Optimizing Nutrition for Female Athletic Performance

By Dr. Susan Kleiner

Female athletes come in all ages, shapes, sizes and sports. They are not small men. When it comes to leading edge concepts in sports nutrition, there is little to no research data on women to follow for creating recommendations and guidelines. Nearly every article, every recommendation, every strategy that you hear about and read about, is based on data collected from men, not women or girls. Only 1/3 of all subjects in exercise science research studies are female, and likely less than that in sports nutrition research. But when it comes to the question of energy needs, the number one most critical issue in sports nutrition, we do have female-centric data. This presentation will focus on the science behind Energy Availability and how to maximize the hormonal benefits of the menstrual cycle to optimize nutrition and training. Practical client assessment and intervention strategies will be discussed through case study presentation.

Harnessing the Potential of the Midnight Feast: How Nocturnal Nutrition and Sleep can Amplify Athletic Gains

By Dr. Ricco Swinbourne

The importance of sleep and the night time window for neural and muscular regeneration is well recognised. However, the optimisation of nocturnal recovery for the elite athlete is a highly discussed and continually developing area of interest to sport scientists, coaches and athletes alike. This keynote address will explore the potential for a variety of nutrients, when consumed nocturnally, to promote anabolism and support beneficial adaptations in lean muscle tissue. Specifically, protein type, timing and dose will be discussed. Furthermore, this presentation will include an update on particular nutrient : sleep interactions within the context of improving sleep quality in athletes. The interesting opportunity that exists for elite athletes to fully harness the night time window for growth, recovery and repair will be explored via an integration of the latest nutrition and sleep literature, with practical every day (night) nutrition protocols and case studies.
