Video: JOE talks sports nutrition with Leinster's senior performance nutritionist

JOE caught up with Leinster's senior performance nutritionist to talk about eating right during the pre-season

Leinster's season is now underway, but before the big kick-off we met up with Daniel Davey, Leinster's senior performance nutritionist to chat about preseason nutrition.

Diet will always be a key part of any exercise regime, and particular for athletes at the highest level as they endeavour to get into top shape for the season.

As Daniel tells us, the exercises that the squad are doing, from powerful deadlifts, to grueling squats and plyometric exercises need to be fuelled with clean foods which are nutrient rich and will provide the players with plenty of energy to get them through their tough sessions in the run up to the season's start.

He gives us a few examples of healthy foods that we can add to our daily routines, what the players would get through in a day, and the importance of sports nutrition to their diets.
