Train Like a Pro

Get comfortable with being uncomfortable. 776BC co-founder and Beijing Silver Medalist Cameron McKenzie-McHarg shares his exclusive training tips to help you train like a pro.

Consistency is key. It's a cliche because it's true. It's not about being brilliant one day on the training track. It's about incremental improvements every day, every week, every month.

Have at least two sessions a week you accurately measure your performance. This is like your lie detector test. It's numbers based, not about how you 'feel' (although you should also record this). track this on a chart, it will tell you a very simple story.

Find a training partner that will push you. For one you have a commitment to turn up, and two they should keep you honest. It's also more enjoyable to have a coffee afterwards with someone then by yourself.

Visualise your winning performance on the training track. When they say performing on the ultimate stage is all in your head, this is true. So train your head, get comfortable with mentally creating the pressure, stress, noise and stepping up to perform.

Worlds best (or personal best) takes time. Have a plan, write it down and commit to it. Cross off each session, mark it out of 10. Don't try and win on day 1, make sure you win at the end.
