Become a better player – nutrition advice

For a team sport like football, you need endurance as well as technical skills and talent. Whether you are fighting for a place in the team or for your position on the pitch, hard work is the key to becoming a better player. An efficient training schedule and a healthy diet will help you to achieve your goals.

Endurance, agility and speed

All players have one thing in common, whether they play competitively or fight not to lose the match: they want to win every match. Team play, agility and speed are some of the most important requirements for success, but endurance must not be forgotten. Did you know, for example, that professional footballers run 13 km every match, of which 800 to 1200 m are short sprints?

Keeping up intensity

A training session or match can leave you physically exhausted. A healthy diet is essential to helping your body to prepare for such intensive physical activity. Due to the characteristic property of many team sports, viz. the combination of endurance with short bursts of energy, there is a particular need for creatine phosphate and anaerobic energy sources (energy that can be produced without using oxygen).

Are you unsure which foods you should eat? Are you looking for a way to change your nutrition habits so that you can become a better player? Etixx products are developed by a team of scientists who work together closely with top athletes in order to be able to guarantee the best results. A specific diet that is designed to allow you to access your energy reserves directly will help you to play energetically for the whole game.
