This easy-to-read book will help coaches of all activities and competitive levels understand the established scientific principles of nutrition that can facilitate athletic success. Authors Bernardot and Thompson help guide coaches through the huge muddle of nutrition information (and mis-information) with which they are regularly confronted. In addition, this book provides practical nutrition suggestions that coaches can apply immediately with known positive results.
Chapters address why nutrition is important for all coaches and athletes, vitamins, minerals, hydration, endurance, power, and team-sport nutrition, weight and body composition, strategies for building muscle, ergogenic aids, special environments (heat, cold, high humidity, high altitude), special considerations for young athletes, female athletes, and older athletes, and much, much more. Each chapter concludes with a concise summary and list of key points.
