Who here takes any supplements to help them gain strength and endurance?
Currently i take Omega 3 fatty acids, Flax oil, and Udo’s oil stuff everyday…it has greatly improved my leg strength and endurace for those long uphill stretches.
Does anyone else follow a diet to stay in good riding shape?
Not a supplement, just a good diet. I try to eat lots of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
When I was road biking more, like every other day for a couple of hours I used Endurox R4 recovery drink, it helps alot as far as having the right stuff to heal your legs faster and make you feel better the next day. I always felt great the next day, it also helps to replenish your glycogen stores since they absorb at like 400% immediatly after 1-2hours of exercise and you need the right balance, like a 4:1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein or something like that. The only thing is it’s not cheap, it’s like $50-60 for a 28 serving jug. Otherwise just make sure you eat enough too, you want to eat lots so your body has enough to repair the damage your muscles take.

I realize they’re not all supplements per se, but they get the job done.
