Nutrition - What are the Daily Energy Requirements

Personal energy requirement=basic energy requirements + extra energy requirements

Basic energy requirements

  • For every Kg of body weight 1.3 calories is required every hour. (An athlete weighing 50Kg would require 1.3*24hrs*50Kg=1560 calories/day)

Extra energy requirements

  • For each hours training you require 8.5 calories for each Kg of body weight. (For a two hour training session our 50Kg athlete would require 8.5 * 2hrs * 50Kg=850 calories)
  • An athlete weighing 50Kg who trains for two hours would require an intake of approx. 2410 calories (1560 + 850).
