THIS WEEK’S INTERVIEW

Nutrition and supplements are something we don’t hear about a lot in gymnastics, unless we are looking at Jonathan Horton’s Instagram or Jake Dalton’s Snapchat. We wanted to know what the latest science was and what progress was being made at USA Gymnastics in terms of eduction and outreach for the national team. This week we learn about the new partnership between Thorne Research and the United States Olympic Committee. Dr. Alan Miller N.D., Executive Director of Medical Education at Thorne Research discusses all things gymnastics and nutritional science:

  • The latest science: what coaches, athletes, parents and national team coordinators should know.
  • How gymnasts can take advantage of this new partnership. 
  • The WADA hack and anti-doping quality controls for supplements. 
  • WellnessFX – it’s exactly what McKayla Maroney said the national team program needed! Diagnostic testing, nutritional science, and medicine help gymnasts peak when it counts. 
  • Gym MythBusters:
    • Muscle soreness can be stopped. 
    • Chocolate milk is a quality recovery drink. 
    • Athletes get enough nutrition from diet alone.
