Hard training sessions can leave your nutrient stores depleted, so here is our list of five top nutrients to keep you performing at your best

The human body requires consumption of 50 essential nutrients to ensure optimum health. Every time you eat is an opportunity to nourish your body. If you’re completing quality training sessions with a focus on a particular event or challenge, then you are an athlete and your body has specific nutritional needs to achieve the best from your training. Certain nutrients are vital for your muscles, metabolism and immune system to work efficiently, but moderate to vigorous exercise increases the loss of these nutrients. Committing to an active lifestyle could leave your nutrient stores depleted and result in symptoms of deficiency, which in turn will impact on your progression and performance.

About Outdoor Swimmer

In our fifth anniversary issue we take a look back at the first five years of H2Open magazine as well as looking to the future and asking ,where will swimming take you in 2016? Whatever your level of swimming, there is a challenge out there for you! If that challenge is a winter swimming competition, we have plenty of top tips and expert advice on swimming in icy water. But if the cold doesn’t really do it for you, we have destination reports from sunny Bermuda and the German lakes. In this issue we also profile four young BLDSA swimmers as well as catching up with open water swimming champions Keri-anne Payne and Cassie Patten. Plus all the usual training, technique and nutrition advice and gear reviews. Happy swimming!
