Sports nutrition for Crossfit.
You know BYE! Nutrition as a brand for endurance sports but also for more explosive and short duration sports you can use BYE! Nutrition can also be used for more explosive and short term sports. Take Crossfit for example.
Crossfit is a sport where several aspects occur: you need strength, explosiveness, fitness and speed. In the Workout of the day (WOD) everything comes forward. To get the most out of it and prevent injuries the right nutrition is very important.
It often happens that you go straight to the gym (box) from work or elsewhere and don't have enough time for a proper meal. Often your last meal is already several hours ago, so you start your workouts with little fuel. Or you do have a good meal before your workout, but are too tight on your workout which can lead to abdominal discomfort. Do you want to get more out of your workouts, recover faster and have less muscle pain? Then the right nutrition before, during and after your workout is very important.
Many Crossfitters then think primarily of protein. Proteins are good for recovery and muscle building, but proteins do not function as fuel. To get the most out of your workout, it is important that your body has enough fuel to perform. Before and during the workout, it is therefore better to choose carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are the most important and fastest fuel for the body.
But what is the best way to do this if you have little time for a workout? At moments like this you can choose a sports bar. These bars contain the right mix of carbohydrates and give you the right fuel to get the most out of your workout, without the nutrition getting in the way. At BYE! Nutrition we have developed our EndurancebarThis bar contains fast and slow carbohydrates and releases its energy gradually over 60 minutes. Which makes it ideal to use before a WOD. The Endurancebar We have 3 delicious flavors and is 100% natural!
During the WOD's it is best to choose an Isotonic sports drink. An Isotonic sports drink is a sports drink containing carbohydrates and minerals in the right mix. This way the drink is quickly and easily absorbed by your body. Besides carbohydrates, the drink also contains minerals. Minerals are important because every time your muscles tighten minerals are used to cause this movement. Once you are deficient in minerals this movement can be worsened and cramping can even occur. The Isotonic sports drink from BYE! Nutrition is available in 2 different fresh flavors: red fruit and lemon.
Once you have finished training it is best to choose a mix of carbohydrates, minerals and proteins. For light workouts, only proteins will suffice. But as soon as the training gets heavier, a mix will promote recovery the best. For this you need carbohydrates, minerals and proteins. You can find these in the ALL-IN-ONE Recovery drink of BYE! Nutrition. This drink gives your body the opportunity to recover so you are ready to give your maximum effort for the next workout.
So BYE! Nutrition is not only suitable as cycling nutrition or other endurance sports, but can be used during any sports activity!
