3 Things to Make Your Sports Season a Success

Top 3 Things to Make Your Sports Season a Success

Athletes want to get compete on the highest level, get stronger and dominant their sport, doing whatever it takes. Great mentality to have for the  majority of the year. During the offseason, training can be at it’s highest intensity, your body will be able to recover properly in your down time. In season, that’s another story!  Practices and games and the “on the go mentality” increases stress on the body. Active recovery and proper nutrition needs to be a focus during the season. Here are the top 3 ways to get you there.

 Sports Success Tip 1: Adjust Your Training intensity

Decrease your training volume! During the offseason many athletes are working out 5-6 times a week. This is usually the right balance between getting in as much performance work as possible, while still allowing your body to recover. Once the season starts with increased practices and game days you’re going to need to scale back on the amount of training you’re doing. Some different ways to adjust your training load can be to lower the intensity, limit heavy weights, reduce number of training days and increase recovery methods. Focus on bodyweight mobility and strength.

Sports Success Tip 2: Increase Recovery Methods

Keeping your body fresh is most important! This is the time your body needs to be performing at its peak. The last thing you want is to go out on the ice or field and feel tight, sluggish, and under perform. Consistently going out to play with tight muscles and your body moving in-efficiently can lead to potential injures that will bring your season to a halt. No matter how talented you are, if you are on the sidelines, it doesn’t matter. Increasing muscle releasing, stretching and mobilizing combined with efficient body movement training can greatly improve performance and reduce injury risk.

Sports Season Success Tip 3: Pre and Post Game Nutrition

Athletes have a Go-Go-Go mindset, Plan your food and drink!  Food and water is the same as  fuel for a car. If you have a Ferrari you can’t put regular gas in it. As an athlete you are a Ferrari. Away game trips do not give you an excuse to eat poorly.  So make sure you make eating and hydration a priority. Carbs are your friend, give the body easy energy for the athlete. An in game electrolyte drink such Accelerade or bodyarmour can be beneficial in aiding endurance sports lasting over 1 hour 1/2 – 2 hours. Plenty of water, about 12-16 fl.oz per hour pre game. During the game have a mix between water an electrolyte carb drink. Post game drink 12-16 Fl.oz per pound lost, as well as, a protein, sugar, electrolyte combination to replenish lost fluids and nutrients and begin the rebuilding process. Then a meal an hour later.

Incorporate these 3 things into your in-season training and see a huge spike in your performance.

Diets and the Pavlovian conditioning battle

3 Tips to succeed on a “diet”

If it isn’t the new fitness craze it’s usually a new diet that cures all and is the ultimate weight loss, toner. The various diets marketed: Atkins, intermittent fasting, carb cycling, weight watchers, keto, southbeach and the numerous others that hit the main stream. There are some that get results others a horror story.

Nutrition, for many, creates a challenge. The food that is often available is “junk food” fast food chains, as well as many pop in food restaurants. Food is also used for celebration, meetings, bordem, and it brings people together! Papa John’s pizza pays millions to be the NFL’s pizza sponsor. If a house has a football game on, there is a good chance Pizza, wings and coke are also being indulged. Food, events and having the right people creates the ultimate source of pleasure. The personal stories shared and the bonds that are created at these gatherings, overtime, create that involuntary positive response, classical conditioning. This happens with many situation, though they may be different, the habit created becomes the greatest obstacle.

The ANSWER!?… Change the behavior or get a hypnotist… could work! For the article’s sake, we’ll assume you’re doing it yourself. Here are 3 ways to succeed!

Nutrition Tip 1:  It’s a marathon not a sprint 

Choose a diet which fits your lifestyle not just for the moment, because you have a goal that’s a few weeks away, but a diet that can be adopted as a lifestyle.

Nutrition Tip 2 : Stop saying you’re on a diet

Everyone has done it, sat at a Thanksgiving meal ate the veggies and some of the turkey breast. Someone yells across the table “you have to try the stuffing”… “I’m on a diet I can’t eat that”. You create two specific problems. First, you become a target. Someone at the table is going to continue to insist you have some. “It’s ok it’s a holiday you can have a cheat meal” now you test your will and continue to fight back and though some may commend you… WHY?! just say “it looks great but I honestly don’t want any right now.” Without realizing it, when you answer “I’m on a diet” you reinforced to everyone but more importantly yourself, that instead of a lifestyle change this is just a temporary habit. Which leads into the second problem, don’t create a situation for yourself that makes you want to push the “red button”. You know, when you tell a kid don’t push that button? curiosity kills them! they push it. Maybe you don’t give in that time, but you’re creating an obstacle for yourself where there doesn’t need to be one. Don’t be your own worst enemy… “Thank you for the offer, it looks great! Honestly, I’m full”… try it!

