On the Off-Season

Well the 2012 Games season is officially over, and as some of us head into the off-season this is a great time to get refreshed and find time to focus on a few other things.

One important habit to start or maintain is to do little diagnostics checks regularly, because if you can't measure it, you can't improve it. In addition to physical training, an important part of athletic performance and fitness is attributed to the physiological state and response of your body. In the upcoming weeks, I'm going to show you behind the scenes of how I get a peek under the hood into my biometrics with help from my friends at from WellnessFX. We are about to geek out!

Another thing to keep in mind is invest in the time to practice and learn new skills. Do something awkward, get uncomfortable, and make your body adapt. You will be amazed at how quickly you're able to pick up new skills and how quickly you will be come efficient the more you practice skill.

On that note, here's a skill that we've had a ton of requests for - get this one under your belt for the 2013 Games!
