What role does strength training play in sport?

by | Nov 2, 2022

Training twice a week with the team might get you by, but it certainly isn’t optimum for fulfilling your potential!
Following a specific strength training program alongside your sport will not only help improve on pitch performance, but will help minimise the risk of injury, especially those common hamstring injuries that a lot of team sport players suffer from with all the short sprints and quick changes of direction!
With the correct strength program, you will build the strength, resilience and endurance your muscles require to cope with on pitch demands.
If you progressively overload these muscles, you will notably make them stronger and greatly reduce the chance of injuring the muscle. However, going into the gym one week and training legs with a horrific session and then not training them for another 2-3 weeks will not result in the same outcome. If you arenโ€™t tracking your weights, sets, reps and time under tension, you are going to struggle to get these same results ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ
We currently have limited availability for small group training throughout the week, but will try to accommodate those who are interested. These sessions are ran with a maximum of 5 others in the gym or outdoor training area at the same time, these sessions ensure everyone is pushing towards their own individual goals in a very motivating environment.
What’s included in this type of session…
