COVID-19 UPDATE- We’re Business As Usual whilst following the government guidelines
We have designed our product range to support all aspects of training. Whether it is before, during, after or healthy snacking around your training session, find out what products we have for you.
It is when you are busy and constantly on the go that often unhealthy decisions are made when it comes to snacking. Our Anytime Bars give you a great tasting, 100% natural energy boost when you need it the most.
Did you know that consuming high protein snacks can help keep you feeling fuller for longer. This helps to keep your snacking in control and stop you constantly heading back to the cupboard. Our Protein Bars supply you with 22g of protein and less that 1g of sugar- the perfect snack for helping improve your protein intake.
To get the most out of your exercise it is important to give yourself the necessary means to do so. Our body has energy stores that need to be topped up before we can take on exercise of moderate to high intensity. With empty stores, your body will struggle to keep up with your workouts intensity
Did you know as little as 2% loss of your body weight through dehydration can negatively affect your sporting performance. Don’t start your exercise or event already on the back foot and make sure you start fully hydrated.
Foods that are high in carbohydrate are a great way to top up the energy stores before you begin exercising. A meal containing pasta or rice can be great 2-3 hours before. But as you get closer to the start of your exercise a smaller high carbohydrate snack is a better option.
Sometimes for those really short and intense training sessions you need an added boost. A combination of caffeine, beta- alanine and protein can help delay fatigue and protect against muscle breakdown. Perfect for before strength training sessions in the gym or intense interval session.
During exercise your body draws upon some of the many stores in our body. But for you to stay on top of the intensity or last the duration of your exercise, you need to help your body replenish these stores. There is no right or wrong way to fuel, it is very much down to personal preference. So whether it is our natural Anytime Bars or quick to consume energy gels; just make sure you are putting the energy in.
Whether it is before that last big climb of a sportive or the closing stages of a 10km run; sometimes you need energy and you need it fast. OTE Energy Gels contain multiple carbohydrate sources for a quicker release of energy into the body.
During exercise fluid is lost through sweating. It is important to keep on top of hydration during exercise therefore sipping fluid little and often should be part of every training session. Dehydration can negatively affect sporting performance and concentration.
Textbook would say that during endurance exercise you should aim to consume 60g of carbohydrates per hour to maintain moderate to hard intensity exercise. We at OTE have designed an energy system to help you work out your fuelling requirements. Having a supply of functional yet great tasting food with you for consumption during training is important to get the most out of the session or event.
Recovery is one of the most important parts of sports nutrition if you want to improve your sporting performance. Giving your body the correct nutrition to help it repair and adapt after training is really important; especially if you are wanting carry out back to back training days. Remember, just like training, quality is often better than quantity when it comes to recovery nutrition.
Within 30 minutes of finishing a training session the best way to kick start the recovery process is by having something that ticks off the 3 R’s:
An OTE recovery drink can easily tick all these boxes whilst tasting great.
The recovery process doesn’t just end straight after a training session. Being able to supply your body with a supply of protein little and often throughout the day gives your body the building blocks it needs to help aid recovery. Ideally aim for a 20-25g portion every 3-4 hours; you can use our protein system to help.
