WHEN a boxer is in camp it is not uncommon for them to be out of their house or hotel (or wherever they may be staying during a training camp) for prolonged periods during the day due to the demanding training schedule required, alongside having to travel lengthy distances between the gym and their accommodation. This means that some fighters will go long periods without eating or drinking and this may result in them consuming undesirable foods due to a lack of preparation or knowledge. Therefore, by preparing a range of easily accessible snacks, food and drink that can be conveniently stored in a fighter’s training bag will ultimately promote good nutritional habits alongside supporting the performance and body-composition goals of the fighter.
