A kid will go to any length, sacrifice everything, and put in a countless hours trying to be the best.
Wait… A kid would never do that.
Parents will go to any length, sacrifice everything, and put in countless hours trying to get their kid to be the best.
That’s more truthful.
Early sport specialization has climbed to the forefront of youth athletic development. Is specializing at a young age helping a kid develop to their highest potential? Almost always, the answer is no. If it’s detrimental to the development of a young athlete, then why is it becoming more prevalent?
With the New Year often comes self-reflection. What did I do last year? What did I accomplish? And what do I want to do now? After this reflection and pondering the New Year, many will decide that this is going to be the year to get in shape.
Then you pause and think to yourself: I started a workout plan last year and then stopped, and I was so dialed in to my diet for a month and then fell off.
These things are very common. Life gets crazy. You have work, family, friends, a social life, school, and maybe even a partner and kids. Instead of going back to the same old routine you struggled to maintain last year, consider reflecting on why you struggled to reach your goals last year and discover what you need to change in order to set yourself up for a healthy and consistent 2017.
