They’re Waiting For Next!

After a year of waiting, the world’s summer athletes gather in Tokyo this month for the biggest sporting event on the planet. But for those of us who can’t get enough of a sports fix, the Winter Games are just a few months away in Beijing.

We spoke with some of the best on ice and snow, getting their takes on training, the upcoming February Games and where they’ll be watching their USA teammates over the next couple of weeks.

Josh Williamson – Bobsled

What are you doing to prepare for February’s games?

I am currently training full time at the Olympic and Paralympic Training Center in Lake Placid, New York. I train six days a week doing any and everything I can to push bobsleds faster this coming season. My usual training involves a lot of sprinting, weightlifting, plyometrics and of course pushing.

Where will you be cheering on your fellow summer athletes?

I will be cheering on my USA teammates from the training center here in Lake Placid. Whenever I’m not training I will be glued to the TV cheering on America’s athletes fighting for medals in Tokyo. It’s been so exciting already seeing all the U.S. team trials going on for different sports. 

Toby Miller – Snowboarding

What are you doing to prepare for this huge season culminating in Beijing?

With just eight months to go, I have been putting a lot of focus on dry-land training in between my snow training. I’m at the gym 3-4 hours a day, five days a week, working with my team to get my body prepared for the upcoming season. 

My off-season typically consists of three, three-week on-snow training camps in May, July and October. My goal is to capitalize on those camps, then once those are done, I’ll get right back into my gym routine. 

Where will you be cheering on your fellow American athletes this summer? 

I will be back in the gym after wrapping up an on-snow training camp in Mt Hood, Oregon. With the TVs blasting, I’ll be cheering on my fellow American athletes during all my workouts. There is nothing more motivating than watching my countrymen and women compete while getting prepared to do the very same thing just a few months after. 

Kali Flanagan – Ice Hockey

What are you doing to prepare for February’s games?

Leading up to the Games I’m doing everything I can to get myself as prepared as possible- mentally and physically- to make my second U.S. team.

Part of that preparation includes training on ice- skating and working on different skills, training in the gym and getting stronger, working on mental skills, getting eight hours of sleep every night, and being super diligent with my nutrition and recovery.  

Nutrition and recovery are two key elements that are often overlooked and I make sure to use the best methods and products (like Six Star Pro Nutrition) to maximize my performance.

Where will you be cheering on your fellow summer athletes?

I’ll be cheering on my fellow USA athletes from home in New Hampshire this summer. I’m so excited to watch the Games and I can’t wait to see the success that Americans will have in Japan

Vincent Zhou – Figure Skating

What are you doing to prepare for February’s Games?

Perfecting my craft by being fully committed to training my mind and body every minute I’m in the rink or the gym as well as tuning my daily routine outside of the rink to maximize my performance during training.

Where will you be cheering on your fellow summer athletes?

From home where I train, Colorado Springs, “Olympic City USA!”

Sylvia Hoffman – Bobsled

What are you doing to prepare for February’s Games?

To make sure that I am in the best shape possible for this upcoming winter season, I am taking care of my mental & physical health. I am currently doing lots of push training on ice to prepare for the first steps to qualifying for the 2022 Games, which are the upcoming National Push Championships.

Where will you be cheering on your fellow summer athletes?

I will be proudly cheering for my fellow summer athletes during my stay here at the Olympic and Paralympic Training Center in Lake Placid, NY. While they are representing America abroad, I will be looking to defend my spot on the U.S. Championships podium. 

Lindsey Jacobellis – Snowboardcross

What are you doing to prepare for February’s games?

I am currently in a strength/cardio building phase in my workouts and that block will last about another six-weeks. Then I will transition into strength and plyos. This will give me the best build up for February so I can be peaking in performance for the winter season. At home I make sure that I am getting the best sleep I can while maintaining a healthy diet. As a certified trainer, I am able to plan and implement my own workouts and meals to fit what phase of training I am in.

Where will you be cheering on your fellow summer athletes?

Right now I will be at home, but if we get a call and there is snow somewhere and a course to train on, I will be there.  

With the way the world is right now, everything with travel is very last minute. So, for now I will be in Southern California watching the Games and rooting on my fellow USA summer athletes.

Amanda Kessel – Ice Hockey

What are you doing to prepare for February’s games?

Currently I am training for the World Championships and the 2022 games. The World Championships will take place in Calgary, Alberta starting on August 20th. 

I am pouring everything I have into training for the 2022  Games knowing these opportunities are few and far between. I am looking to add to my 2014 silver medal and gold from 2018.

My daily schedule usually consists of waking up, having a large breakfast, cup of coffee, my Pre-Workout Explosion powder (my favorite is (Fruit Punch), and mentally preparing for my training day. 

Sample Day:

8:00 am- Wake up and eat breakfast and drink my pre-workout powder
9:30-11:30- Physical therapy and Lift
12:00-12:30 Lunch and Whey Protein Plus smoothie
12:30-2:00: Travel to the rink 
2:00-4:30- Skate. Conditioning and skills training on-ice. I have a skills coach that I work with everyday and there is never enough that I can work on. I’m always fine tuning my game and trying to improve every area.
4:30-5:00- Eat some type of fruit and have my Clean Protein Shake
5:00- 7:00- Travel Home
7:30- Dinner
9:00- Hangout, Foam roll, Stretch, etc
11:00- Sleep

Above is a typical training day for me. With how busy and active I am, nutrition and rest are key for me to stay healthy. Six Star has become a huge piece of my training as it is vital for me to have energy and recover.

Where will you be cheering on your fellow summer athletes?

I will be living and training in NYC for the summer so I’ll be cheering on my fellow USA summer athletes from here. Go USA!

Gus Schumacher – Skiing 

What are you doing to prepare for February’s games?

Right now, I’m training up to six hours a day to build fitness for the season. Most of this time is spent rollerskiing, but is supported heavily by strength work, running, and mountain biking. I’m also eating and sleeping a lot!

Where will you be cheering on your fellow summer athletes?

I’ll be cheering on the USA athletes from my hometown of Anchorage, Alaska. Only two hours away from Seward, where Lydia Jacoby, a 17-year-old American swimmer is from!
