Competitive football demands a great deal of physical fitness with players often covering over 10km during a 90 minute game. Therefore, it is vital that a balanced diet and training plan is followed to ensure individual skill is matched with sufficient levels of fitness.

Box 1


Football requires more than just high levels of cardiovascular fitness as players must also possess equal amounts of speed, power, agility and strength. The modern game has evolved dramatically through recent years and players are now beginning to realise that all aspects of physical fitness are now crucial for those looking to compete at the very highest levels. Therefore, the physical demands of training and competition must be complimented by a structured and detailed diet plan to ensure a player can train and compete at their optimum level. Not only can diet and supplementation encourage advanced energy levels, but they can also promote focus, power and recovery.

Helpful Tips

Energy to play

Carbohydrates are essential to fuel almost every type of activity and will help keep muscle glycogen concentrations high. When concentrations are low performance will be negatively affected. It has been shown that insufficient amounts of carbohydrates can also affect co-ordination as the Central Nervous System becomes fatigued. ONE Isotonic is an extremely effective carbohydrate drink which can be consumed before, during and after exercise to great effect.

Fuel to aid recovery and help growth

When the body becomes fatigued during a match or training session it is important to re-fuel with the nutrients that will help accelerate recovery and stimulate muscle growth. If the body has no fuel to aid recovery it may begin to break down muscle tissue for energy and actually reverse the physical effects of exercise. Protein and carbohydrates are regarded as essential for helping the body recover and grow after physical exercise. Recovery XS combines protein, carbohydrates and a number of other excellent ingredients to help promote recovery after exercise. Because protein plays such a pivotal role in the growth and maintenance of muscle it is always advised to consume protein rich food throughout the day; a convenient and tasty way of doing this is to snack on Beef Jerky.

Improving performance

Once the basic components of your diet are in place, such as carbohydrates and proteins, it is useful to look at products that can enhance your performance and push your fitness beyond your opponents. Creatine Monohydrate is one such product and is one of the most commonly used products for athletes looking to improve power, endurance and strength.

Looking after your body

Vitamins play a huge role in helping the body recover, stay healthy and also flush out any unwanted toxins or free radicals. A comprehensive multi vitamin such as Alpha Men (Super Multi Vitamin) should be a part of any serious athletes' daily supplementation. The impact placed on the entire skeletal system of a footballer is immense due to the volume and intensity of the movement's specific to the game. For this reason we strongly recommend the use of a product such as MSM, Glucosamine and Chondroitin which will improve the health of joints and cartilage.
