Hey man, I just wanted to know what you thought about athletes taking spin classes? i figured it would help get me in a lot better shape as well as kill my legs. Also, I was wondering if you ever had your athletes train more than once a day, and what the positive and negitive impacts are of it. I know its not that big of a deal, but my first workout consists of my main lifts, then my second one is focused more on flexibility and knee strength, as i am having surgery, so it really isn’t that taxing on my body. just wanted to get your opinion on both of those
Bro if it were up to me, my athletes would come in 3-4 different times/day. If it was my baseball guys, I would have them come in to hit/pitch first thing in the morning while they were fresh so their skill isn’t watered down. I would be responsible for monitoring every aspect of their skill work, pitch count, velo, swings, weight of ball/bat, the whole nine.
Main Day Schedule-
Training Session 1: Skill Work
Food & Rest
Training Session 2: Warmup – Speed/Power Work
Contrast Shower/Tub Recovery Session
Training Session 3: Weight Work
Compression & Sleep
By the way… David does more than this each day! Ask him about his training, you’ll be stunned to hear what he does!
By doing things this way it allows you to properly recover form each session and give the desired effort for the main areas without losing focus of the key goal; getting better at your sport!
As for spin class… grow a set of balls breh
