-> Protein for muscles repair and growth:-
Protein is the second most important nutrient for swimmers after carbohydrates. Proteins are broken down by our body and converted into amino acids, which have multiple uses in cell function. This includes boosting the immune system and helping to rebuild muscles after exercises.
According to the Australian sports commission guide, depending on the volume and intensity of exercise male swimmers are recommended to consume 1.4 -1.7 grams per kg of body weight every day. And women swimmers are recommended to consume 15% lesser protein than male swimmers.
Hence any male swimmer weighing 60 Kg should consume 84- 102 grams (60×1.4-1.7) of protein every day. And women swimmers weighing 60 Kg should consume 71.4- 86.7 grams of protein every day. MFF Whey protein 80 is a dairy source protein for swimmers which helps them to fulfill their protein diet very easily and helps to achieve the required goals.
-> Energy to train:-
Carbohydrates are the major source of energy to train for any swimmer. It is very important to take the right amount of carbohydrates at right time to get the best results. It is also important to understand to have a good swim or race, you need to start with a full load of muscle-stored glycogen, as pre-exercise muscle glycogen plays a major role in determining overall exercise performance. For the first 60-90 minutes of a workout or race the primary fuel our body uses if muscle glycogen, and complex carbohydrate replenishment as soon as possible after exercise, when the body is most receptive to carbohydrate uptake, maximizes both glycogen synthesis and storage.
MyFitFuel™ Isotonic Instant Energy is a simple carbohydrate that could be easily mixed with water and used as a carbohydrate drink before, during, and after a workout. It helps to replenish the energy lost during workouts and makes you prepare for the next session.
-> Increasing Performance and maintenance:-
Every good game starts and ends with good training and good nutrition. As the intensity of your training increases, the requirement for protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals increases. Once your intakes of required nutrients are in place we need something more to increase the performance. So here comes the MyFit Fuel™ Creatine 200 mesh which is pure creatine, most commonly used by athletes and swimmers looking to increase power, endurance, strength, and speed. Creatine supplementation may improve performance in high-intensity, short-duration (less than 30 seconds) activities, such as sprints. Creatine also helps you recover more quickly from training sessions, which could help you train harder.
Many swimmers don’t pay much attention to fluids because they are surrounded by water. However many factors such as warm pool water, warm air temperature, and high humidity can lead to dehydration in less than 30 minutes. Dehydration can hurt the performance of even the fittest swimmer. So it is recommended to:-
a). Drink a glass or two of fluid before 2 hours of practice.
b). When you are swimming, keep a fluid bottle next to the pool and drink 140- 295ml (5-10 ounces) of water every 15 to 20 minutes.
c). Drink sports drinks whenever you have a high-intensity workout or when you practice for more than 1 hour.
