If Usain Bolt Ate Getsharp Bars

If you have ever seen Usain Bolt sprint, there’s a slight chance you might think, “OK, he comes from another planet!” And I don’t blame you. Or maybe that he’s even discovered some secret natural ingredient that he eats lots of which gives him super powers (could be plausible) but mostly it’s down to his way he views his training and HOW he trains. He wasn’t just born super-human, you know!

What makes him the fastest man on the planet?

His exercise routine is vigorous and would make most of us sweat just reading about it:

Bolt’s workout routine includes plyometric training, weightlifting, and flexibility training along with running and balance training. Bolts performs flexibility training before and after workouts to help prevent injuries and ensure he can race for an entire season. In the weight room, he focuses on building stronger muscles and not increasing bulk. As such, he’s not a real heavy lifter. His workouts have helped him with muscular endurance though. Bolt trains 6 days per week with an hour per day focused on weight work in the gym.

All of this is obviously has a vigorous strain on his muscles… and the key to him having strong muscles is (no not some obscure element from the planet he is from, as he is actually a human like the rest of us) is mainly protein… amongst other stuff.

He ensures to maintain a high energy level required by sprinting. He eats six daily meals consisting of 60% protein, 30% carbohydrates, and 10% fat and Bolt enjoys foods such as chicken fillets, pork, fish, and yams. Hmm… But no insects?

*Reader gasps* “Insects?! What do you mean, insects? Why would he eat such a thing?”

Consider the following: 100 grams of crickets contains 12.9 grams of protein! And that is a whole lot more gram for gram that either beef or chicken. Hence why GetSharp bars are made from cricket protein…

Scientists have estimated if Usain Bolt kept to a strict diet of GetSharp bars, he’ actually be able to run so fast he could go backwards in time.

But let’s keep that a secret from Bolt, eh? We need to at least give the other runners a chance…
