Energy supply during endurance competitions

Energy supply during endurance competitions
Central performance factor

The longer a competition or training unit lasts, the more decisive the energy supply becomes. Even the best engine stops when the tank is empty!

Carbohydrates & Fat
Basically, the body has two main energy sources: carbohydrates and lipids. While body fat, even in the best-trained professional athletes, still amounts to several kilograms and thus represents a high energy reserve, the storage capacity for carbohydrates is limited. These are temporarily stored as so-called glycogen in the muscles and liver. Studies show that for most athletes these maximum carbohydrate reserves in muscle and liver (glycogen stores) are in the range of only approx. 500g glycogen. However, each gram means an about three times higher, temporary body weight gain, as glycogen is stored in the body under water retention.

Intensity decides
Trained athletes metabolise fatty acids efficiently in low intensity ranges for energy use. However, lipid oxidation becomes increasingly difficult at higher intensities. The higher the intensity, the greater the proportion of carbohydrates in the energy metabolism. During peak power, the body almost exclusively burns carbohydrates, as these can be converted into energy more easily than fatty acids and require less oxygen.

Limited energy intake
Even with full glycogen stores its energy content is burnt about 90 minutes into competition, often earlier. In order to maintain performance, a targeted and needs-based carbohydrate supply is therefore crucial for activities lasting more than 90 minutes. The limiting factor, however, is that carbohydrates cannot be absorbed or metabolized in any quantity per time unit. Depending on the type of sport and the physiological conditions of the athlete, it is assumed that the absorption capacity is usually between 60-90 g carbohydrates per hour. This also depends to a large extent on individual and situational tolerance, as the absolute metabolic rate of carbohydrates can be quite higher at up to 120 g per hour. When cycling, for example, energy absorption and digestion are easier than when running, where the constant shocks cause a higher gastrointestinal stress. Nevertheless, practical findings from top-level sport suggest that the absorption capacity of carbohydrates can be trained under stress. 

Carbohydrate sources
From an energetic point of view, it is basically irrelevant where the ingested carbohydrates come from.
«Sport drinks» provide well-tolerated carbohydrates, and no chewing is hindering breathing.
Advantage: Easy handling, "All in one" (CHO, electrolytes, fluid)

«Gels» provide quickly available carbohydrates, without chewing and with low intake volume. Fluid should/must be provided separately.
Advantage: Practical handling, energy intake is independent of fluid ingestion

«Energy bars» provide fast and slow-available carbohydrates. They are particularly recommended for extended durations/distances, especially at slightly lower intensities.
Advantage: beneficial for gastrointestinal function

In practice, athletes mainly use drinks and gels for shorter endurance activities, while for longer strains (bike marathon, Ironman etc.) the proportion of solid food is becoming increasingly important.

Conclusion:
At competition loads from 90min on, an optimal carbohydrate supply is crucial for performance. However, the intake should be initiated earlier on. For optimal performance we recommend dosages of 60-80 g carbohydrates per hour. Pay attention to a regular energy supply, and also orientate your fluid intake according to your thirst feeling. Sport drinks, gels and energy bars are proven carbohydrate sources, which are often used in combination depending on duration, intensity and personal preferences. The higher the intensity and the longer the activity, the more important is their gastrointestinal tolerance. The intended competition food and carbohydrate intake should be tested in advance during training and, where possible, further optimized. Please read also the related articles below, especially ELECTROLYTES and FLUID REPLACEMENT. Wherever the carbohydrate stores lead to a limitation of performance over time, also fat metabolism (lipid oxidation) should be specifically trained.

Nutrition cross-country skiing

For a new personal best in your next cross-country skiing event

Whether skating or classic style, leisure sportsman or top athlete: cross-country skiing is one of the most popular and attractive endurance sports in winter. However, anyone who wants to perform at their best on the cross-country ski slopes needs more than just perfect conditions, serious training, top equipment and excellent technique: the more ambitious a cross-country skier is, the more central the specific sports nutrition becomes! A correctly chosen, carefully coordinated nutritional strategy determines whether a cross-country skier can maintain his or her top performance right up to the finish line - or whether lactate in the legs or an energy hole in the middle of a competition forces the athlete to slow down or even give up. For maximum performance in the cross-country ski run, the following points should be observed:

In advance: Filling up glycogen stores
Long cross-country training sessions in the cold as well as challenging competitions lasting more than 90 minutes wear out the body. Filled glycogen stores therefore form the crucial basis for reaching one's goal. Carboloading with a highly concentrated carbohydrate drink the day before a competition or a long training session is of great benefit. Ideally suited: CARBO LOADER, a sports drink specially developed for replenishing glycogen stores. Also important: a balanced breakfast based on slowly available carbohydrates such as oatmeal, porridge or graham bread. POWER PORRIDGE provides a tasty, quickly prepared and long-lasting meal before hard training or running.

Liquid supply during exercise
Anyone who is exercising over a longer period of time would do well to compensate for the loss of fluids and electrolytes with sports drinks. High-quality sports drinks provide the body with electrolytes and energy in addition to liquid.

