Ronan McLaughlin’s Nutritional Blog (Interim)

Written by Kinetica fuelled, An Post CRC cyclist Ronan McLaughlin. After looking into pre-race nutrition in my last piece, I will be writing about how I fuel myself during a stage today. The energy I took on with my breakfast would be enough to fuel me at race pace for between one and two hours, but because we need to race for up to five or six hours at a time in some of the longer races it’s important to keep right on top of fuelling from the start. I... Read More

Building the Bulls: A Review to Date

After a very successful pre-season under the guidance of Strength and Conditioning Coach Tom Clough and Head Coach Francis Cummins, we are now 6 games into our 2013 Super League campaign. So where have we come from and where are we now from a nutritional perspective? The squad came together in early November, following some initial testing, when our pre-season period began. Pre-season was very tough on the boys as they were performing multiple sessions a day, generally consisting of gym based strength/power/hypertrophy work, pitch and gym based fitness blocks,...

A Question of Taste

  Sports science is having an increasing impact in the world of business, and the area of sports nutrition is no exception. Top sportsmen and women are always looking at ways of improving their performance, and do so in the knowledge that their bodies are similar to a Formula 1 car – no matter how good the engine and the driver, if you put in the wrong fuel, it won’t perform very well! As a consequence, athletes from all sports are always looking for new nutritional supplements that might give... Read More

Rob Palmer’s Nutrient Timing

  After completing my last competition in February, I weighed a whopping 89.1 kg. I was more than happy with the lifts, which consisted of 3 British records and more importantly 3 personal bests on the squat, bench press and total. It took me a step closer to the big 900kg total that I have been chasing for the last 3-4 years. One problem – I lift in the 83kg class! I was 6.1kg overweight. The strongest I have ever been, but fatter. The EPF European championship is being held... Read More

How Much Protein Should You Eat?

I’m often asked how much protein you should eat if you want to build muscle. There’s a lot of myths about this that have been built up over the years, one of the most common myths is that your body can only consume 30g of protein at a time, any more than that and you just end up weeing out the amino acids. This is one of the oldest myths around and it came about due to a paper that was published that reported those findings (I’ve not been able... Read More

TIMING OF PROTEIN INTAKE – MATT LOVELL Elite Sports Nutritionist (A THREE PART BLOG)

One of the most common questions regarding Sports Supplements is when to take them. In this three part blog Matt Lovell explains the research behind the timing of intake and goes on (later in the week) to explain how Kinetica products fulfill these requirements: 1) Timing is the most important determinant on sporting performance gains, rather than total intake. This highlights a useful role for supplementation. 2) Not all protein is equal: Protein quality determines the effect of protein 3) Sports where trauma, strength and endurance are considered in combination...
