In this seminar, Barry will go through everything you need to know about nutrition during the winter “mileage” months. This is a phase of the season where you can use nutrition to significantly improve your endurance and aerobic base. It is also a time of the year where illness can set you back so preventing infection is very important. Managing your weight can also become an issue and knowing how to control this during the “comfort” eating months is crucial.

Barry will cover all this and more including: how to periodize your nutrition, how to improve endurance adaptations, how to boost your immunity and treat illness he will also provide some tricks, tips and strategies to keep you lean during the winter months.
