In sports nutrition we have always heard carbs carbs carbs: the importance of refueling the muscles after exercise to allow optimal recovery and maximize the performance in the next training session.
Is muscle refueling the path to optimal recovery?
While it is true that we need our muscles fueled to perform our next training session, this simply ensures that we have fuel to complete the session. It does not mean that we are recovering and adapting optimally to the training session we have just done, which is in fact exactly what we are looking for as an athlete to improve performance.
TheSportsTechnician.com was founded in May 2009. The concept of the business was the idea of a guy called Stuart Middlemiss. With over 20 years experience in the sports retail industry, holding key roles with most of the well known sports retailers in the UK and latterly with, which was then the biggest sports retailer in Europe. The aim of the SportsTechnician.com website is to provide a great service to the public, not only by offering them the best sports performance products from the best Sports wear brands worldwide, but to help educate the consumer on sports supplements and the technologies and benefits of those products.
New sports nutritional supplements products hit the market every day. There are so many supplements today that it is almost impossible to know each product that is available. Many athletes stick to a product they know very well and stick with it. Others feel that the ‘old’ ones just don’t do the job and switch to something new. Products are also getting better. But there is nothing wrong with the ‘old’ ones.
When you are taking regular exercise be it going to the gym or training for a marathon, it is vital that you are eating enough of the correct foods.
The key ingredient if you are doing a lot of cardiovascular work is carbohydrates. They provide glycogen that feeds that muscles and helps you to maintain high levels of energy throughout the training week. Protein is also key as this helps to repair the muscle tissue that gets broken down during training.
Muscle Building â Sports Nutrition â Eat for Optimal Health and Get More Out of Your Body – Faster! Part 1
Everywhere you look, itâs either the best supplements to get ripped, or top foods to max muscle gains â it seems like eating to boost health and performance simultaneously isnât important, isnât possible or itâs simply too boring to talk about.
Donât become another victim to eating just for looks and performance.Â Itâs very important to eat the right foods for the right reasons, and staying healthy is definitely one of those reasons.Â Remember, if you arenât healthy, everything youâre working towards, and all the training youâve done means nothing.Â
Strength Training â Sports Nutrition â Using Cheat Meals, not Days, to Keep Your Cravings in Check
I have found when corresponding with many gym goers and fitness enthusiasts, that there is a massive disconnect in what they say and practice depending on the day of the weekÂ
These are people who train hard, eat right and do all things theyâre supposed to do to the point that theyâre on auto pilot, soaring towards their goal.Â Then, something strange happens.Â One day, usually on the weekend, all of these habits seem to walk to the back of the plane, kick open the emergency exit door, and jump out without a second thought.
Some of the biggest excuses I hear about healthy eating, be it for health reasons, or to lose weight or gain muscle are Â â âhealthy food doesnât taste good,â (which is a serious problem because if your food doesnât taste good, itâs very unlikely youâll stick to the plan) âit takes too long to prepare healthy foodâ, and, âitâs too complicated.âÂ These excuses are usually the result of thinking you need to slave over a hot stove preparing 6 course meals all day long.Â Nothing could be further from the truth.

One of the most popular strength magazines from the golden era of strength training, the 20âs, 30âs and 40âs, was called âStrength and Health.âÂ If youâre fortunate enough to get your hands on a copy and read through it, youâll notice that thereâs an emphasis on developing total strength, not only of the muscles, but the heart, lungs, tendons, everything.Â They also focused on developing optimal health.Â
Strength and Health wasnât the only publication with the word Health in the title.Â In fact, the thinking of the time was that health was one of, if not the main reason for developing superior physical capabilities.Â The thought of developing superior strength without superior health would have been laughable.Â Unfortunately, that isnât the case today.
So, do you have to eat big to get big?
If you read articles pertaining to putting on mass from any of the muscle comics, they usually tell you that you need to eat, and eat BIG!Â Read enough of these and youâll be brainwashed to the point of pile driving the plate into your mouth at the end of your meal!
