Omnium Racing Requires A Blend Of Endurance And Power

Zachery Bell is a Canadian cyclist with a point to prove and he’s now even closer to reaching his dreams after taking silver in the recent track world championships in Melbourne, Australia. 
 Omnium cyclists like Zach capture the spirit of competition by tackling six distinct races that demonstrate their speed, strength and stamina. Omnium racing requires a exceptional blend of endurance and power as it takes an entire day to complete, and each individual race demands explosive acceleration. Keeping energy levels topped off is paramount as Zach has to be as fresh for the last race as he was for the first.

Zach is a great example of a man who has the focus and determination to view each part of his event as a whole and to use his brain as well as his power to keep on winning. After completing his Australian event, Zach was smiling when he told he was “one step closer to that London Gold today in the Omnium at the World Champs. Six grueling events made me happy for my Herbalife24 Rebuild Endurance – it kept me in the fight till the end.”

Zach talks about his performance here:

Road Racing Cyclist Review Of Herbalife 24

“Throughout my cycling career I’ve used a wide range of energy and recovery products from a variety of manufacturers. I can safely say that the Herbalife 24Nutrition range is the best I’ve used, by a significant margin. The range covers all bases for riding, recovering and even healthy snacks and meal substitutes.”

The Herbalife 24 range, everything the athlete needs in the course of a day. Hey, is that why it’s called 24?

A typical training ride for me is somewhere between three and five hours so I start my day with a bowl of porridge supplemented with a few scoops of the Herbalife Formula 1 Sport powder (as suggested by Monsieur Kay, sous-chef at Maison d’Reid Parc). I take two bottles on the ride, if it’s a long ride I fill both with Herbalife Prolong (a 7:1 carb to protein formulation that increases endurance whilst reducing fatigue and muscle damage) or, for a shorter ride, one bottle with Prolong and the other with Herbalife Hydrate (an isotonic formulation of minerals and electrolytes to replace those lost through sweat). I also take two of the Herbalife Protein bars which help to prevent me from feeling empty and are a great reward for completing any intervals in my training session.

A little will get you a surprisingly long way. Note the additional sachets of Hydrate which can be used if an extra water stop is required while on the road.

Once back from the ride I use my Herbalife 24 Protein Shaker (with whisk ball for easy mixing – genius!) to mix up a combination of Rebuild Endurance and Rebuild Strength – I feel this gives me the best combination of muscle repair and glycogen replacement without unwanted bulk. Incidentally the two products combine to give a lovely chocolate vanilla flavour.”
