Critically evaluate current fuelling and refuelling strategies for sustained performance and repeated bouts of physical work
Candidates are expected to compare and discuss the dietary needs of 2 athletes and provide a rationale for any differences
Candidates should present a physiological profile of the client’s sport and the needs within that sport regarding fuelling and re-fuelling
during the training and competition phase. Within this candidates must:
• Explain the storage and breakdown of fats and carbohydrates and the role that both play in the metabolism of energy during competition at
high and low intensities.
• Explain fuelling and re-fuelling strategies and how fats and carbohydrates influence fatigue during training and competition.
• Compare and critically evaluate at least two contemporary strategies used by athletes for fuelling and refuelling, before, during and
