You might be surprised to know just how similar the Average Joe or Jane is to a professional athlete – both socially and physically. They all want the most bang for their buck. Most pro athletes are no different than anyone else in that they want to get in their training, and then go to visit their families, relax, play golf, etc. They really don’t have interest in putting in six hours per day in training outside of the times when they have to do so (namely, in-season).
To that end, if I had to pick three principles crucial to the success of both populations, they’d be the following:
1️⃣ Realize that consistency is everything.
2️⃣ Balance competing demands, and prioritize the ones that are the most pressing at a given time.
3️⃣ Recognize that the success comes from the overall program, not just the individual parts. #cspfamily
