AFL...one of the great Aussie sports known around the world for its high level of cardiovascular ability and extreme athleticism. This great sport is highly demanding across many areas of physicality. AFL athletes need to be able to train for long distance running, fast sprinting, explosive jumping and kicking power, and physical strength. This means ALOT of time training in the gym and on the footy field. Because of this high volume of training, footy player NEED to ensure they are feeding their body the fuel to keep them fire going on the field, along with the nutrients required to repair their bodies.
Australia’s best AFL players maintain a large supplement regime to support their bodies in such a demanding physical sport. By using BCAA’s after and during training and games they ensure they are feeding their muscles to allow for the fastest recovery. Combined with a high quality WPC through the day they guarantee their muscles are receiving the essential proteins required for recovery and growth. They also ensure they are fully hydrated by replenishing the electrolytes they lose through sweat with an electrolyte supplement (Lyte-caps).
To allow themselves to push to their physical limits they consume a strong but safe pre-workout (pre-30 is approved for all Australian sports) to give their muscles the extended endurance while stimulating their minds to work faster and make quicker decisions on the field. Finally they need to ensure their joints are strong and mobile, this is why all AFL athletes who want to maintain power and flexibility through their knees must consume fish oil.
