Earlier this week, we had 7 incredible Hockey Nutrition Tips from Brian St. Pierre. If you missed them, check them out below:
With the off-season upon most of the hockey world, I’m getting a lot of questions from players about how to add muscle mass. A few others want to shed some fat this off-season. I’m glad I’m getting the questions. The off-season is really the time where hockey players can make HUGE changes to their bodies and nutrition is a big part of that.
With that in mind, I want to introduce the best sports nutrition resource out there. Now, I’ll preface this by saying that Brian and I have plans to write a Hockey Nutrition Manual sometime in the near future. Unfortunately, the project keeps getting pushed back because Brian has “more important things” to do like “getting married” and “taking care of his new puppy” (which did a depth jump off a couch and broke it’s leg in the first week they owned it…the puppy was quick to learn Brian’s high intensity training mentality, picture below).
We WILL finish the Hockey Nutrition Manual before 2010 ends. In the meantime, there is an absolutely amazing nutrition resource that I think every coach, parent, player, and water bottle should own: Dr. John Berardi’s Precision Nutrition!
I’m still blown away that there are people out there that don’t own this. It’s the single best nutrition resource ever. It amazes me that people hesitate to spend money on this, but they’ll gladly spend hundreds of dollars on supplements. Precision Nutrition isn’t a weight loss guide. It’s not a muscle gaining guide. It’s a SYSTEM that teaches you how to manipulate your diet to achieve ALL of your health, performance, and body composition goals. If you need to gain muscle mass this year, Precision Nutrition will help. If in a couple years you need to shed some fat, Precision Nutrition will help.
The PN System includes: The Success Guide, The Diet Guide, The Quick Start Guide, The Super Shake Guide, 5-Minute Meals, The Individualization Guide, The Measurement Guide, The Plant-Based Diet Guide, The Maintenance Guide, and The Support Guide. It also comes with Gourmet Nutrition, my favorite cookbook!
Check out Dr. Berardi’s Precision Nutrition “Executive Summary”:
If you have questions about this system, please do not hesitate to contact me. This is the exact nutrition system that many of the top strength and conditioning professionals in North America use, and I know hockey players up through the pro levels that use it as well.
Make the smartest investment of your life and check out Precision Nutrition now!
