3 fun ways to cross-train before tryouts


 
Spending 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. Hurrah!
 
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!
