The prestigious sports nutrition brand, which collaborates once again with the Epic Camí de Cavalls 360º, offers some recommendations so that participants can face the challenge in the best way and taking care of one of the aspects that most influence performance.
The advice of 226ers to face the Epic Camí de Cavalls 360º is divided into two facets: hydration on the one hand and carbohydrates on the other.
When it comes to hydration, 226ers encourages you to hydrate well before exercise, with a recommended amount of approximately 1.5 liters.
In addition, during the race you must maintain a regular intake of sodium between 250 and 500 mg per hour. This amount should be increased depending on the temperature and humidity of the day, according to the physiological needs of that particular athlete.
To achieve these hydration goals, 226ers recommends its following products: Hydra Zero (498 mg sodium), Isotonic Drink (98 mg sodium), Sub9 Salts (250 mg sodium) or Electrolytes (125 mg sodium).
Regarding carbohydrates, 226ers points out that you should maintain an intake of carbohydrates between 40 and 60 g per hour. This amount could be increased if the athlete is used to it and has a good tolerance.
In this case, the recommended products from their catalog are Energy Gel (18 g of carbohydrates, 2 or 3 units per hour), High Energy Gel (50 g of carbohydrates, 1 unit per hour), Isotonic Gel (22 g of carbohydrates, 2 units per hour) and the Race Day bar (25 g of carbohydrates, 2 units per hour).
