Coconut oil – Have you heard!
Don’t forget about the healthy fats… Consumption of a high fat meal before exercise has been shown to alter substrate supply before exercise has been shown to alter substrate supply before exercise and leads to increased free fatty acid (FFA) levels in the blood, which could then increase lipid. metabolism during exercise and either preserve some of your limited glycogen stores or at least attenuate the normal rate glycogen depletion.

What type of fat is best? The answer is simple: medium-chain tryglicerides (MCT’s) These fats bypass the long four-to six hour digestion time of many other fats, and are instead readily available as a form of usable energy. Most athletes can tolerate 100 – 150 calories of MCTs without gastric distress, and the easiest way to get thes is via coconut milk, coconut oil or MCT oil.

Please note that the study referenced above involved eating the pre-workout meal 4 hours prior. In addition to the meal recommendations earlier, if you’r competing in a long race especially an Ironman or ultra-endurance event, then consider including 3 – 6 ounces of full-fat coconut milk, a heaping tablespoon of coconut oil or a level tablespoon of MCT oil with your preface meal.

What are the benefits of a proper bike fit?

A proper bike fit is essential for injury prevention and maximized efficiency.  An optimal position on the bike will allow for greater comfort and enjoyment while riding.  All bodies are different and your position on the bike should reflect your biomechanics.

 

Who can benefit from a bike fit? 

Generally, if you are serious enough to clip into a bike, you will benefit from a bike fit.  Whether you are a professional or recreational rider, getting the proper bike fit is an effective yet economical way to improve performance.

 

How long does a Bike fitting take? 

An average fit with fitting lasts 90 minutes.  However, if you have major adjustments or component changes, the fit may be longer.

Weekend of February 7 – 8, 2015

Endurance Fuel!
No matter what level, we all need to do one thing: Hydrate
Water helps to replenish, energize and restore your body. Especially when you sweat. Permanence and achievement matter. And science proves that the property hydrated athlete will outperform the others. That why it is key for you to keep your hydration on target during training. You need to keep yourself hydrated with a blend of electrolytes, carbohydrates and BCAA’s. If you do so, it will optimize osmosis, reduces gut distress, sustain power and improve recovery. Now that you get the point, and what hydrate means, lets start outperforming others.
Therefore, here is the schedule for this weekend:

Saturday,  February 7, 2015

 – Time: 7:30 am
 – Duration: 2 – 3 hours

Congratulations to all of the athletes who raced this weekend at Celebration Half and Full Marathon!
 
Head for the Hills! 
Hill running has become a popular activity for fat-burning Hit cardio workouts, but research out of South Dakota State University shows that it also can improve long-distance running. In the study conducted at Avera Sports Institute in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, runners in the hill group performed 30 – sec intervals on treadmills seta tat a 10 percent incline twice weekly for six weeks. By the end of the experiment, running economy improved in this group to the same extent as it did with longer intervals on a level grade – a training method already proved effective for distance runners. Therefore, when a hill workout his prescribed, please follow it as much as possible, cause it will help you in shelling run,