Nutrition Tip 3:Plan your food

As you’re reading this you’re probably making a face. We plan our whole lives, activities, Dr. appointments, Kids soccer games, friends spelling bees, you name it it’s in a schedule. As big of a challenge as food is, it needs to be Scheduled! Set up a day to prep your food for the week. Then Make appointments for yourself to make sure you’ll eat it at the appropriate time. Even the busiest person can find time to sneak in a healthy meal, they just may not realize it. The meal is made by you and has everything you need to succeed, minus all the extra stuff. Don’t leave your food to chance, first time you get busy you will stop for the quickest food choice, and as discussed earlier, it’s usually not the greatest option.

Creating a habit with intent is the difference between having success on a “diet” and having a horror story experience. Reflect on the poor nutritional habits you have created and find solutions to combat them. The three in this article are a great place to start.

What to look for in your Coconut water

Coconut water quality, what to look for

The question of Coconut water versus sports drink was discussed in our last article. Though Coconut water did not come out victorious in the electrolyte battle, it is still one of the best choices for general fluid needs, over juices, sodas and sports drinks. Coconut water isn’t cheap, here are 4 things to keep an eye out for to make sure you’re getting the greatest value for your body and your wallet.

 1. Pasteurizing coconut water with heat:

Coconut water is naturally perishable. It must be kept cold. To extend shelf life, many companies use high heat to kill bacteria and extend shelf life.Killing bacteria may be a plus, but it also loses it vitamins minerals, enzymes and if those don’t bother you, it’s flavor! If coconut water is from concentrate, the heat process is performed twice.

2. Adopting water from mature coconuts:

The value of the coconut come from the young green coconuts. The older the coconut the less nutrients are in the water and the more is in the pulp of the coconut. Mature coconuts are better for making coconut milk,

3. Adding preservatives to flavor and sweeten coconut water:

Usually the first sign of a mature coconut being used and an acidic taste being given off. To mask the taste, companies add “natural flavors” or sweeteners.

4. Dipping coconuts in chemicals for transport:

When shipping the coconuts into the US, companies will worry of coconut preservation. non-organic coconuts are usually preserved for transport. To preserve them, the coconuts are dipped in known carcinogens – formaldehyde or sodium metabisulphite. If the chemical seeps through, it’ll poison the coconut and you guessed it transfer into your delicious coconut water.
Coconut water is delicious, nutritious, refreshing but also expensive. If you’re spending 2 to 3 dollars per 12oz make sure you’re getting the most nutrient value for your money. Stay tuned for companies to look for and stay away from in the coconut world.

Coconut water top choice

Is coconut water a natural electrolyte replenisher?

Coconut Water, Better than Gatorade…

benefits of coconut water

The natural way is the best way! One great product that has been brought into the food market is coconut water. Coconut water, however, is not new. It has been a favorite  time for the few that live Among it. Luckily, it is now readily available in the US. One of the benefits of coconut water is it’s natural ability to replenish our electrolyte needs. Can coconut water  be the solution over gatorade when electrolyte levels are low?

The food industry, just as any other business, look to minimize cost and increase profit. Often, Food coconut water benefitscoloring, preservatives, added sugars/flavors, unhealthy transport practices, get mixed into the hype of a product. Then what may have been a great product often becomes obsolete because higher quality processes are more expensive. That’s capitalism!

Coconut water, not to be confused with coconut milk, comes from young, green coconuts, a natural source of electrolytes including sodium and potassium. Eight ounces of coconut water 250 mg of sodium, 600 mg of potassium, the electrolyte content would be a great replacement not to mention it also has other  vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids. Coconut water would be a great replacement for gatorade.

Great news! A drink that quenches your thirst, has lower sugar and is natural! Well…small problem. The coconut water that’s sold in the US has a similar potassium serving but the sodium is too low too truly replenish electrolyte stores. Vita coco, a popular coconut water brand, though advertised as pure coconut water, only has 29 grams of sodium to the usual 250 of true coconut water.

