Was wondering about section on nutrition.
'Sports drinks don't Help, half banana and water just as good????'
Most literature would argue that isotonic drinks make big difference, and from personal experience have improved my performance greatly.
Furthermore I would be surprised if anyone could name an international endurance athlete in ANY sport who does not use a sports drink for training and competition. I think anyone will find if they trial a drink( I suggest high 5) for a couple of weeks not only will their erg time improve but they will be able to increase frequency, duration and intensity of exercise.
