Endurance sport refers to sporting activities undertaken by individual athletes in which key muscles are exercised at maximal intensity for a prolonged period of time. Examples of endurance sports include triathlon, cycling, running events from 5km through to the marathon and swimming.
Endurance athletes devote much time to their training, pursuing many of laps in the pool or tracking many kilometres of running or cycling each day. No matter how they train, endurance athletes complete a great volume of training. This places strain on their bodies physically and mentally meaning that diet and supplementation is very important.
We love endurance at Bulk Nutrients, so much so that we work closely with the amazing Sole Motive team responsible for annual endurance events across Australia. We sponsor their events such as Run Melbourne, the Sunset Series and Run the Rock.
When competing in long endurance events such as Run Melbourne replenishing carbs and electrolytes is vital to keep the body fuelled with energy to keep going
Electrolyte Plus improves hydration by replacing glycogen and electrolytes during exercise whereas Recuper8 assists endurance and enhances recovery for those competing in gruelling events.
Supplementing with Joints Complex will aid in maintenance and repair of joints while taking a protein such as Protein Matrix+ will help muscles recover faster between training sessions.
