Nutrition is integral to how well an athlete performs. It takes equivalent status to training and can even make or break their chances of winning a competition. A sports nutritionist’s job is to recommend the best possible diet and supplements for the specific individual and ensure that they maintain peak physical fitness.
Sports nutrition studies the body’s use of nutrients during sports, and the role that advanced supplements play in an athlete’s performance. An athlete's dietary requirements are completely different from that of an avergae person, especially if they are spending most of their day in training.
Protein contains amino acids which act as the building blocks of the body. These chemicals are used to build and repair muscles, as well as aid in the production of hormones and enzymes.
Studies show that nutrition has a greater effect on strength and bone mass than exercise. Though the two aspects go hand-in-hand, exercise becomes ineffective without proper nutrition.
As strength and maintenance of strength is the main objective of sports nutrition, muscles will have to take the center stage. Repair, maintenance, and building of muscles will require protein.
