Tips to boost your energy during long workouts
Use gels full of amino acids
If you use gels during your workouts, ensure that your gel contains a sufficient amount of amino acids. Amino acid provides energy to your muscles and stops them from getting tired. You can also use a sports drink with amino acids instead of a gel, but amino acid is necessary, especially during long workouts where energy levels are extremely low, and you need a source of energy. In such situation, amino acids help you to push through the workout without getting extremely tired and fatigued.
You should have only a few days in a week when you will have long workout sessions, and on these days you can have a high-carb diet to fuel your body for the workout. Usually having a diet full of carbs will make you gain weight as carbs will turn into fats and get accumulated on your body, but on the days of long workouts you can have high carb as all of them will get consumed during workout because body will take energy from the carbs stored and you will be able to have an effective long workout easily.
