Pierce Johnson: Staying Healthy, Staying Home

What was your main athletic focus prior to COVID-19 actions?

My Focus prior to the COVID-19 actions was getting prepared for a successful offseason. While this past year had its highlights, it ended much sooner than I had planned and left a bitter feeling in my stomach. I do not want to leave anything on the table going into my final season at the University of Windsor.

Understand you may not have a definitive competition schedule at the moment, how are you approaching your training now?

Training is very different now without access to gyms and I can't say I wasn't concerned about my training at the start of this.  However, the trainer for my team has given me an amazing program that is allowing me to continue training without falling behind on my offseason plan.

What positives, if any, can you take from our situation with respect to your training and being best prepared for a return to competition?

One positive I am taking away from this is that is forcing myself to rest and recover. While I do take recovery very seriously, I often push myself to get back into the gym or on the court sometimes too quickly which sometimes leads to some injuries. This time is allowing myself to improve on deficiencies I have which will allow me to train at a higher level when things get back to normal.

How has your training benefitted your mental state as we Canadians maintain social distancing?

This break has definitely benefited my mental state. It has almost felt like a reset button has been hit and I’m more focused and mentally prepared for training once things get back to normal.

Sounds like you are using time wisely and hitting it old school with your crafty bench.  Thanks for sharing Pierce.
