Before, during and after events, be sure to hydrate with cool liquids in small amounts,early and often. According to Les Wong, Shaklee's VP of Health Sciences, Shaklee Corporation, Shaklee has been working with Elite Athletes for over 30 years. Shaklee Powered Athletes have won over 100 medals in the Winter and Summer Olympic games along with many other elite athletic competitions. Sports
drinks like Shaklee Performance can be especially helpful but should
first be tested in training before use in competition.
Pre-Event: Nutritious foods including sandwiches, salads, fruits, and Shaklee Cinch Meal Bars or Snack Bars are best consumed 2 - 4 Hours before exercise. More rapidly absorbed Nutritional Shakes including Cinch Shakes or Meal Shakes may be consumed as little as 1 Hour before a event depending on an individual’s digestive comfort. Continue hydration right up to the start of training or competition (Energy Chews may be considered an energy boost 15-30 minutes prior to competition.)
During: Continue hydration every 15 - 30 minutes, depending on conditions. For events lasting more than an hour, nutrition bars, gels and rapidly digested carbohydrate rich foods, including fruits like bananas, apples and bagels, may be consumed in addition to fluids.
Post Event: Protein, carbohydrate, and fluids should be consumed immediately after exercise to maximize muscle energy refueling, muscle repair and ,muscle rebuilding. Physique is proven to trigger the body’s anabolic state and enhance the body’s recovery process in response to exercise. Continue to hydrate post-exercise and consume additional Physique (or other foods) an hour or two after exercise, especially if you have daily or multiple workout sessions.
