High School sports are extremely competitive. If you don’t work hard at your skills then someone that’s working harder will earn your position. There are athletes that seem to be born with a God-given talent that lets them coast through drills but still outperform everyone on the field. Let’s be real though, 95% of athletes on the field don’t have that God-given talent and have to work hard while struggling from play to play. There’s an awesome quote - “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard” – and it’s certainly true. If you put in the right work, your natural talent will shine through and you’ll become the best player on the field. But how can you unlock your incredible talent?
There’s three qualities that ring true across sports… The biggest, fastest, strongest person wins. Period. You can argue that strategy can win, but strategy doesn't matter if players who aren’t big, fast, and strong hold down the team. Fast (speed and agility) is probably the most important quality in high school sports. And to get faster, you must get stronger. You’ve probably picked up that the strong athletes tend to be fast and big, so it should be no surprise that you need to emphasize getting stronger first and foremost. Strength will take your talent to the next level.
You need to be on a specific training plan to get you from where you are now to the brute of an athlete you plan to become. At The Rack, we regularly help our athletes build strength, speed, and agility as fast as possible. We challenge athletes in ways that will maximize their performance on the field, reduce the risk of injury to keep them in the game longer, and build their confidence so they can rule the field. You will learn how to conquer, you will build strength, and you will become talented. Whether you’re going through weight training at school or have never lifted a weight before, we can make sure that you’re maximizing your ability in every step of the game.
