Everyone loves a banana, but should they?
What’s the upside ?
The average banana contains 100 calories and is a good sources of potassium and vitamin B6 in addition to antioxidants. They have a similar effect to a 6% CHO sports drink and will act to refuel. More ideal for post match, especially getting ready for a second effort that day!
Avoid bananas that are too green around training and competition. Look for a slightly speckled banana, around 21 days old and go for it!
