Scientific Nutrition and Strength Training Principles that Every Athlete Must Know

5. Supplements

Supplements are the final point to consider. Many athletes will prioritise this aspect of nutrition over others, however using supplements incorrectly will not help you to achieve your goals. For example, if an individual consumes 50g of protein powder daily, yet does still not achieve the overall caloric intake that will help them to achieve their goals, then their efforts are wasted and the results will not be achieved.

It is important to understand supplements as they really are, products to supplement a nutrition plan, and something to help achieve the desired outcomes from the more important steps above.
