with intensity and focus areas dependant on the driver.
A good balance of a high-quality protein such as Protein Matrix+ after events and training combined with Recuper8 during events and training will assist with muscle growth, endurance, and recovery. Cognitone, when used once a day, can also assist with mental performance - helping the mind focus on the task at hand.
