Each time you train in the gym, whether it’s weights or on the mat, you have a certain period of time while you’re in there to get us much work as possible done and get the most out of it. If you can get more out of each session, your progress and growth will be much faster. Out of 10 training sessions, if your competitors have all 10 out of 10 as extremely productive and pushed to the limit, they will beat you if you only had 6 out of 10. If you want to be far ahead of your competitors, strive to get much more out of each training session; train like it was your last every time you show up. The best way of doing this is to train for your training sessions. This means doing certain things (in and outside the gym) that will allow you to be more recovered, more ready and fresher for your next training session. Proper rest and correct nutrition are essential for the fastest recovery times. If you can heal/recover faster than your opponents, you can ultimately train harder and more often than them. Adding rehabilitative measures into your training system is extremely smart and will keep you training longer and healthier. This means including days off, lighter training days and workouts specifically designed for recovery into your program. Body work such as massage/deep tissue and ice/heat baths can also aid in faster recovery times. Regular chiropractic care is must to keep you free of pinched nerves, pain and muscular imbalances; these problems are common to all athletes and if you’re not under chiropractic care as an athlete, you’re FAR behind everyone else. Finally, prepare mentally for each training session you attend. Whether this means requires some regular thought all day, a few minutes of meditating right beforehand or simply listening to your favorite tunes in the car on the way to the gym, take some time to get your mind ready so you have better focus for your training session.
