Unbeatable Usain Bolt before the Olympics in Beijing held a rather monotonous diet: for 100 days he ate 100 chicken nuggets per day (20 pieces per pack – 940 calories).
At the beginning Usain ate 20 nuggets for lunch and dinner. Later on, he took 2 packs for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All that he ate with fried potatoes, and in the evening there was also an apple pie.
During the day, the Jamaican athlete eats to stay active while exercising, but before going to bed at night, he “sweeps away” all the food on his way.
The coach advised Usain to lean on vegetables … Sometimes he eats broccoli, but, frankly speaking, he’s not a fan of such food. No wonder – broccoli’s taste is far behind the nuggets.
When the athlete doesn’t have to get ready for the Olympics, he eats quite normally: for breakfast he takes sandwich with egg; for lunch – pasta and corned beef; for dinner – Jamaican pies with beef and fried chicken. Fruits are Usain usual snack.
The last days before this summer’s competition, Bolt leaned on Asian food and rice. Now he has such a diet.
At the beginning of training Usain Bolt makes light acceleration exercises rather than running in circles. He usually does from 10 to 15 accelerations to warm up. Then he does some dynamic exercises, stretching, and then ends with light acceleration.
Then sprint is the basis of his training.
After each workout, Usain Bolt does strength exercises:
Bolt did not lift weights until he was 18 years old, as a precaution against injury. He always focuses on strength endurance, which allows him to run longer and faster.
In an interview Usain Bolt said his diet consists of six dishes. It consists of 60% of proteins, 30% of carbohydrates and 10% of fats.
For breakfast Usain Bolt likes Jamaican dumplings (flour, water, butter and milk) and yams. This dish is rich in carbohydrates, fiber and vitamins A and C. For lunch, Bolt eats tuna or grouper or other additional proteins with whole grain bread and brown rice. For dinner, he sticks to the menu consisting of chicken, pork or beef mixed with rice.
