Training

In order to produce the highest level of athletic performance it is important to assess and train various aspects of sports conditioning. These include power, strength, speed, agility, coordination, flexibility, local muscular endurance,and cardiovascular aerobic capacity. Each aspect can be vastly improved with sound training but will only be useful if they are tailored to the specific demands of your sport. Therefore we recommend that before you jump into a workout you do four things:

  1. Establish the physical requirements ofyour sport
  2. Ascertain your training goals
  3. Incorporate these into your training regime i.e. base your regime around tasks that will help you achieve you goals and that are directly related to the muscles that are engaged in your activity.
  4. Perform a baseline fitness test. This is an excellent means of viewing your training progress over time and ideally should be conducted before, during and upon completion of your training regime.The table below outlines some commonly used fitness tests in sport:

 

Test                                                        Useful for assessing

T-test                                                                   Agility

Vertical jump & standing long jump                 Jumping ability

10 and 30m dash                                    Acceleration and speed

1km dash                                                      Aerobic fitness

                                                                                            Flexibility

1. Sit and reach test                                 Trunk and lower body

2. Shoulder flex test                                    Shoulder rotation

3. Back scratch test                                     Shoulder flexion

Alternate hand wall toss test                         Co-ordination    


Now that your training goals are inplace your first port of call should be to establish a comprehensive sports-fitness base. This is important for not only your athletic performance, but also your health and well-being. To do this your weekly routine should include a mix of aerobic exercise, high intensity interval training and resistance training. Try to perform two cardiovascular and one or two HIIT sessionsper week complimented with three to five resistance based exercises. Be sure to leave at least one days rest in between two days of exercise to allow for sufficient recovery.

Aerobic exercise may include the likes of walking, jogging, biking or swimming which should be performed at around 50-65% of maximum heart rate for 30-45 minutes per session. An example of a HIIT workout is outlined below and this can be adjusted to your sports requirements. The key here is to perform short, intense bouts of exercise atnear maximum effort interspersed with less-intense recovery periods.

   

Beginner(Advanced):

  1. 3 - 5 minutes warm-up (light jog, low intensity, gradually increasing towards theend of the warm-up period)
  2. 30 (60) second high intensity, 90 (60) second low intensity
  3. 40 (70) second high intensity, 90 (60) second low intensity
  4. 50 (80) second high intensity, 90 (60) second low intensity
  5. 40 (70) second high intensity, 90 (60) second low intensity
  6. 30 (60) second high intensity, 90 (60) second low intensity
  7. 3 - 5 minutes cool-down

The table below outlines additional exercises which can be employed to compliment your general physical training. Remember, quality of movements supersede quantity of movements. Take time to learn the correct technique of exercises asthis increases the effectiveness of a workout and decreases the potential for injuries.
