Here are a few more things I’ve learned in my training. Hopefully, they’ll inspire you to engage in some reflection and maybe even some writing. I’d love to hear your contributions to the list.
1.) Keep a training log. Write down times, loads, recovery levels, and general observations. This will allow you to measure your progress and improve your training regimen. To know when you’re going, you’ve got to know where you’ve been.
2.) Active recovery is ten times as beneficial as sitting on the couch. Take fish oil, use protein supplements, ice sore muscles, and do basic joint mobility exercises. Give your body the things it needs to grow, repair, and change. A Lamborghini without fuel is just a pretty hunk of metal.
3.) Read constantly. Learn something new about training every day. There are countless resources available via the internet, and some of the best advice you ever receive will be absolutely free. Just look around.
Hey, I like #3 because Beastly News is a great place to do just that — read constantly. So bookmark this website and return often! Anyway, there’s plenty more that Jon Gilson has learned from training so click the link below to read the rest…
