I'd recommend taking 'Jak 3D' Pre-ride, or any of those Nitro supplements will get you going, munch on low sugar energy bars during the ride, take a WPI protein post ride....
Jak 3D and similar contains banned substances if you're an athlete who undergoes drug testing. It also is about to be banned in Au as they are restricting DMAA.
..... that would explain why Jak 3D works so well I guess !! what are the ingredients in it that are on ASDA's list ?
Outlined in the article.
crikey! as apart of my racing license it says on the back " In signing this licence, the holder is subject to the regs of the UCI & Cycling Aust and accepts any drug test for which they provide."
Unbeleivable. I knew it was about to be banned in Australia but wasn't sure why. Same thing happened with a protein supplement about 15 years ago when I competed in powerlifting, a track runnerwas suspended then the product was banned in Australia.
Geranium oil I believe. Not sure on the technical name. If you're a competetive athlete you shouldn't be using it. If you're not competing you shouldn't even consider it, or any kind of pre workout potion in my view.
Using Jak3d means one will be hitting adrenal burn out in due time. I see it all the time in the fitness industry.
i sometimes mix in some Glucodin with my post-ride drinks if I'm really wiped out. Works nicely for me.
I take a glucodin tablet about every twenty minutes during a ride - - always got some in the back pocket.
Ive been vegan for 11 years now. No protein powders or recovery shakes. Just real food. I ran a pb for 10 000m on Sunday with a time of 34:19. Im 35. Ripe spotty bananas are my fav meal.
I eat 600g + per day of simple sugars. Im single digit body fat all year long. This year have riden about 150km a week on average with about 20km a week of jogging. Genetically I have 'overweight genes' too. Its ALL about eating low fat, low protein, high carb.
This is my GF. She does even less training and is in better shape and health then when she was 18. She is another crazy high carb low fat low protein vegan.
This is a photo of me in NYC a few weeks ago. I only know a handful of guys that eat as much simple sugars and low fat/protein as I do. We all look the same.
Our fav smoothy meal.
