6 Tips from a College Athlete to Crush a Hectic Schedule. by Emma Sklarin August 22, 2017. In movies and on TV, college athletes always look like they have it together. Brilliant, athletic, social and somehow always wearing perfectly coordinated uniforms, these Hollywood heroes seem to.

This tip is not meant to be negative — just realistic. The truth is that fewer than 5% of college level student-athletes go on to compete in the pros after graduation. While you should go for your dreams full out, it’s wise to have a backup plan. Time Management Tips for Student-Athletes. Posted: 09-06-2011 | Categories: Parents & Students Student-athletes are busy people.

A typical day usually starts with a glass of OJ then it’s off to school from sun up to sun down, then practice, then homework, squeeze in dinner, a little American Idol, studying for that biology quiz, walk the dog, shower (if there’s time), and bed time. It’s no secret that student-athletes maintain hectic, borderline masochistic schedules during the school year. It’s all part of the game. Now, however, with schools collecting money off the backs of their students’ play and student-athletes facing multimillion-dollar career decisions via the NFL, NBA and MLB drafts, there’s more riding.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is undeniably one of the busiest men in Hollywood, but he makes time to crush a workout no matter how hectic his schedule gets. The hulking wrestler-turned-actor is currently filming for Jungle Cruise, one of several big-budget flicks he’s got in the works at the moment. Despite shooting nights all week and essentially becoming nocturnal, Johnson.

HEAD: The life of a student athlete WEB BLURB: Freshman soccer player Katherine Highstead gives us an in-depth look into a day in her life as a college student athlete: academics, athletics, social life, sleep and personal time. By Chris Reed It is 7 o’clock in the evening, and Katherine Highstead, women’s soccer player, bolts out of the. Wanting to continue to play and grow in the sport during college, I chose to attend Pepperdine in order to work with Per Nilsson, the women’s tennis coach and the best college coach in the nation, in my opinion.

Day in the Life. My day usually starts around 6:30 AM. Nicole Ankney.

Military Mom If there’s a will, there’s a way.Through earning a college degree while working a full-time job in the military and being a single mother, I learned anything is possible.

At the very least, during the first week of classes, be sure to introduce yourself and be open with them about your demanding schedule as a student-athlete. Better yet, as opposed to approaching them during the hectic moments before or after class, try to attend their office hours early in the semester so you can have a conversation. “One of the biggest mistakes athletes make is heading out for a run in the morning without eating anything first,” says Dan Benardot, PhD, RD, director of the Laboratory for Elite Athlete Performance at Georgia State University in Atlanta, who works with Olympic distance runners (10,000m and up) and oversees the nutrition program for U.S.

  • can someone tell me what the 3:10 minute wheel is for? it looks like for basic stretching but if it were for basic stretching something would not be necessary… and I have already seen that many athletes in different disciplines use it.

  • What do you think would be a decent 5k time that some smaller D1 colleges might show interest? I ran a 17:43 in the fall and should be in the 16’s this year

  • Wow I’m so impressed by how much you have going on and how you manage it all! I’m in my final year of uni too and this video has motivated me to look into my time management more..

  • Seems kinda lazy and chill day to be honest. Idk for how long he has to study but the time spend in school is non existent and working out isnt much either

  • Great video Andrea! I don’t know if Jake will be responding to these comments or not (or if you just happen to know the answer to this question) but how do you deal with an irregular game schedule (and sometimes irregular practice schedule) when trying to get clinical experience, shadowing, volunteering, research, etc. when you also are gone for three-four day weekends?! I am interested in playing a sport in college but don’t know how I could get research opportunities or do anything pre med related things with no free time on the weekends and not much time during the week with practices and all.

  • Hi Andrea! I am Manuel from Mexico, I’m already an engineer but was wondering how difficult is to study medicine and having a part time job, do you know someone in your country (friends) in this situation?

  • Thanks for making this video, it was super helpful. I’m applying to schools right now and am hoping to run at the next level, either on a D1 club team or D3 varsity. I ran a 17:14 in cross country this fall after running 20:08 two years ago when I started running, and think that I can keep up that improvement in college. I’ve been talking with coaches and was invited to come stay overnight, so pretty much all of these tips were applicable to me right now. I’m glad I watched this video because I feel more confident about who to take on this whole new level of picking a school.

  • Bro this man just like London hacks
    But the us version like were he does daily vlogs and videos of what the topic is on the video and does the video very perfect

  • I’m tryna become a d1 running back that’s the only reason I’m watching this. I wake up at 7 am, go to the park, train till 10 am, I go back home, eat breakfast. Chill for a while. At 1 am I go back to the park, train and come back at 4, chill for a while. From 5-7 I just stretch my legs n shit. And then we’re chillin until tommorrow

  • Don’t they have nutritionists working with athletic teams? What kind of diet is that…sugary cereal and take out for lunch? Where are the fruits, vegetables, fiber, and liquids –

  • aye man I wanna be healthy bro. Basically my family feeds me the same food like almost all da time, but sense you are my new fav YouTuber, I support you vids and you man. Your my dream nowadays/ now on. Have a great and a wonderful day. Take care!:)

  • Appreciate you producing this video and sharing your experience. I teach Well-Being to high school students and this will be a video that I use when discussing academic/extra-curricular stress. The thing that resonated with me most and that I want my students to embrace is what your high school coach told you to consider when choosing a college; those two things not only apply to student athletes but all students. So many students are so caught up in the idea that they have to go to your Stanfords, Harvards, etc., in order to be successful AND to feel that they have value. What possibly ends up being the case as you pointed out is they end up in an environment that does not support who they are as an individual and they end up struggling emotionally as a result.

    So, thanks to you, your coaches, your parents, your friends and teammates, for instilling within you and supporting solid values and principles that you have now shared with my students and the world. Enjoy your journey.

  • What about walk ons? Do coaches treat them differently than members already on the team and do they make the team often? (I’m a senior in high school right now)

  • Thanks for getting him to expand at least bit on the specialty! Your parting questions were great! Perhaps you could expand on them in a subsequent interview. In any case this was lovely:)

  • Hey Zach, I’m a Virginia 5A runner like you were but at Maury and was wondering if you have any cross country tips. My current Pr’s are 2:14 800 and 11:50 3200 19:35 5k on Saturday also what event do you think I’m best at based off my PR’s ( im a sophomore ) thanks

  • I’m a junior but I am just only starting running this year because I only just now realized how much I like running, I’m in my very first cross country season and so far my best 5k is 23:23, do you think I could have potential to get good enough before I graduate in 2020?

  • one thing that would make me mad………………………………HOMEWORK BRUH smhhhh everything else low key cool and i aint a football person im more of a basketball:V

  • Im studying bio-chem in college (going into my sophomore year), and I’m a swimmer! I’ve been swimming my whole life… its definitely a challenge to be pre-med and be such a dedicated athlete!. but I love it, and I’ve been told it looks great on the resume 😉 great vid! you’re such an inspiration! I’ve been following you for a while now! I love your posts.

  • By far the most helpful recruitment video for running!! Thank you so much for this and if you have any other tips please post another video:)
