Triathlon Nutrition Foundations: A System to Nail your Triathlon Race Nutrition and Make It a Weapon on Race Day (Paperback)
Most triathletes are well aware of the three main disciplines in triathlon, but there's a fourth, critical discipline that's frequently overlooked and causes athletes to underperform, if it's not properly addressed: NUTRITION. Imagine getting through your race feeling strong throughout the entire day, free of cramps, passing dozens or even hundreds of athletes who are fading because they aren't fuelled correctly. This is what a well-executed strategy for race nutrition will allow you to do. Proper triathlon nutrition can be the difference between a PERSONAL BEST and a DID NOT FINISH. Triathlon Nutrition Foundations teaches you an easy-to-execute system to figure out your exact caloric needs for any race, giving you the best shot at a finish you never imagined was possible. This book provides detailed instructions for how to choose your fuel sources, when to take them, and precisely how much is needed. You'll have a leg up on your competitors and never again have to worry about a badly-timed bonk during an important race Taren Gesell is a successful age-group endurance athlete who originally became known for his wildly popular YouTube channel, Instagram account and podcast, where he shares tips, tricks, hacks, scientifically backed research, and time-tested knowledge to help new and developing endurance athletes get to their start lines confident and their finish lines strong.
