A new study published in Physiological Reports claims that gentle exercise routines can work just as well as rigorous exercise routines. The study found that demanding exercise regimes provided no extra health benefits, nor did they burn more fat for people trying to lose weight.
Through the analysis of a live case study, this webinar will provide an understanding of how to work with an adrenally fatigued, nutrient-depleted professional athlete from the principles of functional health and sports nutrition.
The basis of a sports drink or gel is sugar, water and salt. There are now various forms of sugars used, but it doesn’t get too much more complex than that. However, manufacturers add flavours, colours and sweeteners to individualise their taste. Additives need to be detoxified out of the body these come at an energetic cost to the athlete.
This webinar will analyse Overtraining Syndrome (OTS) from an exercise physiology perspective. It will also look at the importance that training load, sleep quality and stress management has on an athlete’s performance and development.

Sugar-free and ‘diet’ drinks are often seen as the healthier option, however, researchers from the Imperial College London argue that they are no more helpful for maintaining a healthy weight that their full-sugar counterparts. The research was conducted by academics from Imperial College London, University of Sao Paulo and Federal University of Pelotas, Brazil. They provided a commentary on current research and policy into sweetened drinks. They found that not only were they sugar-free drinks no better from weight loss, but that they may also be detrimental to the environment.
This webinar provides an introduction to how physiological knowledge of an athlete’s body can be used to improve functional health. Which is an essential factor in reaching peak levels of performance. This webinar will benefit academics, students, physiologists, sports scientists, health professionals and nutritionists.
