Prolonged exercise performance or high intensity intermittent exercise depends on the availability of muscle glycogen. Therefore, it is important to maximize the carbohydrate reserves before a competition while ensuring that carbohydrates are consumed during prolonged efforts to replenish the energy reserves for our muscles. The Etixx Natural Oat Bar is suitable for both before and during exercise. Before exercise, it can be used to complete and maximize carbohydrate reserves. This should be combined with your carbohydrate-rich diet before a competition or strong training to ensure the loading of your energy sources. During prolonged resistance or high intensity exercise it is also important to take carbohydrates to replenish the fuel reserves that you spend. If carbohydrates are not consumed during prolonged or intense efforts, your reserves of muscle glycogen will be depleted after approx. 90 min.
The amount of carbohydrates you must take during the exercise depends on the duration of the session or competition.
Exercises <1h: it is not necessary to consume carbohydrates during exercise
Exercises 1-2h: 30 g of carbohydrates per hour of exercise (1 bar)
Exercises 2-3h: 60 g of carbohydrates per hour of exercise (2 bars)
Exercises> 2.5-3h: up to 90g of carbohydrates per hour of exercise (3 bars)
Etixx natural oatmeal sports bars not only contain 30g of carbohydrates, but also contain 10% more fat than the Etixx Energy Sport Bars. Therefore they are ideal to consume during the first part of long-term efforts of less intensity. This is because the energy from the fat will be released more slowly and over an extended period of time. The added fat also helps to have a greater feeling of fullness. Who can benefit from the Etixx Natural Oat Bar? Etixx Natural Oat Bar offers a durable energy supply and therefore can be good for consumption during endurance competitions or during team sports and racket. It can also be beneficial for athletes who perform intensive training sessions for several hours.
