The Cross Training Effect

The Cross Training Effect

Cross training is a highly effective technique used to improve specific aspects of physical performance in athletes at both amateur and professional levels. The type of cross training chosen for the particular athlete, caters to the goals need to be met for their sport. For instance, a basketball player cross trains with swimming laps to build stamina, so once on the court, he or she can last ninety plus minutes with ease. Do athletes that cross train perform better than those who do not? Yes. From The Active Times, […] “all athletes should be cross-training.”

What type of cross training is right for you?

There are two different forms of cross training;
1. Cardio based
2. Weight-training based

Whether your sport is soccer, football, baseball, basketball, volleyball, golf, tennis, ballet, etc, you must pin point the area of weakness that needs improvement. This might be a drill that needs improvement, or a center of gravity issue with your abdominals to improve a swing.
