Description

Sports Nutrition in the Real World - Translating Research into Reality

Kim Schwabenbauer

The media is quick to interpret a single research study in sports nutrition as a new fad or blanket statement for all athletes. Determining the validity of the source, as well as, practical applications for real world athletes is critical to attempting to improve exercise performance for hot topics like beets, beta-alanine, caffeine and "training-low" on carbohydrates.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify the mechanisms of caffeine as an ergogenic aid and discuss the benefits of ingestion, as well as the appropriate use among athletes.

  3. Understand the real value of “training low” (in a fasted or low glycogen state) for athletes and evaluate whether it is of benefit to that particular athlete for training adaptation.
  4. Interpret several research studies indicating how inorganic nitrate ingestion might alter the physiological responses to exercise, as well as state applications and practical recommendations.
