Running

The physical demands of running require a structured nutritional plan to support and promote optimal levels of fitness. With the implementation of a structured training programme and detailed diet, runners can improve their performance dramatically.

Intro

Although running is one of the most popular means of improving fitness it is also one of the most gruelling. Often exercising on their own, runners must produce the commitment, dedication and energy to fulfil their training goals and improve their performance. The nature of an endurance sport like running causes the body to go through a great deal of stress in order for it to become fitter and more efficient when running. For athletes who run on a regular basis, it is important to ensure the body is provided with all the essential nutrients it requires to promote such physiological functions and improve fitness. The easiest way to ensure the body is always primed for exercise is to follow a structured training routine and a detailed nutritional plan which can be boosted with the addition of a number of sports supplements.

Helpful Tips

Energy to run

In addition to a well balanced diet, the two most important nutritional concerns of a runner should be the consumption of sufficient carbohydrates (to provide fuel for the body) and adequate fluid (to keep the body well hydrated). Unfortunately, these are the two most common aspects that most runners neglect, often resulting in premature fatigue and disappointing results. Tri-Carb is an extremely effective carbohydrate drink which can be consumed before, during and after exercise to supply energy and maintain hydration levels. Another product suitable for running is Exceed. Exceed has a number of ingredients that can help delay fatigue and increase energy production, an ideal combination for any runner.

Fuel to aid recovery and help growth

Within reason, the more quality time you spend training or competing, the more efficient and effective your body will be. Therefore, it is important to return your body to its normal resting state and ensure that your recovery from exercise is thorough and complete. Recovery XS combines protein, carbohydrates and a number of other excellent ingredients to help promote recovery after exercise. The nutrients included in Recovery XS have been proven to improve recovery and help the body repair itself from the damage incurred during intense exercise.

Improving performance

Once the basic components of your diet are in place, such as carbohydrates and proteins, it is useful to look at products that can enhance your performance and push your fitness beyond your opponents. Vitamin B Super Complex has been proven to be very effective for endurance athletes as it improves the body's ability to utilise stores of proteins, carbohydrates and fats for energy. They have also been shown to boost the immune system.

Looking after your body

Vitamins play a huge role in helping the body recover, stay healthy and also flush out any unwanted toxins or free radicals. A comprehensive multi vitamin such as Alpha Men (Super Multi Vitamin) should be a part of any serious athletes' daily supplementation. Avoiding injury or illness is extremely important for any athlete. The essential fatty acid content of NKO Krill Oil offers a variety of health benefits including reduced blood cholesterol and the promotion of healthier joints.
