endless hours dribbling a soccer ball isn’t the only way to guarantee a
spot on the squad. Pro trainer and lifelong athlete Jon Gallo is
spilling the ways to up the ante before tryouts. He also says to
remember the five S’s: speed, strength, stamina, skill and spirit.
Jog it out
“For all sports, the off-season is the time to build speed, agility and
strength. Since most sports have running as a standard requirement, you
should run at least one to two days a week,” he reveals.
Hop on the bike (or in the pool)
“To help build muscle, I really recommend indoor cycling and swimming.
They’re easy on the body, but they build speed, strength and endurance.
Both of these activities allow an athlete to incorporate resistance
training into their regimen without overdoing it,” Jon says.
Get your yoga on
“To avoid over-training, soreness and injury, you should incorporate
flexibility training after every workout session,” he spills. We’re
hitting the mat now!
