I just wondered if anybody had tried this supplement and did it help boost energy?

Got a mention recently. Do a search though if I remember rightly, the poster was a regular so you'll probably hear from him.

Enduro or Endura?

I use Endura. I usually ride in temperatures in the high 20's even early in the morning so sweating profusely is normal. I was after something to replace what was being lost and a personal trainer (I don't have one) mentioned Endura. I've since seen it on sale at the lbs so it must be okay.

Only problem is since I bought it, it's rained every day except one and the sun hasn't been visible since last Sunday last week so I haven't given it a good long term trial.

Maybe you people needing rain should buy some. It brought us rain if nothing else.

I have used Endura, but typically it's what ever is on special (currently Nutralife's 'Restore Energy'). I can't tell much difference between them - other than the taste. of course. :wink:

Dangerous perception if I may say!

I take the view that these $$$ salt replacing drinks are only of value on longer rides, at least one to two hours or more. Otherwise water and a nice feed at home later would replace all the salt you've lost. Further, your body's regulation system would do a good job of equilibrating your needs.

So I keep my container of Stamina for those longer distance Sun rides only.

I realised what I wrote after I posted it and thought that's not really a good reason but I couldn't have been bothered changing it. I'd already edited it once because I missed a word.

I also forgot to mention I only use it on the longer rides, up around 40kms and especially the 60km plus rides, not the regular 20km rides around town.

1) Don't eat bananas if you have kidney failure!

2) Per Tuco's URL. Alternatively, lick your Mg bike. :wink:

Not long got in and have to say the Enduro Booster stuff helps. I still get some cramping if I push it too far but the Doc said that would be the case, cos of the meds I have to take. Anyhow it's only my 3rd day and to build Rome will take a lot longer than by the Romans. I see some results allready but i guess with time not being on my side so to speak, I'm rather impatiant for better results. It would also help if it was flat around here.!

I agree, sogood.
On longer rides (usually only weekends) I take a bottle of water and a bottle of electrolyte / carbohydrate replacement drink and alternate between them - anything left has to be drunk as soon as I get home!
For club events, I usually take electrolyte / carbohydrate replacement drink in both bottles and a banana. I also have a protein-based meal replacement drink when I finish, to get my recovery nutrition started.
That said, if I had to get through the humidity that Tuco has to deal with, I would probably be using electrolyte replacement more often.

Right now my daily ride is around 3 hours, so I find the stuff helps. Tho to drink it at the rate they say would bankrupt me very quickly!
I have'nt even thought about heart rate etc, but I have low blood presure and I'm taking rat poison daily, amongst other things. I know this is my 3rd day out but I feel knackered, completely knackered. :(

Do you think you are pushing yourself too hard with 3 hr rides so early in your cycling career? If you feel knackered, think how your heart feels. For its benefit, you might be better off to ease into cycling at a more graduated rate. A jack hammer initial approach may also lead to early termination due to injuries.

+1 Be careful, those that do that sort of riding have built a base fitness previously

I had thought of that too. To be perfectly honest I don't know. Thing is I have several medical conditions, and several tablets I have to take so I am not sure how much that'll effect things. My general level of fitness is poor, mainly from too much time in Hospital last year( not my heart thankfully) so I tend to go at my own pace, which is usually slow, and I end up walking up the bigger hills. I was thinking maybe I should try road tyres too, for a while at least. I am pushing myself a bit, probably too much, but time is kinda important to me now, and tho I'm tired I don't think I've done too much. at least I'm sleeping a lot better too! :lol: I did think maybe I'dd look into getting an appointment with a Sports Medicine Specialist, hopefully who bulk bills, to maybe help steer me( pardon the pun) in the right direction. I kind of wish I was healthier like most of you seem to be, at least it'dd be easier.

My medical history does not make good reading, it's actually a bit scary, even to me. Is there a doctor in the house?

Given the general indication of your medical condition, there's even more reasons to be careful in your approach to exercise. You should aim long with gradual improvements rather than hitting for maximal exertion from the start. Even for pro athletes, the ideal training level isn't to push oneself to 101% all the time, but to primarily make use of smartly structured activities at lower levels of exertion.

I would suggest that you borrow a basic DIY fitness book from your local library and get an understanding of how best to structure a regime for your condition. If that's too difficult, than gym instructor/hospital physiotherapist may be good sources of information.

Just don't rush it, build up gradually is the key!

Officially astrophysics, though that's slightly misleading. Astronomical instrumentation is nearer the mark. Either way I'm not much use for advice on health issues, fitness training or bicycles :wink:

Healthy? Where?

Random thought : I've found that buying a heart rate monitor has been the best thing I've bought yet - I now ride by heart rate, not speed or time. I find myself in anaerobic far too often (must be all the extra weight I'm taking along for the ride).

The worst thing about my two HRMs is that the cheap one keeps telling me I'm DEAD :shock:

If you're mostly on road Pete, definitely go for slick tyres, you'll feel way better (or push yourself harder :? )
