ALL ABOUT THE KIDS AND COMMUNITY

Youth Athletic Programs, Academic Scholarships and their support of the Westport Community.
The Westport PAL is a non profit organization run by both active and retired police officers

Athletic Training Tip of the Week
Westport P.A.L. is proud to have Performance Physical Therapyproviding sports injury and
athletic training services for this 2016-2017 football season.
ATHLETIC TRAINING TIP
Athletes need to fuel up properly before starting their workout or practice. Carbohydrate is the preferred fuel for exercise, 30 to 60 minutes before exercise eat something that is easily digested and carbohydrate-rich. The recommended amount of carbodydrates per hour for peak performance is 45-60 grams. Between 10-20 grams of protein is needed during workouts also for optimal performance. For exercise that is 90 minutes or longer, a larger amount of food is necessary.
Examples of foods to eat pre-performance would be :
Peanut Butter with a Banana
Whole grain Wheat toast with fruit preserve.
Turkey sandwich on whole grain wheat bread with light sandwich spread.
Bowl of Multi-grain cereal with low-fat milk.
Pretzels or Pita Chips with hummus spread.
