Train right, eat better: recovery and training adaptations

Train right, eat better, cyclist diet

There are numerous ways in which we can enhance performance in cycling. Although training is by far the most effective way of enhancing performance, other aspects such as cycling equipment, clothing, altitude/hypoxic tents, breathing devices, and nutrition can all add further benefit.

Performance nutrition is an interesting area of research as the fuels you put in your body can have a huge effect on how you feel and how your body performs. It would be a shame to spend a considerable amount of time training hard only to take the edge of its impact on your performance by simply eating the wrong foods at the wrong times.
