How to train like a professional athlete Our goal is to introduce you to new strategies that will revive and ignite your training to help you accomplish your goals and achieve your dreams. Below are a few of your approaches that are rooted in your DNA analysis to guide an effective training program: Realize That Less is More There’s this notion that more is better. If I put in more time, I’m going to be stronger. But it’s not really the extra mile; it’s putting in the quality that will allow you to perform on game day. Break It Down People are often thinking about the second half or fourth quarter, shortly after a game begins. Break your game down into pieces. And it becomes a mind game — an easy game. Do what you can in the moment. Be present. Don’t project how you’re going to feel down the road. Rethink Calories Twenty-five years ago, nutritionists and sports performance coaches were telling us to eat a lot of carbohydrates, whereas today, people are shifting to healthier fat intake. That’s a real misnomer with calories – a calorie is not a calorie. Our metabolic systems digest calories differently. Many are under the notion that 250 calories are the same, whether it’s a doughnut or avocado; and it’s not the same thing. Pay Attention to Your Body This is common. People can lose some joint mobility and become injury-prone. Specific stretching and strengthening – predominantly in the core and glutes, which can lie dormant – will enhance performance more than running, biking or swimming another 60 minutes. Take Calculated Risks Taking calculated risks challenges you and creates positive stress. Stress doesn’t always have to be negative.
