The quantity and quality of macronutrients consumed as part of our daily diet play a key role in our ability to exercise, on the training responses that occur, and on our overall general health.
In order to optimise the interaction between our diet and physical performance, it is vital to understand the role that each macronutrient (protein, carbohydrate, lipid (fat)) plays in energy metabolism.
Specifically chosen, scientifically formulated nutritional supplements can significantly help to reduce or eliminate any deficiencies in our dietary choices, and in addition, they can function as an essential support for athletes who require peak performance from their bodies.
Types of Sport
Any sport contains three basic phases:
- AEROBIC/ENDURANCE SPORTS
- ANAEROBIC/STRENGTH/STRENGTH-POWER SPORTS
- INTERMITTENT/INTERVAL/REPETITION SPORTS (CONTAIN BOTH AEROBIC AND ANAEROBIC ELEMENTS)
BEFORE - DURING - AFTER
FOR EACH SPORT, EACH OF THE THREE PHASES HAS ITS' OWN INDIVIDUAL DEMANDS. FAILURE TO FOLLOW A NUTRITIONALLY BALANCED DIET AND MEET THE BODY'S PHYSIOLOGICAL DEMANDS CAN POSE DETRIMENTAL TO SPORTS PERFORMANCE.
