Off-Season Activities

Hopefully, you're not lying on the couch this off-season.

The off-season is a great time to recover and focus on new activities. This post from Gale Vennare on makes complete sense of key areas of focus for the off-season.
I mentioned "not laying on the couch".  Not a bad idea to consider some couch time, particularly if you had a rigorous event season.  Take care of your body and let it heal during the off-season.

During the off-season, strength training is fabulous.  You also need to maintain your balance.  Keep activities up to a point where you are not breaking yourself down, but you are maintaining the edge you developed in-season.

Remember to consider your diet.  With not being as active as you might be during the warmer months, athletes need to be more considerate of what they consume.
