Sessions will be held at the Augustana Exercise Physiology Lab in the Edgeworth Centre.

Nutrition for Weight Training

Discover macronutrients – carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and water – and why they are important. These are large components of our daily meal plan, and this session will consider Canada’s Food Guide in light of personal nutrition. Find out how the proportions of each macronutrient should change depending on a person’s activity level. Dr. Robert Kell will address the timing of macronutrient intake and the usefulness of protein supplementation for those who are physically active or competing in sport.
