Water is an essential constituent of the human body as it makes up approximately 60% of its whole composition. All cells, organs and tissues are primarily comprised of water making it vital for correct function of all physiological processes in the body. Water transports nutrients and oxygen into cells, regulates body temperature (thermoregulation), acts as a lubricant and shock absorber to protect joints, the brain and foetus during pregnancy, supports digestion & removal of waste products, and is also required to breakdown food so we can use it as energy.

It was in the 1960’s when dietary carbohydrates were discovered as the major energy source to fuel exercise by being stored in the muscles as glycogen. Muscle glycogen content is linked to endurance performance and starting with lower concentrations results in premature fatigue, therefore nutritional strategies to increase muscle and liver glycogen before competition are common to maximise performance. Here we look at effective carbohydrate loading strategies to get the most from your diet and fuel your next event.
