NFL Cutting Edge Nutrition

July 16, 2017

  

Last week I had the pleasure of hosting the Second Annual Cutting Edge Nutrition Event at Carney Training Facilities in Carlsbad, CA. John Carney is a former NFL kicker and has been named "50 Greatest San Diego Chargers." He now uses his wealth of experience and talent to train athletes at his training facility in Carlsbad, CA. Here he also hosts the NFL Launchpad program exclusively for specialists to sharpen their skills before heading off to their respective NFL training camps. 

 

John invited me back for a second time to hold the Cutting Edge Nutrition event to also sharpen these athlete's nutrition skills and knowledge before they head into the 2017 NFL season.

 

Topics discussed:

 

1. Background on Inflammation 

- purpose

- application for NFL kickers

- intro to prevention 

- hydration implications

 

2. Omega's (3 vs. 6) 

 

3. CoQ10

 

4. Antioxidants

 

5. Mushrooms

 

6. Watermelon

 

7. Curcumin

 

8. Collagen

 

9. Gut Brain Connection

 

10. Supplementation

 

Bonus Question: "What's your favorite pre-game meal strategy that makes you feel like a million bucks?"
