Athletes are now able to do more than was ever thought possible through training methodology and recent innovations. Depending upon where your starting point is, the options to boost your athletic performance can get overwhelming with so many approaches to explore.
To make your program more effective and your goals easier to achieve, these are some techniques to boost your athletic performance without making it too complicated and overwhelming.
1. Measure and Track Your Performance
There is a wide selection of monitoring devices on the market and a lot of different methods to use in tracking your performance. You can invest in some state-of-the-art equipment and technology, or
simply use a pen and paper to jot down notes.
Whichever method you use, it is a great way to push your body further by seeing visually where you’ve gone and where you want to go.
Visually seeing your progress is an excellent motivator by choosing to track your entire workout or a specific activity. The data you collect can be used to set new, small goals, and before you know it, you
will have boosted your performance without even realizing it.
Another advancement in technology is the NIKKI. This ground-breaking new bioenergetic wearable brings the benefits of frequency-enhanced communication to empower the cellular activity within the
body. If you are seeking optimization and accelerated performance, NIKKI is your 24/7 wellness companion on your wrist. This bioenergetic wearable helps your body recover while you sleep and allows you to wake in the morning with renewed energy, less pain, and relief from anxiety and stress.
Delivering issue-based frequencies for varying wellness issues, NIKKI supports cellular repair and restoration over time allowing your body to function at an optimal level and perform at its best.
2. Properly Hydrate Your Body
Properly hydrating your body is a priority whenever you are working out. Your body loses fluid through sweat whether you work out in a cool gym or out on a hot field. When you exercise, heat is produced through your muscles, and this increases your core body temperature. The process of sweating is your body’s way to cool you down.
If you perform a particularly intense workout, you could lose more than forty ounces of water an hour, so keeping water close to you, and drinking it frequently is extremely important. You can become dehydrated quite quickly, without realizing it is happening. Dehydration will cause you to lose consciousness and injure yourself. You also place yourself at risk for heatstroke when you become dehydrated.
3. Switch Up Your Workouts
Functional workouts are the name of the game for many athletes. Dropping weight or sculpting your body is not what enhanced performance is about. Boosting your performance is about your response time, improving your muscle strength, and strengthening your mental prowess. Functional workouts should be a foundation for your workouts, but not the whole picture.
Drills are also an important piece to boosting your performance. Drills will allow your body to experience stimulation and muscle stress in specific ways not reminiscent of a specific event or sport.
So, in addition to functional exercises, switch up your workouts every once in a while. You will not reach your potential by doing the same exercises week after week or day after day.
It does not have to get complicated when you set out to improve your athletic performance. Effective methods can be quite straight-forward and when you implement the above techniques you can experience significant results.
