You get out of your fencing practice what you put into it. We all know that. We also all know that you get out of your body what you put into it.
Put in good hard work into your fencing and you’ll get good results on the strip.
Put good food into your body and you’ll get good results out of your body.
But what is good food? We’ve all heard about how you should be focused on your calorie intake when you’re in intensive training for a competition. Olympic athletes eat rigid regimens in the months before qualification and of course before the games themselves. However we fencers aren’t training for big competitions all the time. Even regular season fencing competitions are relatively sporadic – one or two per month. Eating good and healthy thru the day, especially when you have school and practice afterwards, is a whole different thing.
