Following up from our previous post this is Introduction - Part 2 of our Strength & Conditioning for GAA Athletes blog series to help you find your strengths and weaknesses and set off-season training goals.
In this blog, I write about the differences between the Lunge, Pick-up, how the Dynamic System Theory relates to your overall sports performance and what strength & conditioning myths need to be forgotten so we can develop athletes that are faster, more agile and less likely to get injured.
Over the next few weeks I am going to do a series of posts on Off-Season Training for Gaelic Footballers, Hurlers and Camogie players. This is largely going to be the same for any field sports athlete really, but most other sports are winter sports and are in-season. My predominant experience is in GAA and have been coaching for 22 years in some capacity. I believe I have learned a lot about integration and where Physical Preparation sits for sports performance.
