Short duration exercise
(up to approx. 75 mins.)
Carb-rinsing will give you a physical boost and can be relied on as your source of fuel for exercise.
(greater than 75 mins.)
For exercise over ~ 75 mins, carb-rinsing should be used in combination with a traditional fueling strategy.
At this stage, your body has begun to deplete its glycogen reserves and the recommendations of the American College of Sports are to replenish with 30-90g of carbs per hour. Here are the benefits to carb-rinsing during endurance exercise:
a- Tactical power boost
Unlike traditional CHO or caffeine intake, carb rinsing has an instantaneous effect. Particularly useful as a power boost on a steep climb, break-away or push to the finish line.
b - Combating gastrointestinal (GI) distress
High CHO consumption during exercise is often the cause of GI distress, as blood flow is diverted away from the gut to the working muscle and digestion is compromised. Rinsing and discharging UNIT RINSE during periods of stomach upset allows athletes to continue without swallowing or digesting anything. This buys more time for gastric-emptying.
c - Combating taste fatigue
The light flavor may help combat taste fatigue experienced after consuming large amounts of sweet sports nutrition products during endurance events.
Train low periodized
A train low strategy is a protocol where an athlete completes specific training sessions without consuming any carbohydrates, in an effort to enhance mitochondrial adaptations of skeletal muscle.
By carb-rinsing during these sessions, the athlete may be able to achieve higher levels of intensity and/or reduce perception of fatigue without compromising metabolic adaptations.
