Monday and Tuesday involve just as much of an in-depth exercise and nutrition routine. Mondays frequently include carb cycling, training, an ice bath, and a body flush. Tuesdays consist of strength training using the lifting-to-failure method in combination with a recovery routine incorporating a hot bath, and a float tank session or yoga.
Regarding Wednesdays, Austin states, “Sometimes we have (it) off, sometimes we train. Either way, it’s a light day, so if my muscles recovered well from Monday and Tuesday, I’ll swim at the YMCA for 30 minutes and/or light bike flush. Sometimes I’ll deadlift or do some heavier lifting to get more strength training in.”
Thursday and Friday often consist of light training, followed by game day on Saturday.
And in addition to these training and diet regimes, Austin also sticks to a consistent sleep schedule, has a set morning routine including mental preparation tactics, and he also generally sticks to a ketogenic diet, only exceeding 25 grams of carbs on his high-intensity training day.
In regards to how Nadovim has impacted his routine and training, Austin says, “I’ve only noticed improvements.”
It’s evident that it takes a combination of commitment, dedication, and self-discipline to achieve success in a given sports field. The Ohio Center for Sport Psychology even include self-motivation, positive mental imagery, and the ability to maintain concentration in their list of the top nine mental skills of successful athletes (4).
Yet, Nadovim and NAD+ are beneficial additions that can take one’s athletic performance and focus to the next level. Sports aren’t only a physical game, but also a mental one.
