[tubepress video=”r6jlbuVOKCU”] Toughness. Attitude. Character. Discipline. All of these attributes are easy to see on championship teams. Are you a champion? How do you develop these traits? The answer begins with you! Expect a coach to hold you to a standard. Be willing to be coached. “Coachability” is a term used in pro-day or pre-draft interviews, but it is rarely conveyed to the athlete. Every day you must put in work so that you can reap the rewards of being called a CHAMP. Watch this clip from Allan Johnson at the Strength and Conditioning/Athletic Development Conference to hear the dedication it takes to develop your mental toughness. Prepare your mind, get adequate rest, and improve your nutrition and hydration discipline to make you even more successful this season.
