Ideally its very critical to have a proper pre-race meal around 2hrs before your race. This should be a well-balanced meal consisting of stability carbohydrates, protein and good fats. A meal of around 400 Calories in size would be sufficient. As a pre-load 32Gi Endure Sports drink makes a fantastic pre-race drink due to the prolonged glucose release for a few hours. Ideally is should be consumed at least 60minutes prior to the start of the event. If you cannot consume that amount of fluid before an event you can take in a half a serving with less fluid or even make a slight concentrate. Test it in training first so that you experience it before race day.

The Endure range is suited to athletes that are performing at a more controlled pace, fat efficient athletes and those that are watching their weight.

The main cause of cramping is generally under trained muscles which are put under excessive stress. Ensure that during training, race conditions are simulated and that an holistic approach is given to your overall training program which should include speed work, hill work, strength and endurance. Training the muscles correctly to meet the race day needs is the first step in preventing cramping. Another reason for cramping are over hydration which would mean electrolyte level dilution. We recommend managing your fluid intake and cooling from the outside rather than the inside. Best is to consume a drink with carbohydrates and minerals to ensure proper fluid absorption. It’s not possible to replace all lost fluid so don’t overdo it. Dehydration can also trigger cramping and in this case again drink to thirst and listen the messages the body is giving you. If you do over consume fluid in a hot event it would be worth taking in additional salt intake to balance the body’s fluid to sodium ratio. One product of 32Gi’s that can truly assist with delaying the onset of muscle fatigue and cramping is 32Gi TruMag. TruMag is a unique patented slow release magnesium supplement. Magnesium has been medically and scientifically proven to delay the onset of muscle fatigue, assist with sleep and recovery and improve energy levels as well as immunity. Magnesium is a supplement every athlete should take due to the mineral lacking in our diets.
