It’s the night before game day. You’re in peak shape after training for months. You’re mentally prepared to dominate (with the help of mind-blowing warmup playlist). There is nothing standing in the way of your team getting that W, except for one more thing: nutrition and pre-game fuel.
At school, our coaches preach being #teamfirst. This means putting the team first in your mind in whatever you do, which includes taking care of yourself. If you chow down on a Snickers bar and a pie of pizza the night before a big game, you are most likely not prepping your body well enough for competition. We’re here to make sure you put #teamfirst in every aspect.
This doesn’t mean you have to eat cardboard or follow a “perfect” plan, but definitely try to get in a nutritious & balanced meal to best set yourself for sweet, sweet victory.
