Natural Oat Bar
A great source of fuel for prolonged endurance exercise.
- Contains carbohydrates for prolonged energy supply during exertion
- Can be used as a carbohydrate-rich snack
- With 10% more fat than the Etixx Energy Sport Bar, making it perfect for the first part of prolonged low intensity exertion
Performance in prolonged exercise or high intensity intermittent exercise is reliant on the availability of muscle glycogen. Therefore it is important to maximise carbohydrate stores before an event whilst also ensuring that you consume carbohydrate during prolonged events to replenish fuel stores.
The Etixx Natural Oat Sport Bar is suitable for both before and during exercise. Before exercise, it can be used to top up and maximise carbohydrate stores. This should be combined with a diet rich in carbohydrates in the build up to a competition or heavy training block to ensure you are properly fuelled.
During prolonged endurance or high intensity exercise it is also important to take on carbohydrates to replenish fuel stores. If no carbohydrates are consumed during prolonged or intense efforts, muscle glycogen stores would be depleted after approx. 90 min. The amount of carbohydrate you should take during exercise depends on the length of the session or event.
- Exercises < 1h(15):not necessary to consume carbohydrates during exercise .
- Exercises 1-2h: 30 g carbohydrates per hour exercise.(~1 bar)
- Exercises 2-3h: 60 g carbohydrates per hour exercise.(~2 bars)
- Exercises >2.5-3h: up to 90 g carbohydrates per hour exercise. (~3 bars)
The Etixx Natural Oat Sport Bars not only contain 30 g of carbohydrate, but they also contain 10% more fat than the Etixx Energy Sport Bars. Therefore they are ideal for consuming during the first part of long-term efforts of a lower intensity. This is because the energy from fat will be released slower and over a prolonged period of time. The added fat also helps to improve satiety, meaning it will help to keep you feeling full.
Who can benefit from the Etixx Natural Oat Sport Bar?
The Etixx Natural Oat Sport Bar provides a long lasting supply of fuel and therefore can be good for consumption during endurance events or during team and racket sports. It may also be of benefit to athletes who have intense training sessions over several hours.
