Nutrition & Hydratation

43 advice
The festive period, weddings, birthdays, etc. lead to a succession of rich meals. They often involve an excess amount of fat and sugar, creating an accumulation of toxins in the body that leads to various problems such as generalised fatigue or digestive pain, etc. with, in general, a corresponding increase in weight.
You can run for fun or race over a variety of distances. Whatever your event, diet is very important and mustn't be overlooked. However a diet will not be the same for a 10 km compared to a marathon.
We strongly advise athletes wishing to complete their training programme, or to simply play a match or attend trials under the best conditions, to follow the different nutritional strategies aiming to minimise water, mineral and energy loss after exercise.
Eating properly before and during exercise is all very well, but correctly managing your recovery is even better! Often ignored, the recovery stage in fact plays an essential role in rehydrating, restocking your energy reserves and muscle recovery. It also aims to get rid of lactic acid.
I am sure you have often heard people talking about recovery drinks, but do you know exactly why they are useful? What are the benefits, especially for a sport such as triathlon?
