SoLo For Athletes

Fueling For Sport with SoLo Bar

Many top athletes, including Sochi Silver Medalist Kelsey Serwa, the Toronto Blue Jays, the Toronto Raptors and professional right winger Chuck Kobasew, use SoLo Bar for its sustained energy benefits in order to perform at their best.  SoLo Bar can be used before, during or after physical activity to lay down and maintain a steady stream of slow release carbohydrate energy. Below are recommendations of how to add SoLo Bar to your training and sport nutrition regime. 

BEFORE:

Eat one to two low glycemic certified SoLo Energy Bars in the 1-2 hours prior to exercise to provide a great source of low glycemic nutrition for sustained energy. 

DURING:

If your endurance activity lasts over 90 minutes, consume cut up pieces of SoLo Bars during your activity. This will spare glycogen stores and prevent blood sugar levels from dropping.   Shoot for 30 – 75 g of carbohydrates per hour of activity or up to 90 g per hour if exercising for longer than 2.5 hours. The precise amount will depend on many factors including individual tolerance, intensity and duration of exercise, hydration status, and environmental conditions.  And most importantly - don’t forget to stay hydrated!

AFTER:

Eat a SoLo Bar after physical activity to help replenish those glycogen stores and get your blood sugar levels back in the happy zone!

Finally, use your training time to experiment so you can find what works best for your body. And when you find the perfect SoLo Bar balance to keep your blood sugar and energy levels steady, stick with it to ensure you have the energy you need to finish strong on the big day.
