Mindset Principle: Dedicated
Dedication (noun): A devoting or setting aside for a particular purpose; self-sacrificing loyalty.
To be dedicated to something means to commit yourself to and for that purpose. It is an act of binding yourself to a course or action — Find your WHY!
Nutrition Principle: Nutrient Density
Nutrient Density is essentially getting the most nutrients for the fewest amount of calories. You want to aim to get the biggest “bang for your buck,” if you will. Nutrient dense foods give you concentrated amounts of valuable nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, fiber, etc.
Physical Principle: Dynamic Correspondence
Another way to describe Dynamic Correspondence is the Transfer Effect – how to transfer what an athlete is doing in training to their sport performance. One way we implement Dynamic Correspondence is being intentional with our programming specificity. The younger our athletes, the less sport-specific we will be. We want to make sure our athletes have the basics down before progressing. As our athletes’ training ages increase, our specificity will begin to increase as well.
