Munster Academy strength and conditioning coach Joe McGinley recently hosted a seminar on healthy lifestyle and nutrition for the parents of Christian Brothers College senior players at their school in Sydney Hill, Cork.

The seminar focused on the IRFU statement issued last week relating to young people's health risks linked to the use of sport supplements.

Joe emphasised the importance of a healthy lifestyle and in particular the benefits of knowing the nutritional value of certain food types.

He also commented on the need of sleep for active players and completed the seminar with some useful options for different meal times throughout the day.

The seminar was very well received by the parents, who created good interactions throughout the presentation.

Munster Rugby would like to thank CBC for hosting the seminar.
