Regardless of your sport, eating to fuel your body is an essential element that is often ignored, leading to nutritional deficits, chronic tiredness and even anaemia. Pure Results sports performance training in Portishead delivers nutritional advice that is relevant to your particular sport, whether it be strength-based, endurance-based, or one requiring elements of both.

Exercising for several hours a day requires a careful analysis of nutritional needs to reach optimum performance. Poor nutritional intake will lead to a breakdown of muscle rather than maintaining and improving muscular strength acquired through strength and resistance training. Sports performance training in Portishead enables athletes to reach their maximum potential whilst consuming foods to sustain intensive exercise over the long term.

As well as eating a balanced diet with an adequate calorie intake, an athlete will need to include certain supplements to aid recovery and replacement of nutrients which are essential to continue with elite level training. For sports performance training in Portishead, you will be guided by a carefully prepared nutrition plan, structured to deliver the right amounts of nutrients to enable you to improve your fitness levels and sport-specific techniques.

What you eat, and when you eat it, has a significant effect on performance. Eating correctly pre- and post-exercise ensures the delivery of vital nutrients to your muscles. Anaerobic exercise depletes glycogen stored within muscles, and it is essential that this is quickly replaced to prevent the breakdown of muscle and reduce the onset of DOMS, the dreaded delayed-onset muscular soreness or stiffness through adequate hydration.

As well as eating a balanced diet with sufficient calorie intake, sports performance training in Portishead includes advice on taking supplements to aid recovery and replacement of nutrients which are essential to continue with elite level training, including creatine and whey protein which contains glutamine, an amino acid which stimulates glycogen and protein synthesis.
