The CoreSports Plan has s a higher percentage of carbohydrates (50%) to help endurance athletes perform better and recover faster. Endurance training is the ability to work your body repeatedly without becoming exhausted. Endurance activities are performed at a rapid, non-stop pace for more than 1 hour at a time. Examples include long distance running, hockey, soccer, skiing, swimming, and biking. Carbohydrate availability is vital for maximal sports performance because endurance training places large demands on glycogen stores in the body.
Glycogen is the storage form of carbohydrate located in muscle and the liver. Depletion of glycogen is the single most contributing factor to fatigue and physical taxation. To postpone exhaustion, endurance athletes must try to maintain glycogen stores and blood sugar levels as long as they can.
