Nutrition Secrets for the Junior Tennis Player

The secret to sports nutrition is really no secret at all. With any discipline - such as playing a musical instrument - or any sport - not just tennis - it is important to understand and practice the basics.

These basics must become second-nature for them to compete effectively.
This same principle is true in the area of sports nutrition. The athlete does not need every new, exotic nutrition craze that comes along. Just as the athlete practices the basics of his sport repeatedly to excel, he must also practice the basics of sports nutrition. These basics of nutrition will keep an athlete healthy, strong and competitive for years to come.
