1 - BE THE EXPERT OF YOUR OWN BODY.
As an athlete, high intensity strength and power routines are necessary for getting out of your comfort zone, learning about your capacity, and establishing new physiological territory. The focus of my training programs are to develop strength and a sharp central nervous system. Three components:
1-Weight training. Incorporating weights builds a lean body, stronger joint and bone structures for optimal function and injury prevention. And let’s be honest, you look bad ass.
2-Interval training. Treadmill, rower, elliptical, skill mill, versa climber, aerodyne bike, outdoors - you name it, we do it. The goal is heart rate variability and to train in the max heart rate or ‘anaerobic’ zone, like athletes do. Think sprinter. Think lean body.
3-Variation. Variation is key when it comes to keeping a sharp central nervous system. Your body is quick to optimize and predict. As soon as that happens, the exercises will change in intensity, duration, and/or direction.
2 - MAKE MENTAL HYGIENE PART OF YOUR ROUTINE.
As much as we train our bodies, we should make the same investment in our mental game. I like to call it mental hygiene. It's the score keeper of your emotional output, your energy, and your time.
What is mental hygiene?
Similar to how plaque builds up on your teeth, our thoughts and questions build up in our brain if they go unaddressed. These are the thoughts about our career, our relationships, our health, our past, present, and future. When cognitive plaque builds up in your mind the result is anxiety or faulty decision making. As a coach and with my psychology background, I guide clients to help address these questions and thoughts in order to provide clarity and hygiene to their thinking patterns and decision making.
