Do you want to perform well on game day? Make sure you are rested and recovered. A smart athlete tapers their training as the big day approaches. Remember the body is broken down in training. It is rebuilt through rest, good nutrition, and stress management. If you are competing on Sunday, Friday and Saturday should be restful and full of good meals.
