Mele Kalikimaka!

We hope you are enjoying the holiday season, whether it be staying warm on the mainland or conquering the huge north shore waves. We are proud to have accomplished plenty during 2014.

Athletic Performance

01.10.2009 0

Reach the peak of athletic performance. Take your game to the next level by learning some fitness essentials. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful:

  • Eat more carbs
  • Supply the body with efficient energy fuel found in grains, starchy vegetables, fruits, low-fat dairy products, and carbohydrate-replacement drinks
  • Get enough water and electrolytes
  • Water is crucial for all sports activities—electrolytes are only important for extreme endurance exercise
  • Check out creatine monohydrate
  • Take 15 to 20 grams a day of this supplement for five or six days to improve performance of high-intensity, short-duration exercise (like sprinting) or sports with alternating low- and high-intensity efforts
  • Take a multivitamin
  • When your diet isn’t enough, extra vitamins and minerals will help your body get the nutrition it needs for exercise
  • Try vitamin C
  • Take 400 mg a day for several days before and after intense exercise to reduce pain and speed muscle strength recovery

These recommendations are not comprehensive and are not intended to replace the advice of your doctor or pharmacist. Continue reading the full athletic performance article for more in-depth, fully-referenced information on medicines, vitamins, herbs, and dietary and lifestyle changes that may be helpful.

Aside from training, nutrition may be the most important influence on athletic performance.1 However, in seeking a competitive edge, athletes are often susceptible to fad diets or supplements that have not been scientifically validated. Nevertheless, there is much useful research to guide the exerciser toward optimum health and performance.
