The diet of Usain Bolt

Mireia Cervera 01 September 2017

In the world of sports there are good athletes, great athletes, icons, legends and then Bolt's wound. Find out in this post what the Jamaican eats to break all records.

The torrent of unanimity that has generatedthe Jamaican lightning bolt is unheard of, never seen. He has dominated for more than a decade (yes, more than 10 years!) The 100 and 200 meters with an iron fist. And the feeling is that he did it without forcing the machine, letting himself be carried away in the final 10 meters.

The most successful runner in history was born in 1986 in Trelawny, Jamaica, the island of Bob Marley, which is an almost inexhaustible quarry of sprinters. This athlete measures 1.96 and weighs 86 kilos. At the 2008 Beijing Olympics he won threegold medals and three world records impressing the world and setting the best world numbers in the history of track and field so far . A year later, at the World Athletics Championships in Berlin, he beat his propiates marks in the 100 and 200 meter sprints with a time of 9.58 and 19.9 seconds. At the 2012 London Olympics, he repeated Beijing's feat. In Rio he repeated the trio of golds with the same ease and impudence.

What does the racing warrior eat daily to stay at the highest level of his disciplines for so many years?

The Usain Bolt thing is unheard of. Not only is he the fastest man on the planet, according to the Guinness Book of Records, but he also takes 41 long strides every 100 meters, while other elite athletes would take up to 50. PoThat is why your diet should be a big factor in giving you the fuel you need to hit those numbers.

When he was a child, he followed a precarious diet that caused sclerosis that, in the long run, has benefited him.used to compete. And, since always, one of the basic elements in his food, according to his father has told him on many occasions, was yam, a tuber very similar to potatoes with a great contribution of carbohydrates. Ran to fame in the2008 Beijing Olympics, he won three gold medals and set a trio of world records, all eating a diet of junk food. The Jamaican assured in 2015, an interview published on the official website of the IAAF, thate one of the biggest sacrifices he's made to extend his career has been forgoing fast food in favor of vegetables. "I have started to eat healthy. This is for me the biggest sacrifice, eating vegetables all the time. It's easygiving up almost everything, but eating healthy is really tough. "

When he has to follow a strict diet because the competition is close, Bolt opts for a diet with a high energy content, about 5.000 calories a day, calibrating each of your six meals with 60% protein, 30% carbohydrates and 10% fat.

Sprinting is an explosive and anaerobic sport that requires runners to be lean and strong. Their training does not help them "burn" fat like resistance training, and they should be careful about it.diet to achieve good muscles with the minimum percentage of fat. To promote faster muscle feeding, the proportion of protein in the diet is increased and the intake of carbohydrates and fat is decreased. <br />
That is so, because, with speed training, greater muscle wasting occurs and new muscle cells are created, so it demands a higher proportion of proteins to supply the amino acids that build and regenerate.it was the muscles.

It is important to emphasize that Usain Bolt's diet is designed exclusively for elite athletes, and how such it carries a very rigorous medical control.

Basically their diet is constituted as follows:

His breakfast consists of "Johnny Cakes" (dumplings of flour, water, butter and milk) and boiled potatoes. These two foods provide you with a high energy content to give you the maximum in your workouts. <br />
At lunch , Bolt opts for a good portion of protein, preferably fish, accompanied by a portion of rice or pasta and one of whole wheat bread and plenty of vegetables.

For dinner
Between meals Bolt claims to be a heavy consumer of bananas, mangoes, pineapples and apples.The fastest man in the world drinks a lot of water to be able to recover the fluids lost during his power and speed sessions.

But there is still more, people close to the star of the slopes comment that one of the secrets of this artist lies in the times he establishes to make his meals is to intersperse it with training and rest.

Although, when I competeIt is far away, Bolt confesses that he likes to take a break to a fast food restaurant. He loves energy drinks and occasionally toasts with beer. Although it seems from another planet, it has its weaknesses.
According to his coaches, after two years out of competition he will have a belly, he is betting that he will remain in top form.

We do not know what will happen to his gut, what we do know is that this cyborg's careerathletics will inspire present and future generations of world athletics. A "Jordanian" legacy almost impossible to match. Show must go on!
