Optimize concurrent carbohydrate and fat oxidation pathways to achieve stable energy, and preserved muscle glycogen. Additionally, the implementation of this approach seeks to mitigate the occurrence of gastrointestinal disturbances during high-intensity racing and threshold training sessions.
SFuels has meticulously designed its training and racing fueling products to optimize the body's ability to use the appropriate fuel sources (fats, carbohydrates, and glutamine) precisely when needed - this is the Right Fuel Right Time principle. SFuels RACE+ takes the foundation laid by SFuels TRAIN and enhances it by introducing quickly digestible starch-based carbohydrates (void of simple sugars like glucose). This addition (to the extended substrates, in SFuels TRAIN) serves to train both the gut and metabolic systems to efficiently utilize a combination of fats, carbohydrates, and glutamine as fuel sources during high-intensity performance. SFuels recommends:
The use of SFuels TRAIN (which is low to no carb) exclusively during the initial 30-60 minutes of training or racing - before switching to SFuels RACE+.
This strategy is employed to mitigate the potential for blood sugar spikes, and insulin response to negatively impact fat oxidation. By applying this approach - we can optimize allowing glucose to enter muscle cells (without insulin).
This sets the groundwork for an ideal scenario where glucose and fatty acids are transported and oxidized concurrently, supporting muscle glycogen preservation.
SFuels RACE+ drink has played a pivotal role as the racing fuel of choice in the campaigns of numerous professional athletes. Notably, it has been instrumental in achieving remarkable successes such as Olympic Medals in Triathlon, setting Ironman age-group Kona course records, securing victory as the Ironman age-group Utah World Champion, clinching the Xterra World Championship titles, WTC Professional races, attaining the USATF 100 Mile championship, and even setting a world record for a 100-mile treadmill run.
