IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (12-19-16)
"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"
Most student-athletes look at winter break as a good time to get away from the classroom and athletic events and practice. It's good to get away from the everyday grind.
However, I'm reminded of what former Butler University and current Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens once told me about his philosophy when it comes to conditioning and what he expects of his athletes.
He said he believes that regardless of the sport, a dedicated athlete should never be more than 5 days away from being in top condition. So whether it's coming out of a vacation or just a few days off, keep that thought in mind. You should never fall too far behind in your physical conditioning!
