Be an MVP when ya hit the field next year
Craft a special workout plan
Each sport uses different muscles in our bod, so be sure your summer workout is targeting the muscles that are specific to your sport. If you’re a soccer player, you might want to do more leg workouts to get better at kicking. If you love to play softball, try doing some workouts for your arms. But in any case, don’t forget to do some extra cardio. Almost every sport requires excellent stamina.
Practice, practice, practice
You can’t improve without practice. Have a girls’ day and gather some of your gals to head up to the local rec center. Ask them for advice on how to improve your weaknesses. Chances are, they’ll need your help in some aspects too. Whenever ya get free time, head out in the backyard and practice there, too. The more you practice, the better you’ll get!
Make goals for yourself
You have to want to get better in order to actually get better. Set goals that you want to achieve by the end of the summer, and vow to reach them. You’ll have to be dedicated to getting enough sleep, eating healthy and staying on top of your workout routine.
Don’t be afraid of criticism
If you ask a friend or coach for help, don’t get upset when they correct you. Although it’s sometimes tough to hear what you are doing wrong, they are only trying to help. Remember that you’re not the only player the needs improvement. Everyone on the team could develop their skills in some way.
Study other athletes
Use athletes that are great at your sport for inspiration. Look up their workouts and techniques to include some new elements into your training. Using them as a role model will help you when you’re trying to achieve your goals.
Work on other aspects besides your sport
