SIS - Which Gel & when?

With multiple types of energy gels to choose from, we commonly get asked what type of energy gel you should use and when? So to help, we’ve put together an overview of the different types of energy gels available and when is best to use each during training or competition. SIS GO ISOTONIC ENERGY GEL Our GO Isotonic Energy Gel is simply 22g of carbohydrate from our selected source of maltodextrin. This creates an isotonic formula, which causes minimal stomach discomfort during exercise, but with…

SIS - Recovering like the Swans

Pre-Season Recovery The AFL pre-season is characterised by high volumes of speed, endurance & strength training. The players train for five straight days, followed by two recovery days. Each training session has a slightly different recovery protocol. High running days and “double session” days require a combination of protein and carbohydrates to both refuel the muscles and start the repair process; for this, SiS REGO Recovery is utilised. Protein is an essential nutrient for athletes…



SIS - AFL and energy

SIS - AFL and energy

AFL is a unique sport in that it employs multiple physiological components (i.e. strength, power, endurance) in relatively equal weighting. That said, the energy requirements of an AFL player widely vary due to factors such as: the position and size of the player, demands of the training session and match-day fuelling needs. AFL players have high to very high daily energy expenditure. These athletes require substantial volumes of fuel around training and matches, predominantly in the form of…



SIS - Fuelling for AFL

SIS - Fuelling for AFL

AFL football takes a lot out of the body, from the toll of physical contact to depleting energy stores. The physiological demand of AFL players is position specific, with midfield players covering 12-15km each match and defenders needing to be strong and powerful to match the opposition, requiring shorter bursts of sprinting and anaerobic activities. This makes nutrition an important factor to AFL performance, with a player relying on a variety of foods to maximize performance. Typically, an…



SIS - Hydrating in the Summer months

SIS - Hydrating in the Summer months

INCREASED ENVIRONMENTAL TEMPERATURE The increased summer temperatures make hydration strategies significantly more important. Higher environmental temperatures place greater stress on the body during exercise causing increased sweat rates. If higher sweat rates are combined with incorrect fuelling strategies then the risk of dehydration is dramatically increased. Although sweating is a great mechanism for cooling the body down, fluid loss equating to > 2 % body mass (1.4 kg in a 70 kg person)…



SIS - Fuelling for game day

SIS - Fuelling for game day

GAME DAY -1 The day prior to the game, the midfielders increase their carbohydrate intake to ‘carbohydrate loading’ levels. They achieve this by consuming 8-10g of carbohydrate for every kilogram of bodyweight over the course of the day. Ideally, they are consuming a meal or snack every two hours to meet these increased requirements. Up to twenty-four hours pre-game, the carbohydrates consumed are of low to moderate glycaemic index. After this they switch almost exclusively to high glycaemic…



SIS - The importance of hydration

SIS - The importance of hydration

During moderate to intense exercise, we can produce up to 2 litres of sweat per hour depending on individual sweat rates and the environmental conditions that surround us. Sweat contains vital electrolytes which are essential for numerous bodily functions such as hydration and the regulation or nerve and muscle function. SiS Hydro Tablets contain essential electrolytes such as sodium, calcium and magnesium to help keep us hydrated during exercise. If fluid and electrolyte losses are not…

The Best Cycling Nutrition During Riding: What to consume and when

The Best Cycling Nutrition During Riding: What to consume and when

We hear from former Tour Down Under winner, Pat Jonker on how he fuels his body with nutrition for general every day, mega and multi day tour rides. Nutrition advice has come a long way over the course of my cycling career. When I first began racing back in the early 80's the world of nutrition was a different place. I thought I had the very best guidance with my dad and both uncles being elite cyclists. But when compared to what we know now, I’d suggest maybe not… You see, back in the day a…
