So I'm going on a hike b/c some of my buddies talked me into it. It is a 17 mile round trip hike that starts at 4000 feet and goes to 8400 feet. I'm not in great cardio shape even though I'm leaner than a lot of them. Anyway, what should I take supplement-wise? Luckily NP hooked me up with Poseidon and Swell samples so that's going in for sure. Anyone else have a lot of experience with long distance and all day events? I have available:
I'm thinking of getting some gatorades and some water and filling the water with maltodextrin. Should I be taking protein on the hike itself or worry more about carbs and BCAA and eat protein when I get back?
I'm just hoping I don't die
