Olympians Trevor Crabb and Tri Bourne Reveal What They Eat to Perform Their Best

Trevor Crabb and Tri Bourne are no strangers to a grueling fitness routine. As members of the U.S. Olympic volleyball team, they are constantly training to be at their peak for competition in Tokyo. The Games might be postponed until next year, but that doesn't mean these two don't stick to their diets, which Men's Health discovered when chatting with the duo.

What 2 Olympic Volleyball Players Eat to Train

The guys follow one simple nutrition philosophy: maintain a well-balanced diet.

"We want to get a little bit of everything," says Bourne.

Crabb agrees, but adds that the duo swears on eating anti-inflammatory foods as well.

When it comes to breakfast, Crabb and Bourne eat different foods. Crabb tends to go for a homemade juicemade with apples, carrots, spinach and gingeror a plant-based protein shake. Bourne prefers a bowl of gluten-free oatmeal with berries and dates for some natural sugar.

After breakfast comes a two-hour, on the sand training session, where the duo goes through a high intensity workout. Then, they'll snack on protein, but again, their choices are slightly different. Bourne likes to go for a plant-based protein shake while Crabb prefers to eat a protein bar or beef jerky.

Lunch is when Crabb and Bourne begin to eat more complex carbs and protein.

"If I know I have a weightlifting session in the afternoon, I'm going to go with more of a lean protein for really good fuel," Bourne says.

His go-tos are chicken with sweet potatoes or brown rice. But there's one thing he loves to eat more than anything: broccoli.

"It's a really good carb, but it also has so many nutrients in it," says Bourne. "That's my superfood. I'm all about itconstantly eating it." Crabb's lunch is similar with the addition of avocado, which he eats daily.

After Bourne and Crabb go to their second workout (where they might snack on dried fruits or another protein shake), it's dinnertime.m

They both eat to help their bodies recover from strenuous training. Both love to eat a good 10-12 ounce steak, some sweet potatoes, and greens, like asparagus or broccoli. But Bourne skips red meat before match days because it doesn't make him feel his best.

The athletes may have healthy diet, but they warn against copying their meals. Instead, they encourage taking time to learn what foods work best for your body.
