-FAVOURITE FOODS: I keep my diet clean and enjoy various types of food to keep me at optimal performance for my events. I use nutrition to improve my body composition and to ensure I accelerate my hard earned efforts in the gym!
I have lived in Christchurch most of my life, however earlier this year I relocated to the North Shore Auckland to commence my studies towards a Bachelor of Communications majoring in Marketing.
I have competed in motorsport since I was five years old, beginning in Go-Karts. From there, I moved to speedway racing at the age of eight and have been doing so ever since! I have competed in three classes in speedway racing; Quater Midgets, TQ Midgets and my current division, Sprintcars. I have placed in a few national events such as the New Zealand TQ Midget Championship, 1st at the South Island TQ Midget Championship, 1st at the New Zealand TQ Midget Grand Prix and 2nd in the New Zealand Sprintcar Grand Prix in my rookie season. I am also the current Canterbury Champion for Sprintcars and was the first rookie to achieve this honor.
My goal is to become New Zealand’s first professional Sprintcar driver and look forward to competing in both the United States of America and Australia soon!
MATTHEW’S SUPPLEMENT HINTS AND TIPS FOR THOSE LOOKING TO INCREASE LEAN MUSCLE
A high quality whey protein such as Scorpion’s Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC), is an ideal protein source to be ingested pre and post training to help prevent the catabolism of my lean tissue while I train and to help accelerate the recovery process post training.
Nutrient timing is one very important aspect of nutrition, and it is imperative to provide the right fuels for your body when your body needs it if you are looking to maximise your efforts.
