The course begins with a quiz to test your knowledge of what you already know about sports nutrition.
02: Importance of Nutrition
Performance isn’t 100 per cent determined by nutrition, but it plays a huge role. In this section, Jennie discusses the importance of nutrition, particularly in young players, and looks at key food groups.
03: The Importance of Carbohydrates
Why are carbohydrates important for fuelling performance? This module discusses the main macronutrient that provides energy and looks at how carbs support enhanced performance.
04: Recommended Carbohydrate Intake
The amount of carbohydrates a player requires depends on multiple factors and is explored in this section. How to alter the plan due to player goals, position, amount and type of training, and if it’s a matchday is also discussed
05: Training Nutrition
What a player consumes before, during and after training is very important and in this lesson Jennie looks at the types of food, and quantities, that can be taken on board during a training day to help fuel the body and optimise performance.
06: Matchday Nutrition
Matchday nutrition plans should be individualised and the content of the plan will depend on player position and kick-off time. In this lesson, Jennie offers advice on the nutrition timetable during matchday, and shares some example plans.
