Between each session, a balanced diet is necessary, both to recover and prepare for the next one.
To respond to the intensity of the effort, it is important to:
- Prioritize protein intake (poultry, lean meat, 3 dairy products/day); to repair and strengthen muscles damaged by movement, contact and shock.
- Increase carbohydrate intake because energy comes mainly from glycogen.
- Limit the intake of "bad" fats, favoring the "good" ones with vegetable oils (olive, rapeseed, soy) in moderate quantities.
- Avoid fatty foods such as fried foods and cooked fats.
