Nutrition Webinars: January 16, 2020 from 7:00 to 8:00 PM EST

As cyclists, there are some elements of the sport, beyond riding itself, that should interest if not fascinate you. We speak here of how our capacity for longer, more difficult rides is improved through training, rest and nutrition. André Wolff began educating himself about these topics, found them an exciting journey and thought to share his interests with other CRW members. He is organizing a series of educational webinars, and starting with a discussion of nutrition. These sessions will interest those wanting to improve their performance, but all can benefit from greater awareness of the science behind our body's workings, especially the physiological adaptations that occur in the body through exercise.

 

 

 

The first webinar will cover endurance sports nutrition, including:

  • Introduction to sports physiology—what happens at cell, tissue and system levels.
  • Where nutrition comes to play? A view into macronutrients and their role in sports nutrition.
  • Pre/during/post-ride nutrition. What do you need to perform well and recover even better (on racing, training, and riding)?

First a word about a webinar. It is a live, virtual event that is executed online. It is an educational or instructive session that includes audio and visual communication between a speaker and attendees.  The software enables the sharing of slides and interactive participation through chat boxes and Q&A features. You attend the event from home and logon to a website with a CRW-supplied meeting code. We will be using the Zoom Platform. If you are interested in having a first contact with it, and checkimg how it works on your computer or mobile device, please use this link for a meeting test: https://zoom.us/test

For this first nutrition webinar, André has recruited Jacob Geisler, USAT Level I coach and Tech Rep, Sports Nutrition at GU Energy Labs.

This first webinar will be held on January 16, 2020 from 7:00 to 8:00 PM EST. We ask you to pre-register here, and will send you logon information closer to the event’s date. This is an exciting new venture for the club and we hope you join us.

Looking forward to it.

Hi Sheila, great! It will be great to "see" you there. Thing is: We all need some encouragement to get back to good nutrition habits after the holidays. I hope the webinar will give some encouragement ;-)
