How to achieve High Performance during Training.
Important mineral to maximise your exercise performance.
Especially if you are doing high-intensity interval training, then to maximise performance, you need to have a high oxidative capacity which means your muscle cells need to consume more Oxygen.
Now, your capacity to train depends on the availability of Oxygen plus other 2 factors:
>number of powerhouse cells (mitochondria) you have inside your muscle cells (as they consume the oxygen)
>And how efficient these cells are working.
If you want to avoid muscle fatigue in order to train harder and achieve high performance, there are two ways you can increase your capacity:
1. You must increase the numbers of those powerhouse cells (create new ones).
2. increasing the efficiency of the existing powerhouse cells.
Q1. How can we make more of new powerhouse cells?
- Research found just one session of high interval training increases the total number of powerhouse cells. But to make new powerhouse cells (mitochondria), your existing powerhouse cells need to copy the gene. This copying process requires an important element: Magnesium.
- Inadequate or low Magnesium level your body is having a hard time producing new powerhouse cells during exercise, you get tired easily, therefore, low performance.
Q2. How to make my existing powerhouse cells efficient?
When you exercise, muscle stress damages your powerhouse cells. Therefore, the efficiency decreases. But your powerhouse cells can repair this damage! How awesome they are restoring by themselves! Yep, but they are just waiting for you to feed them with the magnificent….. Magnesium! Therefore, Magnesium is crucial to repair the cell damage.
Make sure your magnesium level is on point. Tell your GP. Get it tested. Eat almonds, green vegetables, take supplements. Make new powerhouse cells. Make them highly efficient. Get on a new level with your body. Stay Physically & Mentally healthy.
