You Sport Is The Best Training Method
In the last post I talked about being the gym champion who can't perform in competition. I've also posted my opinions on training methods that athlete use to get ready for their sport. Remember that the most important method of preparation is to do that activity. Everything else supplements that sport. In designing a workout program, see how much time you have to develop towards your sport, cardio, stretching, strength, etc. You have to balance it out so that you touch on each area but you have to develop your skills. Look at pro football players. They lift, they run, etc. Don't be fooled by their conditioning routines and think that the skills they have in throwing, catching, picking up speed off the first step, etc. Those skills come from playing the game. All other training supports those skills developed through experience.
