Contrary to popular belief, going at it hammer and tongue is not how you improve your performance.
It’s actually in the recovery where you grow/ improve.
So if you’ve ever heard the phrase ‘you’re only as good as your recovery’ it’s one that holds water!
Let me explain.
You’ll have as baseline performance level. And when you introduce physical or mental stressors this performance level drops.
Good recovery, which might include:
getting enough energy (calories) for physiological needs;
getting enough macronutrients and micronutrients;
proper hydration and electrolyte balance; nutrient timing for clients who need it (e.g., elite athletes);
These are the things that will see you recover to a performance level that surpasses where you were before the stressor.
Without good recovery you’ll experience chronic stress. And each time you subject yourself to stressors your performance level goes down.
Eventually you’ll hit a point where you’ll burn out.
You want to ensure that doesn’t happen! And that you are taking the right steps for your performance to grow and grow.
Pushing yourself and recovering better each time. So you are only experience acute stress (necessary for improvement).
Now, what if i told you that you don’t need more time to put this in place.
What if I told you that you could actually see this happen by doing less?!
You don’t need more exercise, to diet harder, to have perfect sleep or stress management routines.
You only need to improve what you are currently doing with those things!
Because the recipes you’re currently using aren’t getting you the results your after.
Which is why performance has begun to plateau. Energy levels have dropped and stress is running high.
But with the right plan and accountability your lifestyle routine can be optimisd. And take your output to a level you never thought possible.
Improved habits that will see you become:
At the top of your game!
