Training is the 99%


“Win or lose you will never regret working hard, making sacrifices, being disciplined or focusing too much. Success is measured by what we have done to prepare for competition.” – John Smith

There is a lot of truth behind this because your preparation for competition (and I’ve said this before) is the true struggle. This is where your focus should lie as this is where 99% of the work that you do is going to be done. The actual competition and performance itself is but a small sliver of your work as an athlete.

Train like you compete and you will find that the competition seems easier. This technique will also serve to calm your nerves on the day of the competition. You will not have to do anything different than how you’ve been doing out. Despite the outcome of the competition you know how hard you worked and you know how much you improved. There is no failure there, only progress. Focus on you training time and cherish it.

The keys to any good training regiment.
