Protein is an essential nutrient that mainly serves as the “building blocks” for the cells in our bodies. It is a broad term that accounts for a vast number of molecules. Protein structures are made up of combinations of 21 smaller molecules, called amino acids. Aside from structural and functional roles, protein can also be broken down to function as a source of energy
Strength and power are two terms that generally refer to short, explosive exercise efforts. They are essential components of many sports, and athletes often develop specialised training to maximise their efficiency. Many metabolic processes contribute to strength and power, and utilising relevant nutritional concepts can help to maximise force production.
Ultra-endurance refers to your body’s capacity to sustain exercise for a very long time period. It is mainly determined by the body’s ability to generate and utilise energy through multiple metabolic processes. Ultra-endurance is growing in popularity, with events that last hours, days, and even weeks becoming more common in the athletic and recreational fields.
Endurance refers to your body’s capacity to sustain exercise for an extended period. It is determined largely by the ability to distribute oxygen around the body and utilise it for energy production within the muscles. Many sporting disciplines require an endurance component, and in many cases, it is the key determinant for success.
