Keeping hydrated is an absolute must if you want to perform at your best. Electrolytes like sodium, potassium and magnesium, are lost through sweat and need to be replaced. Water alone is not enough.
Carbohydrate is the essential fuel your body needs during your match, but your store is relatively small. Depleting your store of carbohydrate, known as glycogen depletion, can happen towards the end of a match. Glycogen depletion makes you feel like you have no energy and your legs are like lead.
Use caffeine for that extra edge before and during your match. Caffeine contributes to an increase in endurance performance and capacity. It also helps to increase your concentration and reaction time. That means you can stay sharp all the way to the final whistle!
Muscles become sore and stiff when they are stressed during a match. The depletion of muscle glycogen (muscle carb stores) can impair muscle function resulting in fatigue and reduced exercise performance. The right mix of protein and carbohydrate will help you recover after an intense match and turn up ready to perform at your next training session.
