Difference Between Training for Recreation and Training for Performance

In by adminLeave a Comment

This episode gets a bit more philosophical on you! We open it up from our typical elite MMA athlete topics to a more recreational based idea. We tackle the question of “Why do you train and perform at sport?” Typically there are two models of sport in the sociological world: “Pleasure and Participation” or “Power and Performance.” Try saying that 10 times fast! Do you train to enjoy the pursuit of growth and be happy with just participating with peers, or are you trying to dominate and win? Is there room for both approaches in any athlete’s training? This conversation is interesting considering the intersection of Alex and Austin’s sports ideals. We unpack how we think of these models, what are your thoughts? Let us know!
