Guidelines for Using Energy
Taste : If you plan to eat the energy
bar during or shortly before bodybuilding, choose one that tastes good and
is easily digestible. Most of the energy bars taste reasonably good. While none
tasted as good to us as a bar of Swiss chocolate, some were very tasty,
while others left us with an unpleasant vitamin taste that lingered. Of
course, flavor is in the taste buds of the taster, so the individual is
the final judge. Energy intake is a problem for many serious
bodybuilder, so it's important that you choose an energy bar that you'll eat.
Timing for endurance bodybuilder : Eat
energy bars several hours before exercise, shortly before exercise (10
minutes or less), during exercise or during recovery. Eating an energy bar 30-45
minutes before exercise will cause high blood insulin levels at the
beginning of exercise, which may decrease blood sugar and impair
Timing for strength bodybuilder : Timing
is not as critical for these bodybuilders. However, eating the energy bars
during or after bodybuilding workouts may speed muscle growth. Studies
have shown that these athletes often don't take in enough energy in
their diets. Energy bars could be a convenient way to get the extra
calories you may need.
Drink water with energy bars : Energy
bars are highly concentrated. Water helps speed their digestion and
absorption into your bloodstream.
