Endurance

By definition, endurance sports include sports where the task is to move over a longer period of time.
The sports nutrition of an endurance athlete is subject to certain specifics, similar to those of athletes who do bodybuilding for optimal muscle development, martial arts or other sports. Knowing these makes it easier for the endurance athlete to achieve maximum performance.
Nevertheless, in endurance sports the misconception is widespread that the consumption of carbohydrates is sufficient.

Important to know

Endurance sports are accompanied by immense substrate losses. The ambitious athlete should keep deficiency symptoms as low as possible through targeted sports nutrition and compensate for losses as quickly as possible in order to regenerate quickly and maximize performance in endurance sports.

  • In endurance sports one trains predominantly in the aerobic range
  • Carbohydrates are very important as a source of energy and the carbohydrate stores of the muscles must be replenished quickly after training
  • In the low heart rate range, fatty acids (depot fat and dietary fat) are also increasingly metabolised for kinetic energy.
  • Protein is needed after endurance training because it contributes to muscle repair or muscle maintenance.
  • Certain amino acids such as Glutamine and BCAAs are highly stressed during extreme endurance sports and should be replaced if necessary.
  • Important electrolytes leave the body through sweat and must be reabsorbed as quickly as possible
  • Certain Ergogenics such as Creatine have a performance-enhancing effect*

* 3g creatine daily increases the physical performance during high-speed training in the context of short-term intensive physical activity (sprints)
