High compatibility for top performances

During triathlons, it is necessary to observe, in addition to a sufficient intake of fluids, carbohydrates and salts, the best possible compatibility of the sports nutrition. Stay on the safe side with the Aktiv³ range and the tried and tested supply recommendations. Fill your nutrient reservoir up prior to the start to make yourself independent from the refreshment stations.

These nutrients are decisive for your success:

nutrients for success

An isotonic beverage supplies you with:

Fluid - to protect against performance slumps

Fluid - to protect against performance slumps

Even a fluid loss of 1-2 litres causes a drop in performance of up to 20%.

Carbohydrates – fuel for the muscles

Carbohydrates – fuel for the muscles

Carbohydrates are fast energy suppliers for the musculature and of essential importance for concentration capacities.

Sodium – decisive in case of cramps

Sodium – decisive in case of cramps

As you sweat, you lose mineral substances, mainly sodium. A severe sodium deficit may lead to cramps.

 

Why is self-sufficiency required in competitions?

In this way, you make yourself independent of the refreshment stations. Don't take risks – with your tried and tested and compatible Aktiv³ self-sufficient supply, you stay on the safe side! You can find out how to use our products correctly whilst running in the section "Competition".

PREPARATION

The supply of carbohydrates must be finely tuned prior to the competition.

For this reason, drink 500ml Isotonic Energy Drink the evening before the day of the competition. Overnight, you lose a high quantity of liquid and therefore also sodium through breathing, sweating and, after getting up, through morning urination. In addition, carbohydrate levels are at a minimum in the morning. Consume 500ml Isotonic Energy Drink 1 hour prior to the start.

Tip in case of extreme challenges: Drink 1 tube of Liquid Energy Pure 15 minutes prior to the start .

DURING THE COMPETITION
From the start, ensure a constant supply of nutrients.

  • Directly after swimming:
    1 tube Liquid Energy Pure + water

REGENERATION
Of essential importance for fast regeneration is the compensation of lost nutrients and mineral substances.

Within the first half hour after activity, the metabolism is still stimulated. Therefore the body is able to absorb and process the supplied nutrients to an increased degree.
The composition of the Protein Regeneration Turbo has been designed for application after high levels of sporting exertion. Within the first half hour after completing the competition, drink 500ml of this product. Water is available at all times at the competition location, which is why the drink can also be prepared using water (instead of milk) as required.

Tip for fast and convenient initial supply: as soon as you reach the finishing line, drink 1 tube of  Regeneration Turbo +BCAA, through which you can directly supply your body with the decisive nutrients.

Stress and the hectic pace of everyday life place great demands on the body. Frequently, training is incorporated into an already-stressful schedule.

PREPARATION

In this case, and in case of intensive training, consume 500 ml Isotonic Energy Drink 1 hour prior to starting training to provide the basis for efficient performance.

DURING TRAINING

In case of high levels of exertion, you can also fall back on the Isotonic Energy Drink during training.

REGENERATION

After a hard training session, immediately drink 500ml Protein Regeneration-Turbo.

Or, after a moderate training session, drink 500ml Regeneration Mineral Drink Premium.
