Our strength training portion of the strength & conditioning programs offers the opportunity for players to build overall body strength to enhance their playing ability. It's extremely important to understand that the strength training portion of the program is not designed to get players into a gym and lifting the heaviest weights they can. Instead through a combination of fundamental Core and Calisthenics exercises, you will increase your strength foundation. Once the foundation has been built, if you do wish to regularly attend a gym environment you'll have a solid base, to begin with.
Phase 1 - Bronze
Phase 2 - Silver
Phase 3 - Gold
It's very important to execute every exercise and every rep with as close to perfect form as possible. Any additional help needed, don't hesitate to speak to the coaches.
A few notes to understand:
- Each exercise is completed 3 times, to failure on every attempt.
- You rest only for 30 seconds between every set and then 2 minutes between every exercise.
- Squats and calf raises are held for 3/5/7 seconds.
- In your logbook, you record the total repetitions completed for all 3 sets combined.
