This workout will give you 0 results if there’s no proper nutrition.

It is worth mentioning that Kompany follows a well-balanced diet focused on importing a lot of carbohydrates, proteins, and the needed vitamins and minerals for the body.

Carbohydrates are the primary fuel for the body, and that’s why they are very important for every sportsman.

Second, the proteins (also known as muscle builders) are nutrients or a type of amino acids responsible for muscle recovery and the muscle-building process. This is one of the biggest reasons why after every workout it is necessary to have a meal high in protein. Many professional sports stars are using supplements to get even better recovery and put muscle mass faster.

The last puzzle of the diet chain are the vitamins and minerals such as A, D, E, K, B, C and Calcium, Sodium, Iron, Magnesium, Zinc which mainly can be found in the fruits and vegetables. That’s why almost every healthy meal consists of salad full of vegetables or a fruit of choice as a dessert.

We don’t own or know anything in detail about Vincent’s diet, but we can share few links that can help you create your own nutrition plan.
