A sprinters’ diet is actually not that complicated.
If you fill your body up with the proper fuel you will perform at the best of your ability. But if you fill your body up with garbage then your performance will be woeful.
What type of fuel do you put into your system before you sprint?
Do you pump up with that 93 Octane, top of the line fuel that ensures a great performance?
Or do you pump up with that poisonous leaded gas at that banned filling station, hidden down on the side of the road?
Many people equate throwing up during a workout due to the difficulty of the workout.
That has some merit if you are completely out of shape or doing something brand new, but let me tell you, I have never thrown up from a workout.
I have completed the hardest workout in the history of the iron game and still have not ever thrown up.
Do you know why?
I’m no superhero from the country of Wakanda, but I’m always prepared when it comes to proper nutrition. There are no exceptions on this.
Your nutrition plays a major part in whether you hack it up or not.
If you eat the wrong foods, or you eat way too close to a sprint workout, there is a supremely high chance that your meal is going to end up in the dirt. I have seen folks throw up after a warm-up.
One of the worst habits for trainees to have is poor pre-workout nutrition. It is the kiss of death for performance.
If you are showing up to the track with lousy nutrition in your belly, I can promise you that you will be leaving a lot of meat on the bone when it comes to your performance.

No one wants you to ruin the track with your yak.
I’ll holla at you next time.
