The Off Season, Why is it important?

What do you use the off season for? When I think of off season, I think about recovery, rebalance and rebuilding.  Unfortunately a lot young athletes don't think this way as we see athletes competing in the same sports year around and even becoming specialist in sports before building a solid base of athleticism.  This often leads to burn out and injuries for the athlete.  I want to share a article from a great sports performance coach by the name of Lee Taft as he speaks about the importance of the off season for athletes.  Enjoy.

Dynamic Warm up for Sports Performance and Training

A dynamic warm up is key to enhancing performance and reduction of injuries.  Some of the key assests of a dynamic warm up is that it increases core body temperture, joint mobility, muscle elasticity and mentally prepares the athlete(s) for competition or training.  What I intend to do is share what type of warm up and pre-habiliation exercises I have my athletes peform before their workouts.  It will be broken into two part series of videos.  Before starting your dynamic warm up perform a series of short distance runs or jump and jacks as it makes a better transition in the part one of the warm up.
