Be better: Training Tips from Sanford POWER and Matt Cullen
Pro hockey player Matt Cullen and Sanford POWER are teaming up to offer ongoing insight and education into athletic performance over a variety of topics:
WHAT ARE 2-3 FACTORS THAT HAVE HELPED YOU STAY HEALTHY AND INSPIRED TO COMPETE FOR SO LONG?
“Commitment to training not only hard, but also intelligently. I think it’s really important that you adapt your training as you grow and get older, and also that you adapt according to what you need. Each season provides you with feedback on areas that you can improve upon personally. I think it’s extremely important to constantly be upgrading and improving your training methods.
Also, I’m a huge believer in the importance of good nutrition. There are a lot of tools to help guide you in formulating the right nutritional plan. It’s also important to be cognizant of your own specific individual dietary requirements based on different food sensitivity/allergy tests that are available now. Clean eating is a must for any athlete.”
Proper nutrition, hydration, recommended amount of sleep, recovery methods and a sound training plan are all factors that can help athletes optimize their training, performance and recovery.
