Crossfit is not for me, and I feel like although it can put on muscle, it is truly individualized for a select group of people who wish to compete in the Crossfit games. If I were to devise a workout for me, it would incorporate the Bigger Faster Stronger plan as well as some elements of HIT. I personally love lifting heavy weights and building strength, which is why Bigger Faster Stronger would be my preferred method of fitness. What is good nutrition? Good nutrition is having enough energy in the body to maintain high function, while not intaking too much energy. It is all about energy balance, homeostasis between energy in and energy out. All the food we eat contains nutrient density, which is basically just the quantity of important sustaining nutrients present in each serving. While there are many micronutrients that allow the body to maintain function, the three main macronutrients that allow the body to function are carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. I will discuss each in more detail. Describe the following for each major macronutrient category (protein, carbohydrates, fats): role in energy production role in performance
foods that you would recommend within the macronutrient category and why How does knowledge of macronutrients help you in your future training endeavors?
Fats: Unlike carbohydrates, fats are stored in the human body as adipose tissue. The human body may only store 2000 calories of carbs, but 92000 calories of fat! Fats can be used for energy, although rarely. Fats are significant in balancing hormones in the human body, forming our cell membranes, forming our brain and nervous system, transporting fat soluble molecules, and providing the body with linoleic acid.
