Achievement of maximized energy levels for sporting performanceAccording to a recently concluded study by researchers at the University of Hertfordshire, athletes who are training for the London Marathon can expect to deliver dramatic performance by having a close look at what they are eating and drinking.

It was found by Dr Peter Jones, a Senior Lecturer at the University’s School of Life Sciences that there are some food products and drinks, which can help sportsmen attain maximized energy levels while participating at competitive events.

From News-Medical.Net:

“The improvements in performance were only seen when the carbohydrate loaded was low in GI,” said Matt. “The mechanism behind this may be due to the increases seen in blood glucose throughout the time trial.”

Another research project undertaken by postgraduate student, Nick Tiller, found that athletes could maximise their performance through drinking mixed carbohydrate drinks, as opposed to those containing single carbohydrates only.

“This is important because, for example, if you drink commercially available sports drinks, you can only ingest 70 grammes of maltodextrin per hour, which may not be enough to maximise your performance,” said Dr Jones. “But if you supplement this with, for example fructose, you can open up two channels and increase the amount of glucose available to your body.

“There is no doubt but that the foods that we eat have a significant effect on performance. Those in serious training need to give this more thought if they are to maximise their performance.”

It is worthwhile to note that steroids, just like these food products and drinks, can also offer great gains to sportsmen when taken as per medical advice and instructions. Anabolic steroids such as Winstrol, Deca Durabolin, and Clomid have already proved that they are second to none when it comes to offering advantages to sportsmen for delivering amazing performances on a consistent basis. However, it must always be remembered that steroids and sports must not be mixed in the absence of qualified and complete knowledge so that optimum benefits can be achieved from them.
