10 Superfoods to Boost Crossfit Performance

Nutrition is the base of all performance. Make sure yours is on point by bringing these 10 Superfoods into your diet & improve all round wellbeing & Crossfit performances.

ARE YOU GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR DIET?

At some point, it simply won’t matter how talented you are, how much time and effort you put into sweating at the gym, programming your workouts and analyzing the weaknesses in your training if you don’t have the nutritional side covered as well.

FOOD IS THE FUNDAMENTAL FUEL FOR ANY PERFORMANCE

It gives your body the necessary tools to grow stronger, replenish itself and go the extra mile in all of your daily tasks.

So once you’ve got the basics of your Crossfit nutrition and clean eating covered, let’s talk about the benefits you can reap from adding so-called superfoods, meaning foods with an unusually high amount of important nutrients. Nutrients you, as an athlete, need in abundance.

‘Fancy name and hype aside, superfoods don’t have to be exotic or expensive – you’ll be surprised how many of these multi-talents you’re already eating.’

So here’s a list of the Superfoods that have the most benefits for Crossfitters:
