SIS - AFL and energy

SIS - AFL and energy

AFL players have high to very high daily energy expenditure. These athletes require substantial volumes of fuel around training and matches, predominantly in the form of…

SIS - Fuelling for AFL

SIS - Fuelling for AFL

AFL football takes a lot out of the body, from the toll of physical contact to depleting energy stores. The physiological demand of AFL players is position specific, with midfield players covering 12-15km each match and defenders needing to be strong and powerful to match the opposition, requiring shorter bursts of sprinting and anaerobic activities. This makes nutrition an important factor to AFL performance, with a player relying on a variety of foods to maximize performance. Typically, an…

SIS - Hydrating in the Summer months

INCREASED ENVIRONMENTAL TEMPERATURE The increased summer temperatures make hydration strategies significantly more important. Higher environmental temperatures place greater stress on the body during exercise causing increased sweat rates. If higher sweat rates are combined with incorrect fuelling strategies then the risk of dehydration is dramatically increased. Although sweating is a great mechanism for cooling the body down, fluid loss equating to > 2 % body mass (1.4 kg in a 70 kg person)…

SIS - Fuelling for game day

GAME DAY -1 The day prior to the game, the midfielders increase their carbohydrate intake to ‘carbohydrate loading’ levels. They achieve this by consuming 8-10g of carbohydrate for every kilogram of bodyweight over the course of the day. Ideally, they are consuming a meal or snack every two hours to meet these increased requirements. Up to twenty-four hours pre-game, the carbohydrates consumed are of low to moderate glycaemic index. After this they switch almost exclusively to high glycaemic…
