Programming of all of their training helped lead them to their best results in 7 years.
Senior Women 6 week pre-season training Kettlebell conditioning:
Incremental progressive overload geared to the individuals in the context of the group, and doubling up the kettelbells, I designed and delivered a bespoke program for the rower’s needs, utilising variety and quality general training, to provide a fun and challenging pre season block. The rower’s movement qualities increased, as did stability, mobility, strength, and power.
Western Gaels Gaelic Football team.
6 weeks pre-season at BGS sports centre utilising the gym exclusively, for a bespoke programmed block. Following some analysis of the sport and communications with the captain about the range of level of the players in the teams, we embarked on increasing robustness and quality of single arm single leg movement as well as bilateral jumping and landing force absorption. The men’s and women’s footballers improved key movement qualities and stability. Testing within training and progressive overload showed increased strength. We were able to add power along the way and find a great balance to achieving a good cardio-vascular conditioning aspect from it, and team-spirited motivation to work hard!
“Everyone has said great things about your training, it was a good start to the season!” – Brianna O’Malley, Club Captain
