Did you know that the average rowing training session could burn upwards of 1000kcal? Or that at the top level, an athlete could need to be consuming 7000kcal per day?
How and when those calories are replaced can make the difference between your athletes reaching their goals and not.
Diet and nutrition significantly affect performance; what we drink and eat before, during, and after training affects our health, body mass and body composition, as well as performance and recovery. An optimum diet can help to ensure optimum health and maximise performance. An inadequate diet could not only lead to a poor performance, but it could also compromise health.
