Keeping up to date on sports, supplementation and wellness

Below are a series of articles useful for the sportsman and the not-sporty person to inform themselves about the importance of nutrition for physical and psychological well-being.

The importance of vitamins in post-training recovery

The muscle recovery phase is frequently overlooked, despite its significance in the training regimen of every athlete. The recovery process of muscle fibers commences shortly after the conclusion of a training session, whether it be anaerobic training involving strength exercises like weightlifting and bodybuilding, or aerobic training involving low-intensity, longer-duration activities like endurance sports and cycling.
As a training regimen, CrossFit has been experiencing a surge in popularity over the last few years, leading to an increasing number of gyms offering it throughout Italy. It is a complex strength training program, whose chief characteristic is its high intensity in terms of energy consumption. It is founded upon a diverse range of exercises, techniques, and, thus, equipment.
Cycling is a sport that involves large amounts of energy expenditure, something we can notice ourselves by merely looking at the exhaustion displayed on the faces of elite athletes that tackle the roughest trails out there.

Running, walking, and cycling are considered aerobic exercise, meaning they rely on endurance and cellular energy metabolism through sufficient oxygen supply and consumption. The body’s major muscles engage in a rhythmic pattern over an extended duration, resulting in heightened oxygen consumption by the body. To meet the increased demand, the latter raises both the breathing and heart rates.

Individuals practicing sports must pay particular attention to their nutrition, as the food we consume can significantly support muscle metabolism. This holds especially true for individuals engaged in rigorous physical activity and endurance sports.

The development of muscle mass is achieved through a combination of exercise and proper nutrition. It has the ability to counteract the decay processes associated with the aging process, although these processes can also be influenced by nutritional deficiencies and insufficient physical activity.
