Understanding The Athlete Gene & Our Fueling System: Part 3

Performance metrics need to be considered at every stage. Recording weights and tracking times are no brainers, but nutrition and its effect on performance also needs to be monitored.

Different minerals are involved in breaking down fuel (food) into energy. By testing, monitoring, and manipulating those levels, you can have better control over how your engine works for you.

Nutrition during training and performance-time should not look exactly the same. Caloric restriction and post-workout recovery (such as 3Fuel) during training will force your body to adapt to a more efficient fuel system. When it's time to perform, pre-load on high-octane fuels (like carbs) for best results.
