Enhance your training performance with a balanced sports nutrition program. Create meals and snacks with a mixture of quality protein, complex low glycemic index carbohydrates, and healthy fats. Keep hydrated for effective training performance.
Training Performance And Nutrient Timing
Nutrient timing enhances your training performance. Pre-workout, mid-workout and post-workout are important stages for nutrient requirements.
A pre-exercise meal is to top up liver glycogen which depletes overnight during your sleep. Avoid eating any new foods, too much fiber or spices. Avoid overeating. In order to prevent ‘hitting the wall’ muscle glycogen stores must be topped up regularly during extended exercise. The amount of quality nutrition varies depending on duration, body weight, intensity, training status and goals.
Enhance your workout with an easily digestible carbohydrate that enters the bloodstream quickly. This helps to offset fatigue and sustain continued training. Replenish is great for this.
Whey protein is easily digested and has a high concentration of essential amino acids compared to other protein sources. It is unrivaled for its ability to increase muscle mass in the post-workout period.
Coconut water is a natural electrolyte perfect before, during or after a workout. Water with the juice of a lemon added helps alkalise the body. Additionally, an essential sports drink powder Replenish will help power you through a workout.
Ditch The Sugar
Especially relevant is removing refined sugar from your diet. Refined sugar causes inflammation which increases aches and pains.
