Determining athlete fueling needs is a complex problem. Fuel usage is dictated by a number of factors, including: exercise intensity and duration; exercise type; diet history, acute pre exercise diet, and current energy stores; fitness level; and more. So how can you determine your athlete’s fueling needs? And what is the coach’s role when it comes to fueling recommendations? This session will explore the various factors that influence fuel usage, and how to make effective fueling recommendations to optimally support your athlete’s health and performance.
