The Day Before

This is the day before the first game in Kansas City so I am going to make a few recommendations on how to best prepare. If this is not the day before a game for you the workout will still apply not to mention that it will be good to have for future reference. Lets get a few things out of the way before we go any further. First off, the idea that you should not workout the day before, and in some cases the day of the game, is ridiculous. There is not an athletic organization that I am aware of with any prevalence that does not workout all the way up to the game day. Your body will respond much better in a game situation if it is given no time to get out of the habits you have formed with practice and workouts. Secondly, this is not the time to overload yourself. Game prep is not the same as prepping for a college mid-term. You cannot cram it all in now and expect to be at your peak tomorrow. That said here is your workout for today. Tomorrow we will cover a solid game day ritual that should help ensure your success.

5 min warm up
3x 25 meters karaoke step
3x 25 meters high knees
3x 10 pushups
3x 10 overhead presses
3x 10 bent flys
2x 30 sec. V sit
2x 25 V sit twists
5 min cool down

Notes:All exercise should be at about 65-70%, Tempo is still 4-2-1, 45 sec rest between sets.
Get a really good stretch and plenty of sleep. Eating healthy today will help tomorrow, no carb loading!
