Never surrender with Science In Sport

The never surrender mindset is only possible when you are fuelled by science.

Whether racing for a road sign or exploring the great outdoors, giving up is not an option.


Energy

Carbohydrate is the main fuel source for high-intensity exercise and is stored in the muscles and liver as glycogen.

When you exercise, this carbohydrate is broken down into glucose and transported to the muscles to be used as energy. You will not be able to perform at your best without sufficient carbohydrate stores and you could ‘hit the wall’.

Key products in this category include the world’s first Isotonic gel and brand new GO Energy Bakes.


Recovery

The aim of recovery is to make the most out of your training, increase adaptations and be ready to train again with minimal fatigue. During high-intensity exercise, your body will use up its carbohydrate stores.

You must replace this, along with essential electrolytes that are lost through sweat to prepare your body to go again.

Hydration

As little as a 2% reduction in body weight due to sweat loss can cause dehydration, which is associated with an increase in heart rate and body temperature.

This can decrease mental stimulation, concentration and overall performance. Appropriate sodium intake along with fluid can optimise hydration, which is especially important when sweat rates are high.
