Why reducing body fat can improve your performance.
Fat burning is often overlooked by endurance athletes and cyclists, but in fact, in the words of James Cracknell "reducing the timber" is one of the critical ingredients in improving performance and getting across the finish line, the reason being that if you are able to reduce the amount of weight that you are carrying, whilst maintaining lean muscle and power output the faster you can go, and if you already have the best bike and lightest kit it is the only variable that you can affect.
Chop the wood with Thermogen
Whether you cycle to get keep fit, race or for the comradery reducing body fat can be beneficial.
There is no doubt that reducing body fat can have significant health benefits and cycling along with Thermogen can achieve this.
If however you want to win races, then it is all about reducing weight and maintaining power output, so a reduction in body fat and the associated weight can help you power up even the steepest inclines.
The key ingredient in Thermogen is Yerba mate which is a herb traditionally consumed in South America, where it’s known for its energy-boosting properties and antioxidant properties.This was found in a recent Nutrition and Metabolism study investigating yerba mate's fat-burning properties during exercise.
In a study, a group of fourteen men and women were recruited to partake in two sessions on an exercise bike. Each time their test on the bike was the same and each time they received a pill one hour before cycling.
The participants rode on the bike at increasing intensities every three minutes until they reached the limits of their ability to intake oxygen. The researchers measured performance, to determine how much energy was consumed.
Results - both fat burning and the percentage of total energy expenditure that came from fat instead of carbs or protein both increased by 24%, as long as the intensity levels were submaximal, or below seventy percent of VO2 peak. For most people, this intensity would be equivalent to a heart rate of between 150 and 160 beats per minute.
