When one sees different kinds of different athletes in all sports and at all levels over the past 10 years, it will be apparent that the “conditioning” element of elite competition and performance has made tremendous strides in its growth and development. It seems that as the information age continues to evolve and more and more knowledge about tools grows and the efficiency and effectiveness behind high performance are easily accessible. Today, the fitness industry is plagued with research, opinions, beliefs and even myths behind the most successful ways to become the “ultimate air-conditioned athlete.”
A simple online quest in the world of conditioning results to treacherously navigate a maze of available resources. Even the use of the term “air conditioning” is lax these days. The word “conditioning” or the meaning behind being in a “conditioned” situation can be a complete debate in itself. For the sake of this piece I would consider the term ‘conditioned’: a state of optimal physical, emotional, nutritional and psychological well-being for an athlete that offers an ideal opportunity to successfully perform their specific role, within their particular sport, injury. At a consistently high level and avoid it at the same time. It is not correct to assume that stability comes only from being conditioned, as there are many other aspects of competition that can affect an athlete’s performance, although reaching the ideal conditioned state level allows athletes to succeed on their sports ground . There will be a great opportunity to get it.
Modern athletes are getting stronger, faster, more accurate, more flexible and smarter every day. Empirical evidence-based research, as well as scientific research, indicates that key factors such as strength, strength, agility, speed, overall fitness and anatomy all play important roles in determining an athlete’s performance. Frequent visits to the gym several times a week, completing regular cardio sessions lead to some stretching, if athletes want to achieve a high level of completion there is no reduction. While athletes have trained more intensively and have been more focused for a while, it is certainly safe to say that “conditioning” has become a scientific art, an art that requires total dedication; Thoughts carefully thought out, developed and calculated; With an undeniable level of patience, persistence and dedication. The conditioning side of your performance as an athlete must be seriously considered and it is important to understand that every sport and athlete takes place in different ways, and therefore different training methods and techniques require more positive feedback. In my opinion, I think the following are important points when looking at your conditioning regimens.
• Start by carefully considering the level you are currently participating in or want to achieve and what your expectations are (physical, emotional and psychological) as an athlete at this level. Try to identify the top performers at your level and understand the elements of these athletes that make them successful. This will help you understand some of the basic conditioning elements that are important for achieving higher levels of performance.
• Complete a personal performance profile identifying your physical, emotional and psychological strengths and weaknesses. This self-awareness is essential to developing your own conditioning regimen. Compare your strengths and weaknesses with the top performers in your game.
• Share the above information with industry professionals such as a personal trainer for physical conditioning and a health coach and / or a sports psychologist for emotional and psychological conditioning. Each of these professionals will have the expertise to help you as an athlete develop specific programs aimed at achieving better fitness.
• Begin with these professionals creating a conditioning routine aimed at developing physical, emotional and psychological demands in sports.
