"A pouch of Vespa® CV-25 before every game generates long lasting energy like no other product! Vespa® reduces lactic acid and helps my body recover after every game." -Shane Doan, Captain of the Phoenix Coyotes
VESPA is the leading supplement in the ice hockey market. From the Canadian National Team and NHL Super-Stars to the local clubs and youth ice hockey teams VESPA & VESPA JR give players natural sustained energy and by stabilizing glycogen levels maintain their mental clarity and motor skills throughout the game.
Whether you play roller hockey, soccer, basketball, rugby, lacrosse or other team sports where sustained levels of aerobic activity and sharp motor skills (i.e. hand to eye coordination) are necessary one VESPA or VESPA JR 45 minutes before your game will give you the endurance and mental clarity necessary to play your best!
For most marathoners it is recommended that one VESPA is taken 45 minutes prior to the race and another at the half marathon mark. For a half-marathon distance a single VESPA is recommended. Training: For most marathoners one VESPA prior to the workout, especially long runs.
Again a VESPA 45 minutes prior to the start with a VESPA every 2-4 hours. This depends upon the intensity of the ride (2 hours if you are riding hard and fast / 4 hours if you are cruising).
Triathalon / Ironman Training:
For most athletes even a “Sprint” Triathalon is an endurance event. For sprint distance a single VESPA 45 minutes prior to the event should be sufficient.
For Olympic distance 1-2 VESPA are recommended depending upon your goal time.
For Half & Full Ironman events a VESPA 45 minutes prior to the start with a VESPA taken every 2-3 hours is recommended.
For Ultras VESPA is recommended 45 minutes prior to starting the run with VESPA taken at intervals of 2-4 hours depending upon the intensity, conditions, and the athletes own experience using the product. Fueling should be performed in between taking VESPA or a low constant intake of sugars/carbs. Most ultra distance runners using VESPA have found their fueling needs are lower using VESPA during their runs.
Figure Skating, X/C Skiing/Biathlon, Tennis & Dance:
VESPA is an excellent training tool for athletes looking to optimize their performance. VESPA is not a silver bullet. It will not replace training, rest, stretching, a diet that works for the athlete, a stable lifestyle, etc. but given these things are in place VESPA will allow the athlete to train harder, allow the body to adapt to the increases in stress better and recover faster.
For training use VESPA sparingly, that is use VESPA at longer time intervals than you would in a race. This helps develop the body’s other mechanisms for increasing fat metabolism. This does not mean eliminating VESPA from your training regime altogether because VESPA’s effect of lowering blood lactates is important toward enhancing recovery.
