Summer Training

TRAINING NEVER STOPS: Summer training for any of the US Bobsled/Skeleton athletes consist of a lot of self motivation and dedication.  Wether the athlete lives at the OTC or trains in their perspective hometowns, it is vital to keep the gym training and speed training schedule management in line to be ready for the personal and team trials that put the athletes in their positions for the upcoming winter season.

Dallas's schedule consists of daily gym training accompanied by speed training at American Athlete in Lehi, Utah.

DIET:  One of the questions many people ask is "what do you eat?"...

If you are really interested to know what Dallas eats, feel free to email for a full meal plan.  But basically Dallas likes to "EAT & TRAIN". This means he eats a lot.  He is constantly eating high protein meals along with vegetables and some fruits.  He also supplements his meals with extra protein, creatine, glutamine, BCAA's, fish oil, multivitamin and occasionally a pre workout if needed.

HOW FAST DOES THE SLED GO? a bobsled goes down a 1 mile track and reaches up to about 95+mph.  He describes it as the best rush ever or the best roller coaster ride he has ever been on.  After every race or practice run down the mile long ice track, Dallas says he is usually a little dizzy (with a laugh)

IN THE GYM:  While in the gym most of his workouts are, by most people the most dreaded workout- LEG DAY.  "feeling the burn" isn't as easy as it used to be.  Getting sore after the gym is something Dallas strives for so he knows his body is reaching higher levels.  While leg day is his favorite day, he also does full range of functionality movements & cardio and stretching to keep the all over physical condition at its best. Dallas opened a gym called American Athlete in Lehi, Utah. Feel free to stop by and visit and view his training programs.
