    Episode 24 - Sports Nutrition 101 PLUS Q&A from CB Trail Sisters

    What is sports nutrition? Do you need it? Will it help you? Isn't it just a bunch of extra calories and sugar? If you're new to sports nutrition, or performance nutrition, and don't know where to start...this is it! Or, if you've been using sports nutrition for years, but think you may not be doing it as well as you could, or have been misguided somewhere along the way, this is it.
    Today, Kelli breaks it down and give you what every athlete needs, the foundation of sports nutrition.
    PLUS, Q&A from the Crested Butte Trail Sisters!

    Episode 23 - Caffeine & Athletic Performance (THROWBACK EPISODE)

    Episode 23 - Caffeine & Athletic Performance (THROWBACK EPISODE)

    Yes, I've experimented with caffeine AND endurance. Caffeine from coffee, from Yerba Mate, from espresso beans, from pills. From red bull (it's the caffeine that actually gives you wings), from 5 hour energy, from caffeinated sports drinks, and from gels. 
    You could say I've had a lot of time on my hands to do so, because I've done a fair amount of endurance adventures and some races. And sometimes, they start in the wee hours of the morning, at midnight (thankful for caffeine on the skimo GT), and go long. Long enough to make me question my life's choices, my running shoes, my ski boots, and my sanity.
    This episode was recorded by Ben Welnak and I (www.mountainbikeradio) back in 2015. It's all still true. 
    You can find my old post about it, with links to the research, here: https://www.apexnutritionllc.com/blogs/fuel-right-blog/caffeine-pills-and-performance-my-personal-experiment
    And, of course, I'd love to hear about your own experiments in caffeine & endurance! podcast@apexnutritionllc.com

FlgVernieD ,

I am learning from these podcasts!

I stumbled upon the Apex Nutrition podcast when starting a new training push for a MTB event that I hope to participate in this Spring. I am loving Kelli’s simple, cost-effective recipes. And the information she gives about why foods are good for everyday nutrition and/or training fuel is so interesting and helpful. As a working mom trying to fit healthy eating and athletic training into my schedule, I feel she gets it! Thank you!

Great Podcast. Great Info.

I’ve been listening to Kelli’s podcast since the days of MTB Radio. Always appreciate the information she gives. It’s always clear and easy to apply information… great for serious athletes or just for healthy habits in general. Years ago I also purchased one of her nutrition ebooks and it was super helpful!! Thanks Kelli!

Pod casts are great. Hard to find anything else

Love your podcasts but can’t find your website. Also there seems to be another Apex nutrition LLC.

Also love your recipes. What is an easy way to find them? Are they listed anywhere?
