Our expert says:
If the training regime is requiring more energy from you as from other training surfaces you have to make sure you supply the body with those additional calories (energy). I suggest you train with a heart rate monitor to see what you are expending. Stay with the energy drinks while you are training as they provide instant carbs and hydration, but take sips every 10 or 15 minutes rather than down a bottle. Also, after the training it is best to replace the lost carbs with some quick carbs (high GI) and best if you use a supplement with a bit of protein therein as well – check with your pharmacy they will recommend such combo liquid products to you. Only thereafter – the 2hrs is perfect- follow with your dinner – the sweet potato is fantastic as it is a low GI carb, the veggies are supply you with fiber, vitamins and minerals – add some broccoli (green vegs) as well and lastly do add some lean protein like fish or chicken.
Enjoy your training – you are on the right track!
