Every week, our friends at St. Vincent Sports Performance (@DefiningSports) will provide three new tips that could help you achieve your athletic potential!

Coconut water is a great, occasional substitute for your water intake. It is low in carbohydrates and rich in potassium. It is also effective in rehydrating after light exercise, but be aware it contains little sodium the key electrolyte lost in sweat.

For every 10 grams of carbohydrates listed on a food label, look for at least one gram of fiber. This is the ratio in a genuine, unprocessed whole grain. These foods have less sugar, sodium, and trans fats.

Milk provides a good balance of protein and carbohydrates and electrolytes, making it one of the best foods for recovery.


Come back every Monday to get your weekly tips!
