On July 8, 2016, a blog shared how golf champion Jordan Spieth usually trains in preparation for his upcoming matches. The details about Spieth’s training parameters were sourced from Jordan’s AMPD Golf Fitness trainer, Damon Goddard.
Goddard went to share the specifics when it comes to how he trains Spieth, sighting a list of what he usually asks of him during training. First, he would ask Jordan to get at least 8 hours of sleep every night with a “2-2.5 hours deep sleep” to be monitored by UA Healthbox. Keeping the balance, Goddard made an emphasis on the importance of wellness since Golf for him is “incredibly mental”. He would give Spieth the time to enjoy and unwind by listening to music, plan some outdoor workout like meditating on a beach, hiking, ocean jumping, and the likes.
As to how he keeps him fit and healthy, Goddard said that constant training with mild tapering is the key. He specifically mentioned circuit-type training, a 30-minute warm-up, and tapering as the usual on-the-go list he usually prepares for Spieth. Part of their overall training also includes honing his movements which would ask Spieth to be workout-ready, to focus more on priming his movements instead of muscles, and to work in both Linear and Lateral movements.
For Spieth’s diet plan, he must consume 140-150 ounces of fluid per day which includes an electrolyte replenisher that Goddard specifically designed for Jordan. Goddard further added that Spieth must eat a lot of “whole, real foods”. His go-to granola diet consists of granola, almonds, pecans, organic honey, unsweetened coconut, virgin coconut oil, ground vanilla beans, cinnamon, and sea salt. For his dinner, his recommended diet includes lamb, asparagus, broccoli, and sweet potato.
