There is a saying - "Athletes are Born. They are not Made". Most of the time it is true but not for all the cases. Some of the athletes are really made with hard work and are not just born.
To become an athlete, three things are important...
Nutrition & Diet
All the three are equally important!
When we speak about Training, there are different aspects which need equal importance to each, which are strength, power, endurance & skill. To become the best athlete, he should undergo skill training, speed training, power training and endurance training. At Zen Sports & Fitness, we provide training to improve athlete stamina under the guidance of Master Fitness Trainer Sensei Dr. M.G. Prasad
It is very necessary to give equal importance to each of the above training. For e.g., if the athlete has very good skills and low in power, speed and endurance, he cannot perform well. And vice versa. Similarly, Diet & Rest also plays a very important role in performance.
To improve the stamina, the athlete should workout on both strength and endurance. The Strength-Endurance will be different for each game. Because every game requires different kind strength & skill.
