ATHLETE COACHING PROGRAMME

THE ATHLETE COOK BOOK

I am a professional racing driver and I was introduced to Chris by my strength and conditioning coach to fine tune my performance/results. I have had nutritional support before but never like Chris. He offers a straightforward approach and is there every step of the way to support you. The results have been great and i feel better than ever within myself. The days of a boring healthy diet have gone! Cant recommend Chris enough.

Ep. 180 – Dedication to Education: Fruit Supplements to Accelerate Recovery

This week, we’re continuing our theme of ‘ultra-fast recovery’ and exploring the impact of fruit supplementation on indices of muscle damage. During periods of strenuous training and competition, the muscle is placed under a high degree of strain, especially when loaded eccentrically. As a result, exercise-induced muscle damage (EIMD) occurs. This results in delayed onset

This week, we examine a delicious recovery tool for the athlete’s toolbox: Cereal! Following depleting exercise, there’s an opportunity to accelerate glycogen replenishment when high amounts of carbohydrate are provided. Taking advantage of this first phase of glycogen replenishment increases in importance when an athletes next session is within close proximity – same day or
