During my days as an Olympic athlete, I learned about how to conserve energy at every possible corner. Your job was to train and recover. Compete and recover. And then repeat the whole process. With that in mind, there are times when you can take simple steps to minimize or outright eliminate the strain, allowing your body to be able to focus on repair or to focus on the task at hand with more confidence. In today’s video, we’re going to show the Arizona State Women’s goalie who takes a shot off the inside of the leg. (The ball went in.) But it wasn’t the goal that bothered me…it was the reaction to getting stung and why it’s not necessary. These are little things that make a MASSIVE difference. Little hinges swing BIG doors.
