Liquid Energy BCAA
The overview, «LIQUID ENERGY GELS in Comparison».
LIQUID ENERGY BCAA is a highly concentrated energy gel for fast and long-lasting energy supply from glucose, fructose and isomaltulose. The conveniently dosable tube contains furthermore the amino acids BCAA and taurine. The branched-chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine (BCAA) are burned as fuel by the muscles under stress. The supplemental BCAA spares the BCAA from the muscle's own structure under exertion and thus helps to optimize recovery time. Results from studies suggest that BCAA have an influence on the central fatigue system and may attenuate perceived exertion. Therefore, LIQUID ENERGY BCAA is particularly suitable for long-lasting endurance activities. Taurine, on the other hand, is an important antioxidant which helps protect tissue from oxidative damage.

Drinking after energy gels
Drinking after energy gels in training and competition
When using gels or solid foods, drink sufficient water, at least 200 ml per 20 to 30 g of carbohydrates, in order to prevent a reduction in blood plasma volume. (Evans et al., 2017: Optimizing the restoration and maintenance of fluid balance after exercise-induced dehydration. J Appl Physiol 122(4):945-951). Otherwise, rehydration is impaired, which can lead to gastrointestinal discomfort during exercise.

Interview David Hauss
Interview with trailrunner David Hauss
David, what are your next key races and how is preparation going so far?
I raced a lot in the last few weeks so far, some easy days are consumed and now I'm back on track! Big days of training right now then I will go in training camp in Alpe d’Huez for three weeks end of July to prepare the CCC, 101 km race around Mont Blanc in the UTMB event end of August. Then I'll looking forward to the Diagonal des Fous in Réunion Island two months later.
What are your key aspects when it comes to nutrition and trail running? What is your nutrition tip number one for trail runners?
On the ultra-trail rail races nutrition is all about! It makes the difference at the end for sure between winning or finishing – if you are still able. My key rule is getting carbs/sugar enough to push all the way so I need to set the clock on 30’/45' time, having my HIGH ENERGY BARS and LIQUID ENERGY GELS during my run. Let’s say my first advice is to be regular in terms of nutrition/ hydration whatever and whenever you are! Also have a «pleasure meal» somewhere in the race to break the routine.
What is the biggest nutrition mistake you ever did in a race?
I didn't really make a bike mistake in the race so far but during some warm races, I didn't drink enough at the beginning of the race thinking «all good» but I paid it cash later and it takes time to be able to push again.
What are your favourite SPONSER products?
My two favourite SPONSER product will be the Vanilla MULTI PROTEIN shake because it means that the job has be done properly and I need to well recover. The second will be the LIQUID ENERGY BCAA GEL, it saved me so many times during races from bad situations and pushes me faster to the finish line. But there are many products like ELECTROLYTES that I like too.22. 07. 2019
