Here’s what you should have handy during a padel match for optimum nutrition:
- Banana or dates
- Isotonic drink
- Fruit bars
That’s pretty simple, you can watch World Padel Tour and see that these are the main drinks and foods that the top athletes use during their matches.
Banana is probably the most popular fruit you’ll see among the players. It is a fruit with a high glycemic index which therefore gives you a quick boost of energy. It’s main sugars (fructose and glucose) help with your body’s absorption of carbs. Bananas are also rich in magnesium which help reduce the sensation of fatigue. The potassium found in bananas helps avoid cramps and muscle spasms.
