Endurance Sports Nutrition-Fueling Guide

Words no athlete wants to experience: Bonk – Dehydration – Bloating – Cramps

If you are looking for some endurance sports nutrition and fueling insight, Hammer Nutrition provides a free resource, Guide to Success – Fueling Handbook which provides tips to improve your performances or just help you finish an event with a smile on your face. I wish I would have re-read it before the Boston marathon because I just might have eliminated those pesky cramps.

The handbook is broken up into the following chapters:

  • Replacement vs. Replenishment
  • Hydration – What you need to know
  • Electrolyte Replenishment
  • Proper Caloric Intake During Endurance Exercise
  • Recovery – A crucial component for athlete success
  • The Pre-Race Meal
  • The 10 Biggest Mistakes Endurance Athletes Make

Of course the guide will mention some Hammer Nutrition products throughout the document but nearly all of the information is beneficial even if you don’t use their products. Their knowledge sharing is based off of scientific studies as well as many years of working with athletes like us.

This is definitely something I need to remind myself to re-read at least once a year.

Don’t forget that each of us is unique and what works for one person may not work for another but I feel this guide provides a huge foundation to help you find what works best for you.

Check it out and let me know what you think of it.

Happy Training!
