Fuel Archives - Sport Nutrition For Endurance Athletes


Avoid “hitting the wall.”
Refuel your body while you race with Eload Energy Gel.

The most common worry we hear from endurance athletes is “hitting the wall” or “bonking” — the sudden feeling of fatigue and loss of energy in the middle of an endurance sport.

Eload Energy Gel provides endurance athletes with a concentrated source of energy that can be consumed during the race, so you can make it all the way to the finish line.

Carbohydrates are the primary fuel source for your muscles during endurance sports, and the faster and longer you race, the more carbohydrates your body will burn as energy. Glycogen is a complex carbohydrate that is used to store energy in your muscles and during endurance exercise the glycogen is broken down and used as fuel.

Your body can only store a limited amount of glycogen in the muscles, even with effective carb-loading. Once the body uses the available glycogen stores, it transitions to using fats for energy, which is inefficient.

Eload Energy Gel will refuel your body by replacing the glycogen your muscles used during your endurance sport and will help prevent you from “hitting the wall” or “bonking.”

Eload Energy Gel Will Give You A Quick Boost Of Energy.
The main ingredient in Eload Energy Gel is dextrose and maltodextrin, two carbohydrates designed to replace muscle glycogen as you lose it, provide an energy boost, and keep your muscles working at optimal capacity during your endurance sport. Our formula is easy to digest and absorb and doesn’t require any processing by the liver, so it is almost immediately available for use as energy.

Eload Energy Gel has helped endurance athletes race longer and reach the finish line faster. Our easy 3 step program will make your endurance sport easier on your body and help you reach your peak potential.

Eload Energy Gel maintains the glycogen stored in your muscles and gives you the energy you need to reach the finish line. The gel is specially formulated to be used before, during, and after a race or endurance training session.

You can start taking Eload Energy Gel before your endurance race begins to help provide an early source of energy and help your stomach process the sugars faster.

Start taking Eload Energy Gel early in the race and aim to consume one package every 30-60 minutes while training or competing. Your body relies on carbohydrates as its primary fuel source during an endurance sport, and since only a limited amount can be stored in the muscles, it’s important to replenish carbohydrates early and often during your endurance exercise.

For assistance with replenishing muscle glycogen and rehydrating after an endurance workout, consume Eload Energy Gel up to 30-60 minutes after exercise to replace lost nutrients.

Be sure to consider your individual digestive process when deciding how often to take Eload Energy Gel. Keep in mind the speed at which your body can digest and process energy, as well as changes that occur in your digestive tract during a race. The process of digestion slows down the further you get into a race, so it’s important to avoid overloading your stomach.

Our carbohydrate calculator can help determine how often you should consume Eload Energy Gel during a race.
