Manny Huerta - Fueling Olympic Dreams


 

An Olympian's body is like a high-performance race car and the fuel used for both of these machines can make a huge difference on race day. So, what do you find in an Olympian's refrigerator and pantry? What do these elite athletes eat for breakfast and dinner? How about after a training session?

 

Today we wrap up our very special LivingFuelTV series Fueling Olympic Dreams with Manny Huerta, member of the United States men's Olympic triathlon team. Join us as Manny describes a day in the nutritional life of an Olympian. His knowledge and experience in developing his personal dietary regimen may help you reach your health and fitness goals.

Imagine on your 16th birthday you are presented with an incredible gift—choose any car, regardless of cost, and it's yours, for free! There's just one catch. This will be the only car you'll ever own. It's safe to assume that you'd care for your new vehicle with only the very best preventative maintenance, the top grade oil, high-octane gasoline, even the best windshield wiper fluid! This treasured car is a very good metaphor for your body—both are extraordinary gifts, both require excellent care and attention, and both are the only ones we receive in our lifetime.

Today on LivingFuelTV, we continue our inspiring series Fueling Olympic Dreams with Manny Huerta of the United States men's Olympic triathlon team and the 2011 USA Triathlon Elite Athlete of the Year. In our episode, Manny explains how he realized his body was like a high-performance race car and how he begin to treat it as such. The results helped Manny complete his "best race ever" and achieve his lifelong dream of competing in the Olympics. He'll swim, bike, and run for gold next month in the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games.

 

We all want to live high performance lives and perform at top efficiency. What Manny learned to help him perform his best, may just help you perform your best.

Today on LivingFuelTV, we continue our inspiring series Fueling Olympic Dreams with Manny Huerta of the United States men's Olympic triathlon team. The "tri" in "triathlon" refers to three, as triathletes swim, bike and run, back-to-back-to-back with just seconds to transition between each discipline. In fact, T1 (the lightning-fast changeover from swim to bike) and T2 (the equally fast switch from bike to run) are practically sports themselves! Triathlon is a sport of endurance, skill and speed. Thousands of professional, amateur and recreational athletes compete each weekend in triathlons of various distances at hugely popular events all over the world.

In today's episode, we'll journey from Manny's childhood dream to compete in the Olympic Games, to training for more than ten years at the Olympic level in three sports—all to cut 30 minutes off his finishing time to compete with the world's best. How did he do it?
