Endurance Athletes Improve Performance Through Fueling with Ryan McMullen


Having worked with thousands of runners, cyclists, swimmers, and other endurance athletes, MetPro coaches deeply understand the importance of proper fueling. In this episode we discuss how to adjust the type and timing of meals and other fuel for endurance sports. We are joined by MetPro founder, Angelo Poli and coach Ryan McMullen. Both have years of experience training athletes for major events like the IRONMAN, Boston Marathon, Tough Mudder, and others. Ryan and Angelo have also worked with those just getting started in running their first 5K. Regardless of experience, learn why proper fuel is critical.

We discuss:
- The importance of fuel for endurance athletes
- Assessing your specific fuel needs
- Narrowing your goals to be specific on fuel needs
- Meal consistency, and why it is critical for beginners
- Timing your fuel based on the length of a workout or competition
- Acclimating ahead of event day
- Fueling on non-training days
- Finding success through understanding your individuality
