Gayatri Salunke, Priyanka, Rupali Sengupta
The ongoing global pandemic brought about by Coronavirus II (SARS - CoV - 2 or COVID-19) has caused an ongoing cessation of sporting competitions and training facility closures, posing fundamental challenge for amateur and elite sporting professional. The research conducted consisted of questions in a differential format, with questions related to responses ?before? and ?during? confinement conditions. Food & Supplement consumption (macronutrient & micronutrient), snacks between meals, and intake of junk food were consumed more consciously during confinement, with alcohol binge drinking decreasing significantly. The COVID-19 home confinement had a negative effect on all Physical Activity (PA) & training intensity levels (vigorous, moderate, walking and overall); thereby changing the dietary intake in accordance with the changed regime during pandemic (54.4 %). Results indicated direct relationship between change in the dietary patterns altering the training regime & vice versa. Significant levels of stress have been observed among the athletes regarding their performance due to the compromise in their training regime as a result of the ongoing global pandemic (39.9%).
