Hypoglycemia

Training on Empty

Low blood sugar is never fun. Not only will it cause you to hit a wall during exercise, but it can also make you feel like you literally hit a wall - blurred vision, lightheadedness, nausea, the general feeling that you might suddenly pass out are just some of the symptoms of low blood sugar, also known as “hypoglycemia.“

There are a number of factors why hypoglycemia kicks in during exercise, and while research still does not definitively know why it affects some athletes more than others, many of these causes can be prevented and remedied by using a carbohydrate rich sports fuel like INFINIT.

Just as we believe no two athletes are the same, there is no universal method to avert or combat low blood sugar, but here are a few tips worth sharing from our partners at U.S. Masters Swimming.

Nutrition Library: Carb News You Can Use

Monday, July 13, 2015 4:50:20 PM America/New_York

Most endurance athletes practice some form of carbo-loading on a daily basis as means to prevent glycogen depletion, aka “the wall” or “bonking”, during longer training bouts. Perhaps it is that pasta dinner the night prior to a big workout or a pancake breakfast after a long training run. However, a more regimented form of carbohydrate loading will help “supersaturate” our muscle cells with glycogen to levels 50-100% greater than baseline, thereby delaying or even eliminating that performance-declining “wall” during events that entail a moderate-to-high intensity for longer than 90 minutes.Read More
