Next time you're reading comments at the end of a digital news article, notice how much anger features. Though as little as 50 years ago, letting our negative emotions rip was not considered good form, now it's regarded as an absolute right. Reality shows these days even manipulate contestants to maximise their anger outbursts, because this “entertainment” boosts ratings. But is anger good for our health? Studies show that the angry brain can cause a cascade of unhealthy physical impacts. Your muscles tense, your stomach releases more acids, causing discomfort, digestion stops and blood circulation slows. Meanwhile, your heart rate and blood pressure increase, your body pumps out more cholesterol along with chemicals to clot blood, and both can contribute to blocked arteries and increased stroke risk.

Many people often wake up feeling more tired than when they went to bed. This tiredness can continue throughout the day. For athletes with intense training workloads, this tiredness can turn into fatigue. 

Fatigue is defined as a lack of energy and motivation. It is more than tiredness or drowsiness. It is exhaustion resulting from mental or physical exertion or illness; a temporary loss of power.

Do you experience these symptoms associated with athletic fatigue?

  • Elevated resting heart rate
  • Muscle soreness and pain
  • Increased effort during training
  • Loss of appetite
  • Drop in performance
  • Loss of appetite
  • Colds & flu
  • Loss of enjoyment in training

Fatigue experienced by athletes can be related to sleep, stress or underlying medical reasons. However, more commonly than not, athletic fatigue is associated with dietary and nutritional factors including:

  • Fuel and energy depletion
  • Low blood sugar levels
  • Dehydration

Nutrition is often overlooked as a contributing factor to fatigue. In many cases, a simple change in eating habits can increase energy levels and improve training sessions.

Here are five ways to fight athletic fatigue and prevent drops in energy levels throughout the day, ensuring optimal athletic performance:

1.Eat for Energy & Health

A nutritious, energy boosting diet is key to fighting fatigue. It should provide the right balance of low GI carbohydrate, protein, fat and sufficient vitamins and minerals to maximise exercise performance at training and competition. 

One of the biggest problems that physically active athletes experience on a daily basis is maintaining high enough energy levels to be able to excel at work, exercise and socialising. If you find that, after work, your thoughts tend to run more towards passing out on the couch for the night rather than hitting the gym for a high-intensity workout, you may not be eating enough through the day. 

Ensure you consume adequate wholegrains, lean meats and dairy, fruit and vegetables. Having energy rich foods and drinks available during and after exercise is important to keep you energised through the day. Try fruit smoothies, fruit and yoghurt and chicken salad sandwiches.

2.Prevent the Caffeine Rut

Far too often, caffeine is used to suppress fatigue and supplement proper energy intake from food. However this can cause a cycle of chronic tiredness, interfering with sleep patterns and causing a dependence on caffeine for daily training sessions. 

Are you stuck in a caffeine rut? Try going caffeine free for a week. Or at least reduce your caffeine intake and ensure you have a proper meal with your morning cup of coffee. Plan your breakfast and always start with a healthy option such as fresh fruit and low-fat yoghurt, rolled oats and home-made muesli.
