Yorkshire County Cricket Club are proud to be partnered with Nutrition X who are the club’s Official Sports Nutrition Supplier. To celebrate the partnership Nutrition X have produced the Yorkshire One-Day Bundle. The bundle includes Hydra 10, Maximum Recovery Matrix & Xpolde Shots all of which are taken by Yorkshire County Cricket Club players.
Friends Life t20 is here! These exciting matches are short in duration and high in intensity. At Yorkshire we track player workloads and are currently using Catapult Sports GPS tracking units to help quantify the efforts of your favourite players during these matches. Most of our fast bowlers and some of our boundary fielders are covering up to as much at 7km at an intense pace throughout each t20 fielding innings. It is therefore essential that we manage the hydration and recovery nutritional strategies before, during and after each match.
Below is how and why Yorkshire CCC use these specific Products: ‘Only a 2% decrease in hydration can lead to performance decrements. Therefore an important addition to each player’s locker is Hydra 10. Hydra 10 contains important electrolytes normally lost in sweat, as well as a small amount of carbohydrate for energy, ensuring the players are hydrated even in these intense situations.
Intermittent in nature, T20 can also cause post match stiffness and muscle energy depletion that needs immediate consideration to ensure adequate recovery post match. As soon as each match is over, our first point of call is MRM (Maximum Recovery Matrix). MRM is designed to accelerate recovery from intense exercise sessions and works by combining the key recovery nutrients into their correct ratios. A complex carbohydrate blend increases glycogen replenishment while a protein blend replenishes those amino acid profiles.
A third product in each kit back is Xplode! This fast acting supplement provides caffeine and high energy calories to boost a fatigued bowler or entering batsmen immediately prior to competition. With such an intensity of competition and with the condensed county cricket schedules, some of your favourite players may feel the need for an energy surge just before taking the field.
Along with a healthy and balanced diet, plenty of water and adequate sleep, the training levels and match intensities required of all the Yorkshire players is well supported by Nutrition X products. As the season pushes through its mid-season t20 block and back into Championship format in a few weeks, correct nutritional strategies are vital to maximise our players readiness for competition.
Thank you to Nutrition X for their continued support.
