Podcast (38 Minutes) AFL is such an incredibly demanding sport, athletes are required to be fit, strong, flexible, able to tackle, be tackled, sprint, change direction and have incredible skills and tactical knowledge.
With so many factors to consider in training, Durham and Jacob will spend the next two episodes discussing the training demands for Aussie Rules. In this part 1 they focus in on common injuries, how to prevent them and what to do if you do suffer an injury.
The problem of lost gains
Every year around Australia sports coaches put in a mountain of work getting their athletes into peak condition. Skill work, team strategy, stretching, running, strength training, extra fitness sessions, even monitoring and tracking load.
These days coaches from the professional to the amateur and junior level are leaving no stone unturned to get the edge on the competition.
There is just one problem. The Christmas break!
