Avoid an accidental drug ban – plus 4 more reasons to use a nutritionist

The recent Maria Sharapova drug ban shocked the sporting world, but Robert Seaborne explains how a nutritionist can be vital to supplement advice and more


5. Expertise after the weigh-in

AFTER all the training sessions, then the weigh-in, a boxer needs to supply fuel to the body that will aid them through the fight. A sports nutritionist can carefully plan out a tailored nutrition plan that can supply the energy, hydration and protein to prepare a boxer in a short period of time post-weigh-in. This means the boxer can go into the ring with the best nutrition possible. It’s clear how big role a registered (preferably SENr) nutritionist can play in aiding a boxer’s training, weigh-in and fight preparation. Avoiding detrimental weight-making practices can facilitate better performances in training and carefully supplying the nutrients to the body post-weigh-in could make all the difference when a boxer enters the ring.
