    fuel for kettlebell training

    Primal Fuel
    Hey guys,

    I've been doing some work with the kettlebell lately. Incorporating mostly swings for now. A work out might consist of 7-8 sets of 20-30 swings (Until I am pretty winded). I have been off the workout path for while, due to a couple hip surgeries, and am trying to regain my fitness level. This is really getting my heart rate up nice. The workout probably takes 10-15 minutes.

    My question is what fuels short, very intense workouts, done at max-effort witht he kettlebell? Would it be fats or carbs? And does a workout like this need some carb refuel with a sweet potato or a banana or something along those lines? Thanks guys- Justin

    All food fuels your workouts. I don't notice any difference in my performance whether I eat high carb or high fat or both. As for "refueling," eat what you crave provided it's free of the usual suspects like seed oils and high fructose corn syrup.
    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

    Carbs. However, you shoud have sufficient amounts stored in your muscles for a 20 min workout. If not, have a banana before or after
