Jan 29, 2015Nutrition Advice? We Wrote the Book
Training & Conditioning is proud to announce the release of our newest publication, “The Nutrition Edge.” In this book, we present a compilation of the very best of our articles on sports nutrition published in the magazine. From pregame meals to losing weight to recovery nutrition, each chapter details information that is relevant and specific to today’s competitive athlete.
Twenty years ago, we began publishing Training & Conditioning, a magazine specifically targeted to athletic trainers and strength and conditioning coaches. Its goal was and continues to be to provide readers with cutting edge advice on working with competitive athletes.
Part of that advice includes in-depth articles on nutrition. Since the mid-1990s, our readers have enjoyed finding new information on nutrition in every issue. And our nutrition-based content has become some of the best articles we publish.
We have been lucky to find a stable of sports dietitians that can author these types of articles. And we thank them for partnering with us on this book. They include:
