Technique training is an essential part of any athlete’s training programme, so it will not surprise you to know that we place a lot of emphasise on this in our training sessions. A typical training session will look like this:
2. Mobility and dynamic stretching
3. Technique work
4. training session
5. Conditioning work
6. Warm down
The technique work will depend on what events you are training for, but will cover running, jumping and throwing events.
STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING
Our Coaches are qualified in the range of strength and conditioning work, which all athletes should have as part of their training sessions.
In track and field athletics this will cover a variety of work-outs, to ensure that various parts of the body are strong enough to undertake the training and competition of the event(s) they are training for. One of the key elements of conditioning for all track and field athletics is “core stability”, and we have a variety of equipment and sessions to assist with this.
In a number of events upper body strength is important, but this doesn’t necessarily mean the development of “big” muscles, but making what muscles you have stronger, again we a variety of equipment to assist with this process, whether its medicine balls or weights.
Whatever aspect of strength and conditioning is needed, we can advise and provide training programmes for any particular event and for the time of the year the sessions are required.
