What defines a person’s potential? Or perhaps a better question should be, how can one fully unlock their human potential? We can define human potential as a paradox by where our internal perspective’s meets the trials and triumphs of our experiences. This paradox is both a catalyst for growth, and a core reason potential within athletic development is widely misunderstood, much less achieved. Many athletes fail to achieve their desired results because too much of an emphasis is placed on the physical aspects of training rather than the full picture of athletic development as a whole. We at FitSpeed recognize these misconceptions and have simplified a method with synchronized ingredients to unlock the best possible athletic version of you.
Mental fitness promotes the idea of a dynamic concept, not a fixed outcome. Athletes are in constant flux as they progress and develop through their performance life cycle. Although athletes can reach high levels of mental fitness as they journey through their long term athletic developmental stages, it becomes a necessity for them to understand that their mental capabilities will constantly be challenged as the demands, conditions, and pressures they face continually change over time.
Physical fitness is defined as any type of stimulus that effects the physical elements of sports such as mobility, flexibility, strength, power, acceleration, deceleration, dynamic vision, and reaction time. Each of these elements need to be addressed to ensure an athletes success within competition. Fit Speed builds its physical training around five basic principles; overload, goal-specific, micro-progressions, regressions, and lateralization’s. This ensures that our focus is of quality not quantity.
Athletes understand the importance of physical training for optimal performance and improvement. However, rest and recovery is also a significant aspect of athletic development because it allows the body time to repair and regenerate soft tissue between work outs. During the designated recovery period, the body can adapt to stresses associated with physical training, and replenish muscle glycogen (energy stores). There are two different categories of recovery:
Nutrition, in some ways can be considered the most crucial pillar for athletic development. It provides the primary source of energy needed to perform at a high level during intense prescribed physical activity. The foods we eat, and the timing in which we consume them, directly impacts strength training/athletic performance, the body’s ability to recovery/regenerate, body composition/transformation, and finally our mental sharpness and acuity. Carbohydrates powers your performance, protein aids muscle growth and repair, and hydration regulates the body’s ability to function. The proportion of carbohydrates, protein and hydration required depends on the type of work out, intensity, volume, and sport. Optimal nutrition is essential as it powers and supports the body towards its sports performance goals.
