Well-deserved Rest
By: Nick Pinkelman, Assistant Athletic Performance Director

One of the most over looked elements of a training program is the recovery and restoration process. All too often, the coach or athlete just wants to always push themselves with the gas pedal to the floor. We see it all of the time; athletes wanting to train 5 or more times a week o athletes responding to a heart breaking loss by wanting to immediately get in the next day to begin training for next season. The only thing that either of those examples will do for long term athletic development is wear down the nervous system. As a coach you have to always remember it is more the long-term development than short-term, no matter how bad that an athlete wants the short-term result to come to fruition.

Here at EEA, we take the role of recovery and restoration very seriously. A few guidelines that we follow:

1. In order for the athlete to perform optimally in both competition and training, consistent sleeping and eating patterns should be monitored and followed.

2. Utilization of proper recovery and restoration exercises like myofascial release methods (self- massage, form-roller, tiger tail, etc). In fact, with many of our advanced and professional athletes we will even have an entire workout dedicated solely to recovery and restoration.

3. Much-needed rest is imperative. We like our athletes to have at least one full day off each week. In addition, after a competitive season, we will give them anywhere from 1-3 weeks off (depending on the given situation), for their bodies and minds to recovery from the tough grind of the season.

As a coach you shouldn’t always be concerned with getting results for today or tomorrow. In order for this to happen you have to ensure that their CNS (central nervous system) is always functioning optimally, and not over loaded with stress. It may seem very simple, but managing the stress levels placed on athletes could be the difference between achieving optimal results or burning an athlete out prior to reaching a heightened performance attainment.

It’s important to give your body a couple of weeks off at the end of the season. If you don’t, you’ll pay the price later. This transition period is also the best time to heal any nagging injuries.

Do you think along with the protein shake for weight loss that the Ascential Lean would be a good first product for weight loss? :roll:
