Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates are essential to helping athletes reach peak performance during strenuous activity. As exercise intensifies, muscle glycogen (where carbohydrates are stored) becomes depleted, which causes an increased need for carbohydrates. Eating the right amount of carbohydrates before, during, and after an event is critical!

Common sources include meats, fish, grains and vegetables.
