Today's Comp Tip: Whitney's "Week of" Strategy
There are many ways to prepare for a competition. Here's one way.
- Not the time to try to "catch up" because, realistically, it's too late to make any concerted gains, now. Work on skill and efficiency this week. Think about strategy.
- Go easy on those hands! Prep your palms today for the lickin' they're going to take next Saturday (pumice treatment, straight razor shave, etc.).
- Make a commitment to yourself to sleep 8 hours a night and mobilize daily. Now is the time to rest the body. Just keep the blood flowing, the joints mobile, and the muscles loose.
- Mobilize, mobilize, mobilize.
Sunday: Go hard. Simulate game day with multiple workouts throughout the day. Know what to expect in six days.
Monday: One workout. Mobilize.
Tuesday: Light workout. Super light. Just staying limber, here. Keep the blood flowing through those muscles to flush out lactic acid without damaging any tissue or muscle fibers. Mobilize.
Wednesday: Active rest day (hike, walk, jog, swim). Mobilize.
Thursday: Active rest day (hike, walk, jog, swim). Mobilize.
Friday: Light active rest day (walks are nice) and, you guessed it, mobilize.
Game Day: Give it all you got, girls! Go hard in the paint!
