Obstacle Race Nutrition

If you are gearing up to take part in one of the popular obstacle races held throughout the country, race day nutrition should be top of your priority list. Gwen Gothard – Musashi Performance Nutritionist has put together some important tips to help you not only get through the obstacle course but feel great before, during and after the race.

 

Getting the most out of your recovery time

When your body is put under pressure and muscles are pushed beyond their comfort zone, fatigue and muscle soreness can set in. After exercise you can feel sore, tired and weak as your body begins to repair the torn muscles during the natural recovery process.

Protein Supplements – the difference between whey and casein

Milk contains two main proteins: whey and casein, both commonly used in sports nutrition products. They are both high-quality proteins naturally rich in branch chain amino acids (BCAAs) essential for muscle growth and repair. Although both whey and casein come from milk there is a distinct difference between the two making it easy to determine which one is suitable for your training needs.

Winter Boot Camp Training

Early morning boot camp training or late night park sessions on a winters night – we have all been there. Whatever your drive to get out in the cold, putting strain on your body while neglecting your diet truly can result in a waste of time. Experts say diet influences 70-80% of the results and the remaining 20-30% comes from training.

Winter Bulk - Summer bodies are made in winter

Bodybuilders work hard throughout the winter months to build bulk. Focus then switches to fat burning and muscle sculpting throughout the spring and summer months.  The goal of bulking is to gain weight in muscle, not fat.  Strength training, quality nutrition and the correct use of supplements play key roles in developing muscle mass without experiencing significant weight gain from fat.

Bulking up for 2017

If you are ready to embark on a muscle building regime for 2017 you will need to ensure you are complementing your strength training with appropriate nutrition. Muscles need food to grow and without sufficient fuel (protein, carbohydrates and fats) muscle tissue will not develop.
