3 ways athletes can prepare for the spring season
How you spend the winter months can make a big difference come springtime. Coach Ben Kelley offered three steps to help you prepare for a breakout spring season.
- Rest. If you are coming off playing competitive games this fall or have been training hard in the weight room, it’s important to take some time and rest. Recover with up to two weeks of no intense activity before starting pre-season development to avoid burn out and chronic fatigue.
- Set goals. Look ahead and plan how you can best utilize the pre-season to prepare. Talk to your coaches and set timely, specific goals to stay on track. You should aim to improve your speed, strength and stability with a well-rounded program that prepares you for the workload of the spring.
- Get to work! Preparing properly in the pre-season will give you an edge on the competition and set you up for success. Once you have taken time to reset and establish clear objectives, you should push yourself, challenge your comfort zone, and get 1% better every day.
What you do in the offseason determines the success that you will have in the spring!