Best of the US Coconut water

The natural choice is always my choice, however, in this case the natural is actually a fake. Truly natural coconut water would be a great replacement, but due to the ingredients, additives, process of creation, the coconut water sold in the US would not be a better choice over a Gatorade , in regards to hydration.

The pros and cons of BCAA

BCAAs magical supplement or a marketing gimmick

Supplements for help

 

 

Buying supplements and integrating them into your training  program can be confusing and if not done right costly. With no true regulation of the products in the industry, it can be hard to look past the marketing. BCAA’s are often a simple addition to any training program. There are 20 amino acids, 9 are essential and of those 9, 3 are BCAA’s. LeTraining performance ucine, Isoleucine, Valine. It accounts for about 35% of muscle protein. Magical supplement or marketing gimmick … here are the pros and cons.

BCAA Pros

  1. BCAAs are know to help in muscle mass gain. Leucine has been widely researched and has been found to stimulate protein synthesis. When combined with weight training, the two activate the muscle building pathway called mTORC1. Besides its ability to build, it also has the ability to increase the cell’s capacity for protein synthesis.
  2. Extra Energy! Don’t like using stimulants, BCAAs may be your solution. Besides aiding ATP use, Isoleucine is responsible for facilitating glucose uptake in cells, allowing for a quicker glycogen restoration and leucine is known for facilitating fat metabolism. BCAAs have been found to inhibit the onset of both central and peripheral fatigue during exercise, so you can go stronger for longer. BCAAs are used as an additional energy source during prolonged exercise. Even after your body has used its glycogen stores, you can pull power from BCAAs in your muscles.
  3. Hold off muscle breakdown.  Vegetarians, stand up. The Leucine amino acid, is very important in protein synthesis.If you are unable to get enough protein, adding BCAAs will help keep your body in an anabolic state or at least help keep you from a catabolic state.

BCAA Cons

  1. Sleeping problems. If you have trouble sleeping, you may want to think twice. BCAAs compete with tryptophan, you know the Thanksgiving sleep aid. However, there are some sources that say otherwise so test it for yourself.
  2.  Vitamin B depletion.  BCAAs need the presence of Vitamin B. That in mind, getting a quality Vitamin B (B6 is usually mentioned) supplement may help. Eating food that has a nice serving of B6 is also helpful, Turkey breast, grass fed beef, chicken, tuna, avocados, pistachios are all great sources.

Do we need BCAAs

BCAA are just three essential amino acids. Technically, any time a complete protein is being ingested, That is a serving of BCAAs. The people who benefit most from BCAAs are those who are on restrictive diets or vegetarians, workout in the morning but are unable to eat prior to.

BCAAs can be very effective and helpful but in specific situations. Though the use of BCAAs won’t hurt you (in most cases) it shouldn’t be on the list of supplements needed if money is an issue.

Do You Have a Big Butt or Is It an Illusion?

Do You Have a Big Butt or Is It an Illusion?

Wow, That girl has a huge behind (or that guy to be equal)! Your eyes may be deceiving you. Big butts, do lie. Lower back pain, tight hips, tight hamstrings are all signs of it. The issue may be your posture. An imbalance usually shown by the hips where your pelvis tilts down in the front and tilts up in the back.That tilting movement forces the lower back to arch, in turn you have a case of an anterior pelvic tilt.

 

What are Anterior Pelvic Tilt Muscle Imbalances?

As you can see from the picture the butt is sticking out, the lower back arches, the hamstrings pull up, hip flexors pull down, and the abdomen sticks out. This is a body full of muscular imbalances.

 

What are Anterior Pelvic Tilt Compensation Patterns?

Working out with these muscle imbalances causes compensation patterns, potential pain and tightness. The back arching causes overactivity of the low back muscles which in turn under-activates the abdominals. Which means your core isn’t working! The front of the hips pulling down over-activates the hip flexor muscles which causes the butt to stick out and under-activate the glutes and hamstrings. Here are a couple examples of anterior pelvic tilt during popular exercises.
Anterior pelvic tilit exerciseAnterior pelvic tilt exercise

Pain and Tightness Caused by an Anterior Pelvic Tilt

Working out while your hips are stuck in an anterior pelvic tilt may cause you pain, tightness, or you may not feel any issues. It’s like a piano hanging over the room by a string, it may stay up there for a bit but it will eventually snap. When it does, you will feel the consequences. Attack it now before a real injury occurs.

