SOCCER NUTRITION ESSENTIALS
Unlike endurance sports, soccer consists of a high-intensity intermittent activity where players alternate between periods of standing still, walking, jogging, running and sprinting. From energy intake for training, to recovery strategies post-match, we’ve put together the key nutritional considerations to help you fuel such high-intensity actions.
Designed to help you fuel before and during training. With a range of different products including gels, bars and powders.
Recovery starts as soon as you finish. Known as the 'training window', which lasts up to 30 minutes post exercise.
Starting exercise in a hydrated state can kick start your performance, helping you to maintain hydration throughout an event.
The more active you are, the more protein you need in your diet to help rebuild and prevent muscle breakdown.
HOW TO FUEL SOCCER TRAINING
Soccer players cover between 10-13 km per game, but the physical demands of training sessions are considerably less. Total distance on a training day may range from 2-6 km depending on the day of the week and when the training session is completed in relation to the match.
