WHAT CHAMPIONS SAY
NUTRITION IS AN IMPORTANT PARAMETER IN ALL ENDURANCE SPORTS. Good nutrition helps regulate body weight – the power-to-weight ratio is important in endurance sports – but also assists in recuperating rapidly after exercise, as well as optimizing energy efficiency and preventing deficiencies in nutrients.
