According the basic principle of “Balanced Nutrition” that contain enough carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals, fiber and water, then volleyball athletes nutritional needs are as follows:

1. Energy needs

In General a player volleyball requires energy of about 4500 Kcal or 1.5 times the normal adult energy needs with relatively the same posture, because players volleyball categorized with someone who do heavy physical activity.

2. The mechanism Providing and use of Carbohydrate during exercise

The production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) during an intensive muscle labor depending on the availability of muscle glycogen and blood glucose. Light physical activities may be produced with a low carbohydrate source. However, it is not possible to meet the needs of ATP and to maintain the required muscle contractile pressure for higher physical appearance if this energy source is exhausted.

Muscle tissue is the main store of glycogen (400 g; 6.7 MJ), liver (1.2 g; 70 MJ) and blood glucose (2.5 g; 342 kJ). This amount can vary between individuals, and are subject to factors such as intake or food intake. Although carbohydrates are not the only source of energy, but more needed carbohydrates as an energy source muscles for physical activity.

Liver glycogen deposits play an important role in maintaining blood glucose levels during the rest period (between the main meals) and during exercise. Liver glycogen levels can be depleted during the long periods of fasting (15 hours) and can store 490 mmol glycogen with a mixed diet up to 60 mmol glycogen with a diet low in carbohydrates. Consumption of foods high in carbohydrates can increase glycogen approximately 900 mmol. But because this heart glycogen deposits labile nature, it is recommended that a long exercise conducted 1-4 hours after eating carbohydrate food sources. If a long exercise conducted in the morning after an overnight fast, then a diet high in carbohydrate should be consumed at midnight.

3. Carbohydrates and Match Preparation

On the type of sports “Endurance” (durability) with high intensity like a marathon, triathlon and cross country in dire need of glycogen deposits rather than “Non-endurance sports” where intensitasnya low, high or only for a short time such as gymnastics, skiing, running a short distance, soccer, was.

A normal enough glycogen deposits or adequate for the non sports endurance (read : ways to increase your stamina). This can be achieved by consuming a high carbohydrate diet on a regular basis (7-10 g CHO/kg body weight/day or 55-70% of the total energy CHO), then reducing exercises and increase the consumption of carbohydrates 10 g/kg body weight/day 24-36 hours before a match. Unfortunately the eating habits of athletes can not meet this CHO intake, so the glycogen deposits become low.

On the non sports endurance which can be described with a long continuous exercise 90 minutes) < > and ultra endurance (> 4 hours), glycogen deposits normally will not meet. To overcome this known technique called “Carbohydrate Loading” that can enhance glycogen deposits of 200-300%, where fatigue may be postponed and the appearance of the athlete could be improved

4. Glycogen Or Carbohydrate Loading

Muscle glycogen content in untrained individuals is estimated to be 70-110 mmol/kg of the weight of the muscles. On the other hand trained endurance athletes with the diet mixed with breaks a day, might have muscle glycogen content of 130-230 mmol/kg of the weight of the muscles.

Muscle glycogen use during physical activity is influenced by various factors, such as exercise intensity (high intensity exercise, glycogen use increase), diet before exercise (the higher deposits of glycogen, the longer the athlete can do the exercises). A high-carbohydrate diet for 3 days produce glycogen deposits as much as 200 mmol/kg of the weight of the muscles, with the old exercise 170 minutes.

That’s a wide range of benefits in playing volleyball for health. Then  to exercise routine so that physical health is always awake. The game of volleyball is a sport that can be played by children to adult women as well as men. By playing volleyball will thrive in both elements of intellect abilities and feelings.
