You need to train regularly and maintain a suitable diet to prepare for a marathon.
A lot of energy is used during a marathon and up to 700 kcal/hour may be burned. This is why OVERSTIM.s, the creator of the Marathon Pack, has brought together its most effective products so that you can reach your objective.
If you take the OVERSTIM.s Marathon Pack it will prepare you on the days running up to the run, and help you to be at the top of your game during the marathon.
BEFORE THE MARATHON
Increase your energy reserves with antioxidant Malto. 3 days before the race, stock up on muscle glycogen, by drinking 150 g of Antioxidant Malto every day, diluted in 1.5l of water.
Make sure you're in the best possible form at the start of the race by taking an easy-to-digest energy breakfast, with Gatosport. Take 1/3 to 1/2 a Gatosport up to 1 hr 30 before the start.
Stabilise your glycaemia level while waiting for the start and prevent reactional hypoglycaemia caused by stress with the Warm-up drink.
DURING THE MARATHON
Each time you eat, take an OVERSTIM.s sports gel to give you regular energy and effectively support your muscle activity during the marathon.
OVERSTIM.s sports gels provide concentrated energy, vitamins and minerals (magnesium, calcium, sodium, …) all of which are required while doing a sporting activity, in a very small volume.
The liquid texture of the OVERSTIM.s sports gels makes them particularly pleasant to take during even intense activity, when it is sometimes difficult to consume food.
