Text translation English - Icelandic. Athlete's nutrition

To be a great athlete you have to be smart about your nutrition, becoming an elite athlete requires good genes, good training, good conditioning and a sensible diet, optimial nutrition is ESSENTIAL for peak performance. Nutritional misinformation can do as much harm to the ambitious athlete as good nutrition can help.

Carbohydrates: Athletes benefit the most from the amount of carbohydrates stored in the body. In the early stages of exercise, carbohydrates provide 40-50 percent of the energy requirement.

Carbohydrates yield more energy per unit of oxygen consumed than fats. Because oxygen often is the limiting factor in long duration events, it is beneficial for the athlete to use the energy source requiring the least amount of oxygen per kilacalorie produced. As work intensity increases, carbohydrate utilization increases.

Water: Water is an important nutrient for the athlete. Athletes should start any event hydrated and replace as much lost fluid as possible by drinking chilled liquids at frequent intervals during the event. Chilled fluids are absorbed faster and help lower body temperature.

Fats: Fat also provides body fuel. For moderate exercise, about half of the total energy expenditure is derived from free fatty acid metabolism. If the event lasts more then one hour, the body may use mostly fats for energy . Consumption of fat should not fall below 15 percent of total energy intake

Til þess að vera frábær íþróttamaður þarftu að hugsa vel um næringu, það sem þarf til að vera framúrskarandi íþróttamaður eru góð gen, góð þjálfun, gott þol og skynsamlegt matarræði, ákjósanleg næring er NAUÐSYNLEG fyrir hámarksframmistöðu. Lítil næringarþekking getur skaðað metnaðarfulla íþróttamanninn jafnmikið og góð næring getur hjálpað.

Kolvetni: Íþróttamenn græða mest á því magni kolvetna geymt í líkamanum. Í byrjunarstigum þjálfunar þá veita kolvetni 40-50 prósent af orkunni sem íþróttamaðurinn þarf.

Kolvetni gefur meiri orku á hverja einingu af súrefni neitt heldur en fita. Súrefni er oft takmarkandi þáttur í viðburðum sem taka langan tíma, þess vegna græðir íþróttamaðurinn mest á því að nota orkuþáttinn sem þarfnast minnst af súrefni á hverjar 1000 kaloríur framleiddar. Eftir því sem álag eykst, þá hækkar notkun kolvetna í líkamanum.

Vatn:Vatn er mikilvægt næringarefni fyrir íþróttamanninn. Íþróttamenn ættu að byrja hvern íþróttaviðburð vel vökvaðir og fylla á sem mestan vökva sem hefur verið tapað með því að drekka kældan vökva í pásum á meðan viðburðinum stendur. Kældir vökvar eru dregnir inní líkamann hraðar og hjálpa lækka líkamshita.

Fitur: Fitur veita líka eldsneyti fyrir líkamann. Fyrir meðalþjálfun er um helmingurinn af orku útgjöldunum tekin frá óbundnum fitusýrum. Ef viðburðurinn endist lengur en klukkutíma, getur verið að líkaminn noti aðallega fitur fyrir orku. Inntaka fitu ætti ekki að fara undir 15 prósent af allri orku inntöku.

Interview

Interview with Bjarmi Skarp, a general manager for FSu Basketball

I interviewed Bjarmi Skarp, a general manager for the Fsu Basketball team, i decided to interview him because of his general manager position for a basketball team and also because he is a former basketball player

1. Bjarmi, what is the most important thing to you when you search for new players for the Club?

Bjarmi said this: For our organization it is crucial to find players with a good work ethic, that have big dreams and think more then one year ahead.

2. Now the club is in the Dominos league, but at the same time you‘re losing a player from the starting lineup to america for school, how do you intend to make up for the loss of this player?

Bjarmi: First and foremost we will try to find a player amongst our own to fill this void, but if that doesnt work out then we will try to find a player with the benefits that we are looking for.

3. There is a rumour that the club is trying to bring back a former player of the team in Chris Caird, What would he do for the team as a player?

Bjarmi: Well that agreement hasn‘t reached very far, but that is a player who know the club and its foundation. He would strengthen the team as a whole aswell as having the chance to help our players grow and get better, as player and as people.
