Short Career Of Mikko Salo
Mikko Salo typically works out three to five days in a row, then takes a day off. He works out at least twice a day.
“My morning workout can be similar to Olympic training (5x3x clean squat and 5x3x back squat), and after that, I typically perform one met-con, or more if they are brief.
Evenings are when I row or run. “It might be distance or merely interval,” explains Mikko.
Over the course of the year, Mikko trains in a consistent manner. He has neither a “off-season” nor a “in-season.” His words are;
There isn’t an off-season, in my opinion. In terms of strength training, I enjoy concentrating on my areas of weakness. I think you should consistently get 85 to 90 percent of your potential results.
Mikko places a strong premium on nutrition because he trains frequently and needs to eat a lot of high-quality foods. These consist of poultry, beef steak, eggs, Greek yogurt, fruits, veggies, and healthy fats.
Mikko, though, will slightly alter his diet as the Games draw nearer. As he put it, “I ate chicken and salad in the evening after the Games were over.
I had eggs, apples, and coffee for breakfast. I ate energy bars and some bread with chicken and eggs throughout the day. I drank a recovery beverage with carbohydrates, protein, and creatine right after every event. I also consumed a lot of water. –
