Race day nutrition for optimum triathlon performance
Sat 17 June 2017, 10:00 – 14:00 BST
Are you a triathlete or endurance athlete? Do you want to learn how to maximise your performance by optimising your race day nutrition? If you answered yes, then this is the workshop for you!
Trinamics is a new service based in Manchester that help athletes maximise performance and realise their athletic potential. We help athletes maximise their success by providing them with access to experts in biomechanical assessment, human performance analysis and coaching.
As part of our workshop series to help more people learn the secrets of maximising their success we have created a workshop based on race day nutrition. The workshop will focus on the value of racing with a tailored nutrition plan in place.
This workshop will provide an extensive look at the science and the application of planning, testing and sticking to your race day nutrition plans to help improve performance.
After lunch, we will dive into the science of strategies to enhance performance including hydration and carbohydrate loading. To finish, the floor is then open to ask any questions about nutrition for race day performance.
The workshop will be held at our St John street clinic and will start at 10.00 and finish at 14.00.
