Eat well to train well

Eating to fuel training and optimal recovery doesn’t just mean eating well immediately before or after training – it’s about eating well at every meal! The food we eat doesn’t just give us energy to train, it nourishes us and provides our body with the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and grow stronger.

Eating at competitions

The nutritional demands of a swim meet are quite different to a normal training day. You should carefully consider what and when you are eating in order to maximise your racing performance.

Eating on a rest day

The physical demands on your body change on a rest day, therefore your diet should change to reflect this. If you continue to eat as much on a rest day as you do on a training day or if you eat too little then you risk negatively impacting your body composition , recovery, adaptation and immune system.
