Sports Nutrition for Performance – Carbohydrate before and during Exercise

In the last post I described a current theory of fatigue during exercise that seems to best explain what occurs during exercise. In the next series of posts, I’ll examine how you can use nutrition to delay fatigue and improve performance. In this first post, I’ll look at carbohydrate and how maximising what you can get during endurance exercise will improve performance. I’ll assume at this point that you have already read the posts on carbohydrate and fatigue. If not I’d strongly suggest you read these first.
