Welcome to The byrizz Rehab & Performance Podcast episode number 15. In this episode, I had the pleasure to gather a strong panel consisting of both active athletes with coaches and researchers at the highest level when talking about a very actual and also for some, a sensitive issue, nutrition. This talk aims to reach both active athletes of different ages, from younger to older athletes, coaches regarding their relationship to nutrition. To optimize performance you need to eat, move and sleep. When these three objects are not in balance you'll encounter fatigue and your performance will be poorer. It's okay to not be in balance all the time but you then need to plan your nutrition, your training, and your sleep habits throughout a planed imbalanced period, which is a more intensive period of training. The panel will share their experiences within nutrition and the expert in this talk, assistant professor Michael Svensson will share his insights and knowledge with theoretical and practical advice having in mind the athletes and his own experiences with nutrition.
Thanks to all guests for playing an important role to build this episode. You can follow them through social media at Linn Persson @ljmpersson, Moa Lundgren @moalundgreen, Martina Höök @martinahook and Michael Svennson @michael.svensson.
