To maximize positive adaptations and recover better from your training it is important to provide your body with all essentials it needs. Fueling is the most critical part of both performance gains and body composition improvements. This is the calories you consume right before the training, during and immediately after (within 30 minutes). Calories consumed in fueling are less nutrient rich with the main purpose to supply and replenish your primary fuel source for endurance sports—glycogen.

This is EVERYTHING for the training athletes. Dialing your fueling is essential to reach your athletic potential. Proper fueling enables you to:

  1. Perform at your best during training or racing
  2. Recover faster and prepare for upcoming sessions

Hydration is another part of fueling and deserves a separate chapter. We do not discuss hydration in this chapter however it can be accessed here:
