Welcome back to the blog! With summer and off-season training, most players really start to struggle with staying consistent.
Recently, I had a call with a college team, and despite their set schedule of working out, most of the players were struggling with staying consistent with their workouts. One thing you need to understand in sports AND in life is this:
CONSISTENCY ALWAYS WINS!
Think of any successful athlete, business person, author, or musician. The ones that stayed consistent over a long period of time are the ones that were successful are the ones that win.
So, how do you create consistency with your off-season training?
I'm going to break it down into three simple steps for you to follow and to take action.
Number one is figure out your purpose.
Think to yourself, why is this important to me? Why do I need to be consistent with my off-season training? When you have a purpose and a reason for wanting to do something, it's a lot easier to do it.
Number two is develop habits, habits, habits.
I can't stress the importance of this enough. When you have consistent habits put in place, it'll make your training easier. Plan your workouts, switch up your workout so it stays fresh, and find a consistent time to do your workouts. Develop habits of drinking water and eating well so you can perform well.
Number three is find an accountability partner.
It is much easier to break promises to ourselves than it is to break promises to others. If you don't already have a training partner or an accountability partner go find one. This could be a teammate, friend, parent, sibling, anyone who is going to keep you accountable with your goals. It pushes you to not disappoint them and to stick to you what said you were going to do.
Doing these three things will help you immensely in your off-season training and sticking to your current and future goals!
