Short-term tricks that lead to weight gain may cause long-term gymnastics problems, including anorexia and bulimia.
Weight control techniques must begin and be practiced under the direct supervision of a doctor. Nobody, and by that I mean nobody, can simply beat any athlete (or individual) and make a careful assessment regarding weight loss issues and nutritional needs.
Basically "weight" is irrelevant. Muscles tend to gain weight more than fat, so, in reality, a "right" gymnast can now weigh more than he did when he had more body fat. The gymnast could be in better shape though the size says she currently weighs more.
The ratio of lean muscle tissue to fat is more important, especially for an athlete where the ability to gain weight is important in performing some skills. In addition, the long-term effects of repetitive workouts may also increase your chance of injury faster in an athlete who may weigh more than a few pounds.
In my opinion, no coach should even prescribe or even suggest that a gymnast change her diet without conducting a medical evaluation to find the fat-to-muscle ratio of this lean muscle.
To find the ratio of fat to lean muscle tissue, weight measurement or underwater measurements with calipers in the skin at specific anatomical sites can help determine the primary result.
Subsequent tests, along with tracking food intake and exercise intensity, may be evaluated by a medical specialist to determine the correct course of action from a nutritional point of view for a particular athlete. If the results indicate a dietary change, this change should only occur with the advice and guidance of a qualified dietitian.
Again, both methods must be performed by a medically qualified person to conduct an evaluation of the gymnast's physical condition.
Throughout my years in training, I saw and heard many different weight loss myths proposed by well-intentioned coaches that ultimately had no effect on the physiology of the athlete, but I wonder, how much does it cost the child to appreciate himself?
I remember a night before the state championship meeting. Everyone was getting ready to sleep in their hotel rooms, and gymnasts were looking forward to a snack of milk before they extinguished. After I forgot to eat spoons with a snack, I was recommended to take some utensils and take them to the girl's rooms.
Breaking safety protocols and basic common sense, one of the younger gymnasts opened the door of the hotel room in his first ways before the other girls in the room could hide bags of candy of all kinds, chips, licorice, and cookies – everything was the opposite of eating Healthy.
I realized that I could wash my car for at least next month by not transferring them to "Al-Ras" coaches, I warned them that they are doing a great job in the meeting the next day or there may be negative consequences.
They did a lot in the meeting.
As a coach, she realized that every gymnast, usually her mother, ultimately had control over an athlete's diet.
My mom has a lot of control over the foods she buys and the meals she makes for the family. (By the way, this is not sexual. My mother is still mainly responsible for family finances and decides what dinner is.)
Also, I have never seen any child, from an infant to an adult, who ever eats anything he does not want to eat. Either spit her as a baby or push my mom crazy until she finally threw Brussels sprouts in the trash.
Ultimately, at home, school, and social functions, the athlete chooses what to eat.
A person's weight is a very personal issue. Insensitive comments about weight can have lasting emotional effects.
The best diet for competitive gymnasts is to provide them with good dining options at home, school and on the road; a good diet education Knowing what nutrition can have an impact on achieving its competitive goals, a support system for parents, trained staff, and the right medical staff. The effects of any weight loss program for child and adolescent athletes should be closely monitored.
Warning: Playing games with weight loss and diet can have negative effects on your child's metabolism and his ability to maintain a healthy weight throughout the rest of his life. Always check with qualified medical professionals before embarking on any weight loss program.
