#CLIMBERSNUTRITION

This year at Melloblocco we finally talk about sport nutrition: climbing as a mixed sport (combining the strength and endurance of route climbing to strenght and power of bouldering) requires some specific changes in the way of eating? What should I eat before a climbing day? And before a training sesssion? And during or just after that session? Are there any specific „guidelines“ to follow?

We will deal about sport nutrition, macro and micronutrients requirements in association with kind and amount of training, we will make a focus on athletes hydration and we will talk about correct timing of meals. These and many other issues will be touched Friday May 1, presented by Gianluca Bosetti, molecular biologist and nutritionist, specialized in sports nutrition and taking care of professional football players, hockey, cyclists, marathoners, swimmers, volleyball players and of course climbers. His approach notoriously scientific and updated will allow us to find out roughly how to optimize nutrition, so that it becomes support and not an obstacle to training and improving, avoiding blunders.

 #CLIMBERSBODYCOMPOSITION

We assume that we are not all equal, in fact, often what is useful to someone may even be harmful to others. So we introduce the concept of personalized nutrition, what is meant by „body composition“ and why even with the same body weight and height we can be really different.

It is crucial to understand the key principles about hydratation and protein-energy requirements, to learn how to calculate and satisfy them.

#CLIMBERSHANDGRIP

Strength of upper body is measured by HAND GRIP, that is the power of the hand given by many forearm’s muscles (Hand Grip Strength or HGS).

Nutrition & climbing - HGS

HGS is related to the strength of other skeletal muscles therefore it is professionally used for nutritional and functional evaluations, for rehab treatments, as a prognostic factor in chronic and acute diseases and of course in order to evaluate muscular strength in athletes (sport medicine) that finds in free climbing a special value.

As a matter of fact previous studies demonstrated that pro-climbers are beneath 50th and 75th percentile in comparison with general population of same age (for male and female respective); this could predict the climbing level.
