    Default More on Carbs


    For non-keto-adapted athletes, intra-workout carbohydrate consumption can boost performance, but thereís a few caveats. First, strength athletes are likely going to get much less benefit than endurance athletes; most bodybuilding-style workouts simply arenít limited by carb availability. However, if you plan on doing some high volume training for more than 60-75 mins, consuming some carbs might help. This can be in the form of Gatorade, a banana, or something similar thatís easy on the GI. Endurance athletes performing longer workouts will probably benefit from 60 grams per hour during intense training. Once youíre at this level of intake, make sure your carbs are coming from multiple sources in order to maximize absorption.
