Diet and proper nutrition are an extremely important pillar in the lifestyle of anyone, from an elite athlete to weekend warrior to sedentary individual. Nutrition can have a major impact on both mental and physical performance in all realms. With the appearance of an endless list of new diet options (Keto, Intermittent Fasting, FODMAP, Paleo, etc), how do we strip away the fluff to uncover the most basic, generalized level of healthy eating? To build off the previous post, Nutrition 101, there are three basic guidelines that that can help to further simplify healthy nutrition.

Chronological vs. Biological Age

A young athlete's chronological age (years since birth) and biological age (stage of physical maturity) may not always be consistent with one another. Emerging research leads us to believe that 'age' may just be a number when determining the right level for athletes to play.

This article explores the role of physical development status in the team selection process.

The increased emphasis on year-round sport-specific training for athletic success has developed many unique training methods in the world of strength and conditioning. Paired with how easy it is to compare an athlete to those around the world, the prevalence of the single-sport athlete is starting to greatly outnumber the multi-sport athlete. On the trend of sport-specificity, why work on running mechanics, track or uni-planar work with athletes other than what they do in their sport? There are two main explanations for this.

Whether it be for memory consolidation, creative process development, or immune function, sleep is a cornerstone for all things health, mental performance and lifespan in humans. Sleep has also been well researched in the sports realm, with strong links being made between sleep, performance and injury prevention. Research has shown that athletes who sleep less than six hours/night see a decline in: strength, power, time to exhaustion, aerobic output and fatigue resistance. In addition, a 2016 study involving NBA players showed that players who slept 8+ hours/night had a 30% increase in points per minute and a 40% decrease in turnovers, compared to their sleepy counterparts who slept less than 8 hours/night. Then there is injury prevention.  Research has shown that young athletes who regularly sleep 6 hours or less/night have a 35% greater risk of injury than their counterparts who sleep 8+ hours/night. 
So, you know that sleep is important, but how do you make it better?
