The best conditioning programs and technical instruction are beneficial only if the body's engine is properly fueled and ready to operate at peak efficiency. Far beyond the food pyramid, this course presents advanced nutritional concepts, including:a) timing of meals, fluid and training; b) digesting optimal ratios and quantities of energy nutrients, vitamins, and minerals; c) consuming fluids and electrolytes to avoid dehydration and hyper-hydration; d) identifying and maintaining a body composition capable of maximal power output with minimal excess weight for specific sports; and e) understanding the effects of travel, high altitude, and age on nutritional needs and performance.
