Timing Intake

An outstanding athletic performance requires a proper nutrition strategy. Sports nutrition supplies sufficient fuel and fluids and provides nutrients for regeneration and muscle development. Sports nutrition should be well tolerated, convenient and tasty. Whether during a competition or daily workout routine, SPONSER®’s broad selection of products provides high quality fuel at the right time and in the optimal dose. Timing is particularly important for endurance sports. Most products have labels indicating the appropriate time for ingestion: PREPARE, BEFORE, DURING, AFTER. Select the tabs for further information on timing your intake.

PREPARE (PREPARATION/COMPETITION)

So-called «PREPARE» products are taken over a short or longer period of time. They meet the increased nutritional requirements of typically deficient nutrients and replenish body stores. Most PERFORMANCE OPTIMIZERS are used as PREPARE products. In contrast to «BEFORE» products, the exact time of intake is usually of minor importance.

BEFORE

«BEFORE» products focus on replenishing energy and fluid stores before a workout (either just before or several hours in advance) to enable optimal performance. Energy requirements are met with solid or liquid foods. Before long-lasting endurance workouts, protein should be consumed along with carbohydrates. This ensures that both batteries are recharged and muscles are nourished.

For certain PERFORMANCE OPTIMIZERS, like caffeine, timing is of key importance. However, «BEFORE» recommendations may vary for weightlifting or muscle development phases (compare with YOUR GOAL).

Consult the YOUR SPORT section for more information.

DURING

Energy expenditure and loss of fluids combined with muscle strain and enhanced circulation ultimately lead to reduced performance.

«DURING» products mainly supply carbohydrates, electrolytes and fluid. They enable longer and more intense workouts and delay the time of muscle exhaustion. Sports drinks, energy gels and bars of SPONSER® are an ideal and tasty choice for this purpose. Timing may vary for weightlifting, muscle development phases and ultra-endurance.

Consult the YOUR SPORT section for more information.

AFTER

After a workout, the body recovers. Carbohydrates help replenish empty glycogen stores. Protein supports muscle repair. This shortens the time of regeneration and encourages adaption processes to maximize training success. Many endurance athletes are oblivious to the importance of protein in terms of recovery and muscle maintenance. «AFTER» recommendations may vary for weightlifting or during muscle development phases (See section YOUR GOAL).

Consult the YOUR SPORT section for more information.
