The amount of carbohydrates that are available for energy is a key factor that determines performance in endurance and intermittent high-intensity exercise. Therefore, during exercises where carbohydrates can be depleted, it is important that you take extra fuel to maintain performance and avoid fatigue. This ensures that blood glucose levels are maintained during exercise and muscle glycogen is restored. Etixx Energy Sport Bar contains approx. 29 g of carbohydrates and is suitable for before and / or during exercise. It can be used before exercise as part of a carbohydrate loading strategy to ensure that muscle glycogen stores are maximized before a competition. Athletes who are preparing for a long and intense exercise should aim to eat a diet rich in carbohydrates in the days leading up to their competition and Etixx Energy Sport Bar is an excellent snack to include in this strategy. During competitions in which the demand for carbohydrates can deplete muscle glycogen, the consumption of carbohydrates during exercise is essential to maintain performance and minimize fatigue. Our carbohydrate reserves run out after approx. 90 minutes of exercise. How much carbohydrate should we consider?
Exercises <1h: it is not necessary to consume carbohydrates during exercise
Exercises 1-2h: 30 g of carbohydrates per hour of exercise (1 energy bar)
Exercises 2-3h: 60 g of carbohydrates per hour of exercise (2 energy bars)
Exercises> 2.5-3h: up to 90g of carbohydrates per hour of exercise (up to 3 energy bars)
