Personal Nutrition

I really try to keep my diet the same all year round, it just makes it easier when dieting and I don't have to lose so much weight. Also I'm a firm believer that if your diet is roughly the same off season as it is when you are dieting, your body won't react badly when you come to a competition.

Also I really believe that you don't actually need that many calories in your diet to bulk up. I'm currently about 18 stone and I only have about 4,200 calories a day. I find sticking to a 40:40:20 diet (Protein: Carbohydrates: Fat) and getting about 400 grams of protein per day is enough to grow.

Personal Nutrition

As a professional athlete, I need to know the products I use are among the best out there. That's why I use Myprotein. In 400m hurdles, medals are separated by hundredths of a second so I need to ensure I am doing all I can off the track as well as on it. I have managed to add 7.5% on all my lifts during my training period this year as well as feeling consistently strong during my running sessions. As my training programme hasn't changed dramatically from previous seasons I believe my results are testament to my improved dietary supplementation routine fuelled by Myprotein.

Products Used

Creatine Monohydrate, MP MAX® Elite True Whey, Omega 3, Impact Whey Isolate, MP MAX® Oats & Whey, Alpha Men, Mega Green Tea Extract, L Carnosine, Beta Alanine and L Histidine.

Personal Nutrition

Nutrition has been a bit of a revelation to me and I have massive sweet tooth! But 5 weeks prior to the 2011 World Championships I stopped eating chocolate, ice cream and candy.... and set a new World Record! I now understand the importance of nutrition and with the advice and support of Myprotein I am hoping for a successful 2012.

Products Used

Recovery XS, One Isotonic, MP MAX® High Pro, MP MAX® Oats & Whey, Caffeine Pro, MP MAX® Elle Aqua Slim and MP MAX® MyBar Deluxe.

Personal Nutrition

With the sort of training gymnasts do, it's so important to get the calories and nutrients you need to recover, but not put on unwanted fat too.
