Building the 24-hour athlete: Establishing habits outside the training environment that support wellbeing and performance.
As coaches we may see our athletes in the gym, or on the court , pitch or track for 1-2 hours a day. But what happens in the 23 hours a day they spend away from us? Do their personal habits such as sleep, nutrition, hydration and organisation support or undermine progress? If poor sleep and nutrition can reduce recovery and limit progress, can we systemise habit formation to ensure athletes are building a solid foundation for wellbeing and performance?
