Okay this blog is the first in a series that I have no idea will prove popular or not!
Here’s the background: I, like many coaches, write some of my sessions on the whiteboard in the gym. Generally these sessions are the ones where athletes come back from a lay-off and need to build some basic work capacity, transition weeks or de-load periods, or just for those athletes who only come once in a while and aren’t following a set programme.
So the sessions can be pretty hard, quite easy or somewhere in the middle!
Anyway, this first session is a general work capacity session for a couple of tennis players coming back from a long summer of playing lots and lots of tennis. So the focus is to take some of that away and build some general work capacity whilst working on some low intensity jumping and landing mechanics in the box jumps. One player started on the third tri-set, the other player started at the top.
The three exercises are done without breaking unless you need to for water, recovery etc. Just work through progressively.
Give it a go!
By the way if you’re struggling to understand any exercises or need coaching points get across to my YOUTUBE page and watch the videos there.
If this is popular I’ll post a whiteboard session every week for you to have a go at, so if you want a FREE session every week, you better leave me a comment below and tell me!
Very quick reminder that if you’re interested in building work capacity, strength and conditioning you should check out Vern Gambetta’s Building the Complete Athlete Workshop in November and Tamas Feher’s Olympic Lifting Practical workshop on the 20th October. Both these guys are coaching legends and really know their stuff. I’m really excited for both courses.
Right, that’s all for now,
Have a good Friday!
