I am sharing these great training tips from PowerBar Team Elite athlete and American long distance Josh Cox. Josh Cox is a 4-time Olympic Trials Qualifier, 3-time National Team Member and the American Record Holder in the 50k. In 2009 and 2011 his 50k were the fastest in the world.
Additionally, I have a complementary video and some brief tips about nutrition after your workout. Remember these four things when deciding what to eat:
- Your goals and the type of workout you do matters. If you want to lose weight vs gaining muscle vs maintaining. Strength vs endurance vs volume training vs cardio.
- The building blocks of muscles are protein.
- Carbs are the main source of fuel/energy.
- Check the nutritional content, beware of high sugar!
