FTP #7: Gabriel Baltazar Martins, MSc. – Carbohydrate Mouth Rinse: Fit for racing? (Solo episode)
Carbohydrate mouth rinsing can be defined as flushing a carbohydrate-based drink around the oral cavity for certain time, followed by the subsequent expulsion of fluid.
Plenty of research associates carbohydrate mouth rinse to positive effects in athletic performance, not only in endurance activities but also with a growing interest in high intensity sprint-based activities.
On this episode we discuss the results found by a recent publication from our research group, and other research performed so far to discuss whether Carbohydrate mouth rinse can actually be applied during cycling race events.
This is a solo episode from the host of Fuel the Pedal Podcast, Gabriel Martins.
On this episode: 1. How carbohydrate mouth rinse studies began
2. What is carbohydrate mouth rinse?
3. Rinsing frequency , type of CHO, CHO concentration, duration of the rinse, the duration of the trials, fed VS fasted state.
