EP.62 – Nutrition Part 2

Podcast (27 Minutes) – Pre-, Intra-, Post-, Training, Workout, Game, Race day nutrition strategies

Nutrition around training and competition is a contentious topic that can be confusing and often overwhelming. 

In today’s episode, we cover:

  • Carb loading
  • Fat adaptation for endurance athletes (but not anaerobic athletes)
  • Meal timing and choices pre training 
  • Do you need sports drinks during competition (probably not)
  • The anabolic window (it is a real thing that is vital for elite and junior athletes)
  • Post workout meal choices

You should probably start by going back to part 1 and listening/watching it first, a lot of today’s episode builds on the topics we covered in the first episode.
