SUP Athlete: Best Performance
An athlete’s goal is to achieve best performance. Optimal training and nutrition are key factors in improving performance and health. SUP athletes have rigorous training schedules. When concentrating on training, focus on adequate recovery and nutrition are often minimized.
It was my dream to be a pro athlete, but I was put on the academic path. I got my master’s degree in nutrition and my PhD in exercise sport science to learn everything I could to improve performance. I am fascinated by achieving one’s highest potential. The human body and mind are incredible and adapt to any and all conditions. Imagine if you gave your body the very best conditions for training, recovery, and nutrition? How would you feel and how would you perform? That is what this column “Best Performance” is all about.
My goal is to highlight proven sport science techniques to improve performance and interview coaches, athletes, and industry experts for their personal experience. The areas I will emphasize include reviewing training programs, recovery techniques, sport psychology, fueling, and hydration. I’m stoked to delve deeper. What questions do you have for me?
