Mars Bar maximum energy...

    I am playing 5aside this evening @ 5:30pm. I wish to score at least a hat-trick.

    At what time should I eat my Mars Bar (62.5g) to maximise the energy from it for the game? 4pm? or is that too late?

    I will be cycling back!

    Put the Mars bar in freezer compartment of fridge, do not eat.
    Run up behind opposing goalie and slap him on the back, meanwhile insert Mars bar in goalies arse. The cold and stiffness will render him useless, score your hat trick, pat goalie on back remove Mars bar, un-wrap and eat !
    Scrub the last bit.

    Agree with the above. Mars bar for goalie (or treat afterwards - only if not already used on goalie) no good for cycling fuel.

    I thought mars bars gave loads of glucose energy (they 'help you work, rest and play (football)'). There must be an optimal time to eat one before exercise.

    p.s. there is no freezer compartment in our fridge at work. Will keeping it in the fridge help?

    Ten minutes before kick off will be fine Maz.

    Following domtyler's advice, I got eight goals last night.

    I think Celtic will be scouting you next week.

    Snickers are better.
    And I've heard they don't hurt as much as Mars bars when inserted! :biggrin:
