Dr. James Morton the Head of Nutrition at Team Sky talks to Matt about how to maximise the response of muscles in training.
There are various different methods that are discussed including "fasted" training, restricting carbohydrates after training or maybe no sports drinks when out training.
Also there's split sessions with no carbohydrate replacement before commencing another session with low muscle glycogen. Sometimes, top athletes will mix all three.
Protein is a real key ingredient to making sure that muscles repair and rebuild after and even during training sessions.

A fixed-gear bicycle is the standard design for track bikes, so Manon is pretty well-practised at riding fixies! Manon gives you her top tips, so you can ride a fixie like a pro.
The first Tour de France winner set a 25.7 km/h average speed, but last year the pro peloton hit 41km/h. How are pro cyclists generating more power than ever before? Si is joined by a special guest to discuss the increasing power outputs recorded in elite cycling. In cycling shorts, we announce our new wheel partner and Campagnolo has a new gravel groupset!
