Meal Plans | Training Table | The Landing | Competition Fueling | Education | Body Composition | Staff

Nutrition is a vital piece of the puzzle for optimum sports performance.  Proper fueling before and during competition can give you the competitive advantage you need to succeed.  Learning how to fuel your body correctly before or after workouts and throughout the day will enhance your body's ability to recover from training and maximize your physical development.  For these reasons, the University of Nebraska places a huge importance on Sports Nutrition.  No program is as dedicated to helping athletes reach their fullest potential in this area.  Nebraska was one of the first Universities to employ a full-time sports nutritionist to work directly with athletes.  Currently, it is one of only three Universities that have two full-time sports nutritionist available to help athletes meet their nutritional needs.  Josh Hingst and Lindsey Remmers both work as Sports Nutritionists for the athletic department.  Together, they bring a tremendous amount of experience to the table.  For more information on each, click on the links below to review their bios.

 

Below, you will find more information and videos that will give you a better understanding of all the University Nebraska has available for you and sports nutrition.  But first, check out this first video of some personal testimonies from some of our currently student athletes.

    Nebraska was one of the first Universities to provide a Training Table for the athletes.  The training table first opened in 1985 and currently offers lunch and dinner meals for student-athletes.  The training table prides itself in providing the highest quality foods for athletes to enhance performance.  All the foods served in the training table are labeled with a specialized food labeling system that helps athletes understand what foods they need to consume and the appropriate quantities to meet their individual nutritional needs.  Dale Kruse, Training Table manager, oversees the foodservice operation and has over 10 years of experience running Nebraska's unique, one of a kind, training table.  The training table also features an executive chef, Michael Steele, who oversees all food production and recipe development.  Together, both sports nutritionists, the manager, and executive chef collaborate in creating the menus and choosing high quality, performance based foods for the athletes.

    The Landing

    The Landing, established in 2005, serves as the primary fueling point for all athletes before, during, and after training.  The landing provides a number of different recovery shakes, energy bars, fruits, and trail mix for student athletes.  As part of their individualized meal plans, athletes are prescribed a unique pre and post workout fueling plan utilizing the products offered at the landing.  Multi-vitamins are also provided at the landing to ensure athletes are meeting their nutrient needs.  Student-Nutrition volunteers assist in managing the landing, and preparing specialized nutritional shakes and recovery drinks for student-athletes. 


    Competition Fueling

    Both Josh and Lindsey coordinate competition fueling for each sport.  A number of different nutritional products are provided for athletes at before and during competition.  Athletes work closely with both Sports Nutritionists to develop an individualized fueling plan for competition that ensures they are drinking adequate amounts of fluids, consuming adequate electrolytes, and also getting the right amount of protein and carbohydrates proven to enhance performance while limit muscle damage during competition.

    Education

    A number of specialized education tools are also provided at Nebraska to ensure that you understand what, why, and how to implement proper fueling in your life.  Cooking Classes and Grocery Store tours assist athletes in knowing what foods to buy and how to prepare them.  Nutrition tips, newsletters, and a number of handouts on various nutrition related topics are also available for student-athletes.  Both nutritionists also provide tailored team talks and workshops for teams.

    Body Composition

    Another tool the sports nutrition programs offers is body composition testing.  Both nutritionists perform routine individual and team testing for athletes.  Results are combined with individualized meal plans to help athletes achieve both their physical and training goals.  Nebraska is one of the few Sports Nutrition programs that offer both the Bod Pod and skinfold calipers as means for body composition testing.