• Generally speaking, COMPETITION is the drink of choice for endurance activities, as it is acid-free and only mildly flavoured. It is extremely well tolerated even at high dosages.
• In contrast, LONG ENERGY 10% scores with a protein addition of 10%, making the drink ideal for intensive strength-focused endurance training or very long activities.
• For those disliking cold drinks in winter: sports drinks such as COMPETITION or SPORT TEA are also suitable for hot water preparation and consumption.
• Cross-country skiers who want to train with reduced calories may do without energy-containing sports drinks and prefer our low-calorie electrolyte drinks such as ELECTROLYTES or LOW CARB BURNER instead. These are very suitable for fat metabolism training.

Energy supply during competition: observe blood sugar curve
Carbohydrate products based on glucose and sucrose, so-called fast sugars, quickly enter the bloodstream and cause a rapid insulin response during their metabolisation. Even though rapid availability is desirable, a regular supply is necessary to avoid blood sugar fluctuations. The following tips will help you to maintain constant blood glucose levels:

• Drink regularly from your sports drink is particularly important in the cold! The body also loses a lot of fluid through breathing in cold conditions. In order to cover the increased energy requirement caused by the cold, the COMPETITION sports drink can also be prepared in higher concentrations. This will provide sufficient energy, even if the drinking volume is slightly less than in hot weather conditions.
• During competition it is recommended to use LIQUID ENERGY GELS, as these gels do not require chewing and therefore do not hinder breathing as much. Furthermore, due to the high sugar concentration the gels practically cannot freeze, unlike bars.
• OAT PACK or CEREAL ENERGY BARS are recommended for amateur athletes who don't fight for seconds and like to eat solid food on the cross-country ski slope. These tasty bars provide long-lasting energy. Although they remain easier to chew than most bars, even at sub-zero temperatures, they should still be worn close to the body.
• An alternative to bars or gels is offered by the POWER GUMS fruit gums, which are relatively cold-resistant and therefore easy to chew, convenient and can be taken in portions. Besides 58 g carbohydrates they also contain 150 mg caffeine (approx. 1 ½ cups of coffee) per 10 pieces.

Tips for ambitious competitors
With increasing exercise duration, fatigue increases and the ability to coordinate and concentrate decreases. However, in a technically demanding sport such as cross-country skiing, clean and economical technology is of great importance, especially at high intensity and increasing competition duration. Therefore, it is recommended to take the ACTIVATOR 200 Caffeine Shot shortly before the start or, depending on the duration of the race, at the latest towards the last hour of competition: The drinking ampoule contains 200 mg caffeine in free form as well as from guarana, mate and green tea.

Fast regeneration
Immediately after the competition it is important to think about the next training session! A high-quality regeneration supplement supplies the body with fluid and electrolytes, fills the glycogen stores and helps to regenerate the muscle damage caused by exertion. Ideally suitable: PRO RECOVERY. The highly professional regeneration product with protein and carbohydrates is lactose-free and contains no artificial sweeteners. To be prepared with water.

Interview Ramon Zenhäusern

«Between two runs I eat some pasta or a HIGH ENERGY BAR Salty+Nuts»

He is the one «on the top» of all the slalom riders. With his two-meter height, Swiss ski racer Ramon Zenhäusern is literally standing out. Especially when ending up on the top of a podium, as was recently the case at the 2019 World Ski Championships in Åre (team) or the 2018 Olympic Games in Pyeongchang (gold with the team, silver in the individual race). We were able to meet the charming Swiss for a short interview and find out about his nutrition strategy before important races.

Ramon, what are your plans for the upcoming season?

My goals are always the same: I want to stay as healthy as possible and have fun while racing. And if that is given, I am convinced that good results will follow. I also try to continuously develop and improve my skills.

Do you have a favourite race that you are already looking forward to?

My favourite races are principally the races in Switzerland: Adelboden and Wengen. There I can really feel how the fans push me to a top performance!

What does your breakfast look like on race day?

Before an important race, I make sure that I eat a balanced breakfast. That means: A good mix of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. That's why I usually eat my way through the breakfast buffets.

Do you have enough time to eat between two runs?

Although I would have enough time between the runs to eat, I am usually so nervous that I don't eat a lot. But in order to have enough energy for the second run, I have a little meal or a snack. I usually eat some pasta and/or a HIGH ENERGY BAR Salty+Nuts from SPONSER.

Which SPONSER products do you like best?

With my size I burn an enormous amount of calories on a training day on the glacier at 3000 m above sea level. Therefore, it is essential that I quickly recharge my energy stores with a protein or a recovery shake. Immediately before a competition I take a LIQUID ENERGY GEL and drink an ISOTONIC sports drink.

Is there a sports nutrition product that still needs to be invented for you and your preferences?

No at all! SPONSER has such a wide range of products that every athlete will be satisfied. I am perfectly happy with SPONSER!

Which menu do you prefer to celebrate your victories and medals with?

I don't really have a special winners' menu, but with a Fondue Chinoise you can always make me happy.
