High-Intensity Day Performance Plate

What do we mean by high intensity? We understand that for elite and everyday athletes, not all days look the same. Some people like to finely tune their intake each day to reflect their activity, whilst for others, this level of thought and detail is not as important. 

High-intensity days are those where physical activity is above average. Some examples of this may be: 

  • A strenuous training session (7 or above out of 10)
  • AM & PM trainings
  • Training + lots of movement (cycling to work, activity with children, manual labour job etc)
Quality protein – RepairCarbs/Fibre – Fuel/Re-fuelNon-fibrous Veges – Protect
Lower fat options, better possibly around workout timesLower GI, better possibly pre-workout E.g. Tomatoes, peppers, asparagus, cucumber
Higher fat options, better possibly away from activityHigher GI, better possibly post-workout
Should I be doing this?

Like all answers, it depends. Some just like the flexibility of flipping between lower and higher carb days to match activity/intensity of activity. Find what works for you, and ask your coach if you want some help.
