Football is the most competitive sport in the world. What you put in - both in terms of your commitment to training and what you put into your body - will have a direct impact on what you get out of your performances on the pitch.
Your body needs to be ready for the physical exertion of a 90 minute game. It’s irrelevant how good you are with the ball at your feet if you don’t have the stamina or speed to win the ball back to begin with. The best players prove that week after week in the Premier League®.
If you already put in the extra hours on the training pitch to improve your game and tune your body, why wouldn’t you do the same with nutrition too?
If you consider that the average footballer runs 12km in a game, sweats 1.1 litres, burns over 1,500 calories and loses up to 2kg in body weight, it proves just how important it is for that player to prepare, fuel and recover the right way.
Nutrition helps players prepare more effectively pre-match, fuels enhanced performances during the match, and helps players recover more efficiently in between matches too. It can make the difference between winning and losing a 50/50 and, ultimately, winning and losing a match.
We know that what you put into your body is what you get out of your game.
Supplements are simply packaged nutrition solutions to performance issues. These packaged solutions should never be seen as a replacement to a daily diet that is rich in macro and micronutrients. Instead, their role is to support the specific performance needs of footballers and to help them improve their individual games.
Supplements either provide footballers with ingredients that they would not ordinarily get as part of their regular diet or provide them with macronutrients on a match day in a more convenient format.
