20-60 minutes pre-training or event, drink Vitargo. Use the Carb Calculator to determine your personalized dose. Do a couple of practice rides or runs to determine your timing. Vitargo begins to empty from the stomach within 10 minutes, but some people need more than 20 minutes pre-exercise to feel comfortable as well as energized. Many find the “sweet spot” to be 30-45 minutes pre-exercise.
Workouts, training sessions, and competitive events that last longer than 90 minutes will usually benefit from re-fueling approximately every 45-60 minutes. Your hourly carbohydrate gram need is personalized for you in the carb calculator. You want to be ahead of your energy burn rate, meaning that you want to have taken your Vitargo before your tank runs low, to give time for intra-exercise stomach emptying and flow into your bloodstream to begin: about 20 minutes.
Post-training or post-event, as soon as possible use Vitargo plus protein to begin the processes to refuel, recover, repair and grow. Then go eat a great meal.
