Nutrition for young boxers – the four rules

Robbie Seaborne on the four rules of nutrition for young boxers

4. Install Good Food Habits

Installing good food habits helps to create the balanced diet that we have already spoken about. Providing these food nutritional habits at a younger age, will allow the boxer to make greater benefits to training and performance. It will also help the boxer later on in their career, when their nutritional habits become focused around training and performance. Here are some food food habits to try and introduce to help young boxers become fighting fit:

  1. Providing protein based snacks instead of sugary based ones
  2. Eating regularly and consistently
  3. Changing high sugary carb options to slow release options
  4. Encourage eating a rainbow of fresh fruit and veg a day
