Performance Nutrition is a service used by coaches and athletes to achieve a range of goals:
Fuelling and recovery – a diver expends a great deal of energy during training, and puts stress on the structures in the body. Effective fuelling and recovery allows the diver to be properly energised through training, and to recover optimally before the next training load.
Adaptation – if a diver wants to change their body composition (more muscle, less body-fat etc), their diet through training has a large implication on the effectiveness of the training block. Performance nutrition helps divers have the right nutritional components in their plan to hit their goals.
Competition plan – competition days are different in terms of timing, energy expenditure and length compared to training days. An effective plan helps a diver to be optimally fuelled at exactly the right time of the day to perform at their best.
