Being a sport with multiple disciplines, triathlon requires a well thought out and structured nutritional plan to ensure that each sport is accounted for in both the recovery and preparation phases. It is also important for triathletes to focus on their nutritional intake during training or racing, with an aim to assist optimal performance. Athletes must achieve the right balance of nutrition for swimming, cycling and running as each will have slightly different requirements.
Whether it be Olympic distance, a sprint triathlon or even an Ironman, endurance enhancing supplements will have a beneficial effect on overall performance. Both fast and slow release carbohydrates can be used before competing or training to ensure energy levels are in the optimal range. Electrolytes and caffeine, such as in our Energy Elite & Caffeine gels, may also have a beneficial influence on energy levels. It's also recommended to include a mix of proteins, carbohydrates and vitamins to aid in recovery.
As triathlons are often endurance events, why not check out our Energy & Endurance range which has a selection of supplements aimed at enhancing stamina, energy and hydration.
