Performance: By now, you understand that when you participate in athletic training and competition, your body requires a specialized nutrition and supplement program for maximum performance. There are several ways an athlete can prepare for competition, but they will not be effective unless all necessary steps are taken. As with any physical training, whether resistance or endurance, there is one major factor that will affect your results. That is your will to work out seriously and continuously.If you cannot push yourself, training will become pointless and ineffective. As an athlete, your strength is more important than appearance. For example, if you only perform arm exercises in an attempt to have "big guns" then you are forgetting that nobody ever scored a touchdown by flexing or dunked just by posing. A high intensity workout that promotes muscle growth to all parts of the body is important. Different sports require the usage of some muscle groups more than others, as an example, soccer requires leg strength more than the arms. In basketball building speed, vertical leap, and explosion are imperative, for baseball core strength and quickness are key and in football explosive strength with strong balance are a must. How are you going to get the job done.
Why Supplements?While it's important to eat a balanced diet containing adequate amounts of all of the essential nutrients, scientific research has shown that a balanced diet alone does not provide sufficient nutrition to individuals undergoing strenuous physical activities. You should also include the supervision of a health-care professional who can help you fine-tune your diet to meet your specific sports performance needs. For example, endurance athletes, such as marathon runners, require twice the RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance) of protein and total calories, while strength athletes, who rely on large muscles, require even more protein than endurance athletes do. Moreover, dietary surveys conducted on athletic individuals of both sexes show a dietary deficiency of one to several essential vitamins and minerals. The scientific evidence indicates that a diet containing adequate amounts of macronutrients does not necessarily contain adequate amounts of nutrients. Due to these special requirements, athletic people need to approach nutrition as a skill! And, as with any skill, you need the proper tools to perfect it. Workout Recovery: Your nutrition goes hand in hand with your strength training, as you probably have heard "you are what you eat." What is the point of slaving in the gym if you aren't going to feed yourself the right foods containing the building blocks of muscle? Here is a basic overview: Muscles are built with protein; your body runs off of carbohydrates and sugars, and uses vitamins for "fine polishing" as an extra boost for growth. Supplements are used to give you those essentials missed in your diet. Some basic supplements are whey protein, creatine, and amino acids. It takes time to see results, regardless of what ads may claim. Most people would think making a diet is difficult, but all you need is a scale and a calculator. First find your body weight in kilograms (to find your weight in Kg just divide your weight in pounds by 2.2) and multiply by 55. The resulting number is your target daily calorie intake. Next, take your weight in Kg and multiply by 1.5. This number will be your target protein intake. To figure out your carbohydrate intake multiply your weight in Kg by 9. This is all you need to target in you diet, and then put it into action with a balanced diet of fruit, vegetables, and grains. When all else fails use common sense! Combine this with a strong workout and you will see results.
