There’s an old saying that goes, “Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.” And this is especially true when it comes to training. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a seasoned veteran, it’s important to be strategic about your training.
One of the biggest training mistakes people of all ages make is not putting enough thought into their training. They’ll just go to the gym and do whatever they feel like doing that day. It’s not just young athletes training for middle and high school sports who do this—adult athletes are guilty as well.
If you want to optimize your time (and get optimal results) you need to think about training strategically.
At our training facility and gym in Victoria, we’re lucky enough to have a huge amount of space to train, an elite team of certified coaches, and modern, state-of-the-art equipment to train with.
But just because we have access to all this great equipment doesn’t mean we should use it all the time.
Just because you can lift a heavy weight, doesn’t mean you should.
Just because you can run a marathon, doesn’t mean you should.
Just because you can do 100 push-ups, doesn’t mean you should.
The key is to find the right balance of intensity and volume for your goals.
And this is where strategic training comes in.
Strategic training is all about finding that perfect sweet spot of intensity and volume for your specific goals. It’s about doing just the right amount to get the results you want, without overdoing it and risking injury.
It’s about being smart and strategic in your approach to training.
And it all starts with knowing your goals.
Once you know what your personal goals are, you can start to put together a strategic plan that will help you achieve them.