 

Does All Tightness and Pain Mean the Same Thing?

Nope! Tightness or pain in the back or hips is usually from the muscle being over active and in a shortened position. The hamstrings are a different story, refer back to the picture above and you can see the hamstrings are actually under active and lengthened. The Hamstrings are a long and especially in a anterior pelvic tilt case, overactive muscle group.

 

Don’t Stretch your Hamstrings!

If you have “tight” hamstrings  even though you stretch them, keep in mind, the hamstrings are actually already lengthened to their max leading to that feeling of “tightness”. Stretching them further won’t be beneficial and can actually make your compensation pattern worse. If you want to stretch them do it dynamically.

 

How to Combat Anterior Pelvic Tilt

The best method we have found is a combination of release, mobilize, stretch, activate, and integrate. This involves releasing and static stretching of the overactive muscles (hip flexors and lower back), the hamstrings you would still release but dynamically stretch. The dynamic stretch will limit over lengthening. Mobilize the hip joint. Activate the under-active muscles (glutes and abdominals). Then integration of all of these muscles properly into your exercise routine and/or sport.

 

If you are a performer, athlete or simply looking to get rid of some pain. Assess yourself. If, when standing, your hips are not in neutral position but tilting up instead, then, congratulations, you have an anterior pelvic tilt! We have some work to do!

5 great hockey training specific exercises

Hockey performance 5 great exercises:

There are many great training techniques that may be extremely helpful for any hockey player looking to increase performance. However, the integration of the exercises chosen is what makes the difference between a successful program and a Mens health training routine.

 

Single leg dead lift:

A great core and stability exercise, as well as, a great way to incorporate bilateral training and focus on individual sides. A regular Dead lift is also a great exercise for straight power through the body.

Heavy Kettlebell swing:

Hockey is based of power. Hip speed and mobility allows for the greatest hits, most efficient stride, highest velocity shot, athletic movement is based of the hips. Kettlebell training in general is great for hockey training, but a heavy kettlebell swing is a great way to develop all aspects of the game.

 

Medicine ball rotational slam:

Weight transfer, is often an underrated ability. Medicine ball rotational slams may help with shooting power, hitting and accepting hits. Moving with the ball, transferring weight, understanding how to generate the most power in your slam through full range of motion, if applied properly will take your game to another level.

Boxing:

Boxing is the ultimate sport of movement. Each punch thrown is based of the last. Understanding how to be efficient is the name of the game.  Learning to throw punches effectively and efficiently forces the athlete to learn how to load properly, turn the hips and transfer the weight, connect and then without missing a beat repeat. Reaction time is another great benefit!

Pull chop press :

A great core exercise and another great exercise to focus on proper weight transfer. Instead of sit ups and crunches try this Athletic exercise.

There are many great exercises but there are also a wide range of not so great exercises. When training for Hockey or sport, weight transfer, stability and power are essential.

Serving size guidance

Serving size Vs. portion size

First world problems. When a child doesn’t finish their food, ” starving kids in (insert 3rd world country)” Understanding the difference between  a serving size and a portion size can help get your diet back on track. I was once asked randomly, at a favorite Wawa in the area, “if you go to buy a slice of pizza and the owner of the pizza shop offers you a whole pizza for only a dollar more than you would pay for your single slice. Would you take it?” Now… I love a deal. Deals in other areas of our lives are great!  “Did you hear the deal I got on this apartment?!”…” Yeah, I got a steal of a deal for my car” “See this shirt i got it for 78% off!”. A “great deal” is always appreciated, however, when it comes to your portion size, don’t look for a deal! If you want one slice of pizza, don’t buy a pie. If you order pasta and you get a full bowl of it, that doesn’t mean you should eat all of it.

Understanding what your body needs and what it doesn’t, is essential. Leptin has been popular in the media as the culprit. For others, it may just be a lack of knowledge. To start, use the chart above as a reference. When making a salad, don’t use a bottle of dressing, use a shot glass. Put yourself in the best position to win and winning will be inevitable.

Bonus tip:

Food logging, whether in the notes of your phone, hand written journal or an application (Training Aspects nutrition app). Logging is one of the best ways to truly understand the dynamics of a diet.  It’ll take 10minutes out of your day, suck it up and look at the bright side. The issue in nutrition will instantly appear.
