Race Sustenance: GU Endurance Nutrition

Every athlete burns energy at a different rate. For those that shed “precious” calories faster than others during a race, it’s essential they ingest supplemental aides – during, before and after – to keep themselves performing optimally. Here’s a couple to consider from the GU factory.

In addition, it includes electrolytes to ensure proper hydration, an antioxidant blend to stave off muscle tissue damage, and an amino acid blend to delay muscle fatigue.
