By now, I don’t need to explain to you that your athletes’ performance has a pretty low glass ceiling if nutrition isn’t a focus both in and out of practice and competition.
Or that they aren’t going to address this issue with any consistency without your help.
Because when you’re a teenager, fast food and ice cream seems like a pretty good idea.
And it tastes good.
You just can’t take it to the next level when the dollar menu is one of the staples of your diet.
Being a successful coach isn’t *only* about knowing which workouts to run and when, how much to lift or which offensive and defensive schemes best fit your current crop of talent.
(Though it’s not a bad place to start…)
You’ve got to add nutrition to the mix.
Last night I was at our indoor track banquet talking to a group of athletes and nutrition came up.
My best hurdler, a New England Championships finalist last spring, said:
“I used to drink soda every day. Now look what you’ve done to me!”
…as she holds out an empty bottle of water.
A member of my school record setting (by 2.51 seconds), runner up at All States 4x200m relay team said:
“You’ve got me eating healthy now. I was eating an apple on the way here and I thought to myself, ‘What am I doing? Why am I eating this?'”
What’s my point?
This stuff matters. And your athletes will buy into it if you give them easy answers and simple solutions to their nutritional questions.
Mine have. And the results are clear and undeniable.
Now, I’m no expert on sports nutrition.
But I’ve found a resource that allows me to give solid, factual options and ideas to my athletes without having to do a bunch of extra work that I don’t have time for.
And that is Jeff Cavaliere’s Teen Sports Nutrition Blueprint.
If I had to dream up a sports nutrition resource that would give me and my athletes everything we need to do and know without adding more than 10 minutes to my day, this would be it.
If you haven’t invested in a copy yet, I highly recommend you do.
Jeff’s launch ends tonight at 11:59pm Pacific time, so if you want to save over 33% on what is, in my opinion, the best sports nutrition resource on the market, you would be wise to grab your copy now.
