As summer rolls in, it becomes more apparent that hydration is more important than ever! While the cold can push you past your limits and require plenty of hydration, it's much more forgiving on the human body than the heat! Hydration is just as necessary during winter as it is during summer, however, your bodies ability to cool itself down during summer is void! Your core temperature peaks and as the human body begins to overheat, it reacts in a similar fashion as a radiator does without Antifreeze!
I've come to realize that sodium is an essential part of the electrolyte makeup, however sugars just as valuable! The need for sugar and salt become apparent when pushing past your threshold, during any Ultramarathon! You'll notice that the standard cookie cutter aid station layout, for any Ultramarathon is as follows (Electrolytes, salty snacks, fruit with high sugar content, water, salty broth, etc.)!
During my training season, I've found that the VITALYTE PRE WORKOUT ENDURANCE FUEL, helps to not only keep me hydrated, but recover during my runs! Unlike any other electrolyte/endurance fuel out there, VITALYTE PRE WORKOUT ENDURANCE FUEL, supplies endurance athletes with just the right amount of sugars, electrolytes(Magnesium, Potassium, Calcium, Sodium), Vitamin A,B,C and BCAA's(Branch Chain Amino Acids) for recovery!
Typically, most endurance drinks avoid the use of BCAA's(Branch Chain Amino Acids) which are essential building blocks and help aid in the recovery of muscle tissue and tendons! These essential components are great in recovery drinks, but why wait til post competition/training to recover? Why not keep fully charged and train/compete at 100%, by repairing your muscle tissue and tendons while you compete/train? Remember, BCAA's not only build lean muscle mass, but help to recover, which is essential during any Ultramarathon!
This is a solid reason to try VITALYTE TRI-PHASE ENDURANCE PRE WORKOUT ENDURANCE FUEL! Remember, hydrating before training/racing is just as important as during! Be sure to hydrate with VITALYTE TRI-PHASE ENDURANCE PRE WORKOUT ENDURANCE FUEL, at least 30 minutes before competing/training and every 30 minutes thereafter! Water is just as essential, so be sure to hydrate with water in between! For instance, drink water every 5-10 minutes leading up to the 30 minutes, then replenish with the VITALYTE TRI-PHASE ENDURANCE PRE WORKOUT ENDURANCE FUEL! Thank you and enjoy those trails!
