The Benefits of Sports Nutrition for Martial Arts

While all athletes are very aware of the importance of exercise in reaching their peak fitness, the jury is still out on the dietary aspect of health and fitness. A quick Google search for the healthiest nutrition regime would produce thousands of contradictory results. Sorting through all of these varying opinions could be not only time consuming, but very confusing for those without a background in health and fitness.

We at Arakan Martial Art realized this problem and put in the work for you, researching the large number of available supplements and nutritional aids available on the market. The health supplement market targets a wide range of fitness and nutritional goals. However, these goals can be consolidated into four main groups: preparation for an intense workout session, losing weight, gaining muscle, and recovering after an intense workout session.

All athletes value optimum nutrition so that they can perform at their peak. Regardless of an individual’s fitness and nutritional goals, health supplements can provide the additional boost needed to see results that cannot be obtained from simply dieting and exercise alone.

For those athletes that are looking to provide their bodies with nutrients in preparation of an intense workout, a dietary supplement is often the preferred method as opposed to eating large amounts of food that weigh the body down. If the athlete’s goal is to lose weight, these supplements often suppress feelings of hunger so that the dieter eats less. For those seeking to bulk up and build muscle mass, health supplements assist by providing the body with large amounts of protein that are crucial for muscle growth. Sports supplements are very valuable in helping athletes recover from high intensity exercise.

We at Arakan Martial Art recommend Australian Sports Nutrition for any athlete looking to perform their martial art at a higher level or simply those that would like to see an improvement in their personal health. For those that are serious about making an effort to live a more active and healthy lifestyle, a combination of Arakan Martial Art and Australian Sports Nutrition health supplements will speed up the results of exercises that could take a significant amount of time to show up otherwise.

The discipline that is required to exercise regularly and eat healthy is taught through the practice of Arakan Martial Art. The balance that is necessary to perform this sport well is symbolic of the life balancing that is necessary to achieve success in your endeavours. As you begin to spend more time and energy on achieving your fitness and athletic goals, you will want to make the most of the energy you expend. This is where Australian Sports Nutrition comes in. Partnered with hard work and commitment, these nutrition supplements will truly highlight and accelerate your health and fitness results. If you’re ready to see the best you, commit to a consistent and rigorous exercise regimen and let Australian Sports Nutrition do the rest!





I started training in Arakan Martial Art initially for fitness and for fun (as I was becoming quite bored with the gym) but this has expanded beyond my wildest dreams. I feel very confident when I am by myself as the self defence training that Arakan provides is easy to learn, very practical and very realistic.

Being in the Moment

Contrary to what many people think, a long term disciplined practice in martial arts can help you become more tolerant, calm and peaceful, rather than aggressive. 
Many people avoid training in a martial art because they’re “not a violent person”,  in fact, it’s a misconception that martial arts equates to violence.  This misconception actually robs people of a martial arts journey as well as the massive array of benefits that form part of that journey.

Time - the key to success

In todays’ society we expect so much so quickly. There is always so much pressure on ourselves and people around us to gain immediate results, no matter what the venture maybe. 

Our concept of time has changed dramatically; I often hear comments such as, “I have been training for so long now, it’s been almost three years,” and “I have given myself three months to see if my new business can make big profits,” and “it’s time to find a new job, I have been in this same job for two years, it’s been too long.”

Malcolm Gladwell, in his book Outliers states that it takes 10,000 hours for someone to master a topic...
