Champions are made in the off season. Some athletes think of the off season as “time off”. They want to take a break from training and enjoy a vacation from their sport.
That’s fine. If an athlete wants to use the time between seasons to vacation from their sport, that’s their prerogative. Maybe their sport is their hobby instead of their passion. And that’s okay too. If you’re an athlete as a hobby then you can stop reading here. But if your sport is your passion, if it’s your breath of life or the blood flowing through your veins, then keep reading because I’m talking to you.
You’ll never see an elite athlete taking a long break in the off season. They might take a week or two off from training but then they’re right back in the gym. They understand this simple fact, “The off season is the best time to prepare for the Season!”
It doesn’t matter if the sport is Football, Basketball, Rugby, Soccer, Baseball, Powerlifting, Bodybuilding, Track and Field, Skiing, Cycling, or any of the other demanding sports we love, everyone who competes at the highest level in their sport understands the necessity of training in the off season.
So if you’re thinking of missing your workout or taking a break from your sport, just ask yourself, “Do I want to be the best I can be or is this just a hobby?”
If you want to be the best you can be, if you want to join the ranks of the truly elite athletes in our world then you’d better get back to your training and leave the off season to the athletic hobbyists.
One last thing, always remember the importance of proper supplementation and nutrition to your training! http://www.Mega-Pro.com/index_sn.php
