TORQ Fueling System, odnosno sustav za opskrbu gorivom (ugljikohidratima) prilagođen je svim sportašima, bilo da se bave biciklizmom, triatlonom ili trčanjem. Kada trčite, samo ste malo ograničeniji u izboru proizvoda zbog praktičnosti. Ali možete naučiti kako pravilno upravljati unosom ugljikohidrata s TORQ proizvodima.

Naše su smjernice vrlo jednostavne. Unesite 2-3 TORQ jedinice po satu za održavanje optimalne izdržljivosti. 1 jedinica TORQ-a odgovara 30 g ugljikohidrata. Proizvodi sadrže 30g ugljikohidrata po gelu, pločici ili porciji za brži i lakši izračun unosa.

Tijekom ljeta ćemo tijekom aktivnosti konzumirati više izotoničnih napitaka jer se zbog vrućina i visokih temperatura brže znojimo. Kada se znojimo, gubimo tekućinu i elektrolite koje je potrebno nadoknaditi. Inače će doći do preranog umora mišića, dehidracije i posljedičnog pada performansi i izdržljivosti.


Tijekom hladnijeg vremena znojenja je manje i tada konzumiramo više energetskih pločica i gelova. Bez obzira na to koliko se znojimo, naša potreba za ugljikohidratima ostaje ista. TORQ-ov sustav napajanja prilagođava se vašim potrebama za hidratacijom i energijom.

Zaključak

Preporučamo da počnete s unosom ugljikohidrata postupno kako biste testirali kako ćete reagirati na količinu ugljikohidrata koju pojedete. Unos ugljikohidrata treba prilagoditi individualnim potrebama, odnosno razini treniranosti, trajanju aktivnosti, intenzitetu aktivnosti i cilju. Općenito, preporuča se unos 60-90 g ugljikohidrata po satu za dugotrajne aktivnosti, ovisno o intenzitetu vježbanja. Vrlo iskusni sportaši i natjecatelji unose i više od 100 g ugljikohidrata.
