When it comes to nutrition and training, many people are misunderstood when it comes to cricket, believing it’s slow-paced and lacks any real physicality compared to other sports such as rugby and football. We know they’re wrong. Cricketers need to possess a bit of everything – strength, skill, speed and most importantly, agility. And therefore a vital part of this sport is taking good care of what goes into your body, to make sure it’s functioning as it should to perform at the highest level.
All sportsmen need an extra boost. Something to give them that burst of energy when working hard in the gym, in training, or during a game – and cricket is certainly no different. Creatine is ideal for this purpose, as it’s one of the widely most research supplements, and is known to be highly effective.
Our Creapure® is the purest form of Creatine Monohydrate, and has been proven to increase physical performance in successive bursts of short-term, high-intensity exercise – meaning it’s the perfect training or match tool for giving your all.
With cricket matching last several hours, it’s important that your body has enough carbs to keep the tank running, as well as being stocked with nutrients and remaining hydrated throughout. Always make sure you’re prepared before a game, but sometimes you need a quick hit to keep you at the top of your game.
As we all know, recovery is one of the most important parts of sports nutrition. And with cricket matches running for hours, it’s even more important here to rebuild your store of carbs for those tiresome training sessions or long-running matches.
Try our Dextrose – it’s an essential supplement that offers sufficient levels of all nutrients and sustained slow-released low glycaemic carbohydrates to help provide energy for long and intense sessions – ideal for cricketers the world over.
