What do amateur Athletes forget when comparing themselves to Elite Athletes?
It’s a professionals athlete job to focus purely on their sporting performance. They have access to:-
Regular treatment – To address problematic areas via sports injury treatment and also with a preventative aim
Strength and conditioning – Working on weaknesses, preventing injury
Nutrition – Providing their bodies with the building blocks to repair quickly and efficiently
Adequate sleep – Studies have shown that good sleep is essential for optimal health and healing
Body aware – Noticing subtle changes in their gait / alignment and addressing them
In comparison the amateur athlete has all these added stresses on their body:-
A quick hours blast in the gym which one week may be regular , then another non-existent
Often a non-existent stretching and strengthening regime
8-12+ hours sitting at a desk or multiple hours lifting awkward items in more manual jobs
Amateurs usually wait until they are in severe pain before consulting a healthcare professional
