I had a conversation the other day with a AAA/AA minor league player that I coach and consult with, and we were talking about the idea of peaking too soon. He asked the question…what I thought it meant to peak too soon? How he could avoid peaking too soon because it’s January and he said he’s feeling better than he’s ever felt in his career. It can be confusing to process that especially if you’re doing well and you’re locked in and it’s January? Do you hold back? How do you handle it?
It all comes down to perspective and I’ve made an audio file to help answer this question.
