The Main Reason You're Not Getting the Most out of Your Training

Fri, 17/10/2014 - 12:18

The aim for all athletes is to start every training session as close to 100% as possible. While this isn’t always possible, you can give your body every opportunity to be at its best with commitment and dedication toward recovery.

Maximize Gains, Minimize Impact

The edge in performance is often found in how closely you can consistently train at your best. This doesn’t necessarily mean everything must be done full throttle, but that everything must be completed to the full requirements of the volume and intensity prescribed! The aim is to maximize the gains made in the training session, and to minimize the impact on the next session. If, due to fatigue, you approach the training session at only 70% of your ability, you have potentially lost 30% of gains and maximization of the training session!

everything must be completed to the full requirements of the volume and intensity prescribed!

Using the analogy from article 6 “How to prepare a Medium Rare Steak”, if you give the best chef in the world a stewing steak, the best he can possibly prepare is a "Medium Rare Stewing Steak”. By coming into every training session as close to 100% as possible, you are giving coaches at all levels the best quality steak to work with!

Creating Success is a 24/7 Commitment.

Whenever you aren’t training, you are recovering. If you train hard for 2 hours a day, there are 22 other hours you can either enhance or compromise gains. The commitment you put into your recovery will determine how close you are to 100% in each session. This is where the gains are made and you begin to maximize your potential!

The human body is an amazing machine. Regardless of what you do Pre and Post training or performance, it will find a way to recover. Our aim is to accelerate this process by leaving no stone unturned! For all coaches and parents, the better you can educate young athletes and influence the recovery amongst your training environments, the more you will maximize the hard work you are all putting in.
