Preparation is the key to successful training.
I meet people daily who want to be better in some way. They want to be thinner, fitter, healthier, more successful, less tired, and so on. I want to motivate you the athlete to think about training as a way of life as part of your lifestyle. Make training part of your daily habits. Just like brushing your teeth or having breakfast.
In life you decide to get out of bed usually for work, school or just because you are hungry for breakfast. When you make that first decision to get up that's the most important start for the day, as you have made a plan.
Before you get out of bed make the same simple decision to exercise that day. When you waken if possible put on your workout clothes and that puts you in the right frame of mind and you will feel fitter and more prepared to exercise. Eat for your session. If you need energy, prepare by giving your body the carbohydrate you need to finish the session with jest. This may mean getting up early to start eating breakfast 2 hours before training.
Breakfast may include oats, fruit, eggs and milk but whatever you decide to eat give your body time to digest it and make sure it is balanced and suitable for the workout to follow.
Always have a plan, a goal or a focus each day. This can be to work on strength, Plyometrics, endurance or just core work. Then decide how you can achieve that goal. If for talks sake you decide to want to improve your speed and feel that Plyometrics will help improve your reactions and thus leg speed, think about what you may need perhaps small hurdles or 3 or 4 boxes to jump on and off. Then find out where you can get these make them or even borrow.
Most people have steps benches or crates around there house so you will find that if you work hard to prepare for the session you are more likely to do the training as you have planned it well.
Next think of where is most suitable to train for your sessions. If you need to be on a track check the opening hours but if it’s Plyometrics a flat grassy field or thick exercise mat is fine. Then you’re almost set.
I think it is best to phone a friend of like mind set to make the workout fun and more enjoyable. You will be surprised at how many friends would join you in your gladiator workouts. If you can to try to make it a regular occurrence each week that you meet and train that style, so that improvements can be seen and reps or recovery’s, or times improved upon. This way of preparing daily for training can take a few minutes while still in bed but it can make all the difference. This way you do not have regrets only success stories.
