12 Weeks to Peak

Did you know it takes 12 weeks for your body to fully acclimate to a particular training base?  Another way of saying that is, you will never reach your peak performance until you’ve been at it for at least 12 weeks.

This is a key concept to understand when training for a particular sport season.  Pre-training is critical if you want to reach peak performance early in the season.  Cross-Country is typically where you see this error.  Since cross-country season begins right after school begins, training must begin early summer; not three weeks before the season.

With a little bit of  thinking ahead and discipline, you can reach your peak performance when it counts!
