I had a new project walk in today…James plays a bit of tennis and he is going to be seeing a lot of me over the next couple of months.
Today was our first meeting and we got straight to work. I want to post these up because I know already that he’s one of those athletes who is going to really get stuck into whatever I give him.
We will be testing tomorrow morning…in 5hrs actually and I’ll write his program for the next couple of months after we see where we are at. This morning we basically just had a bit of a look at him so I could see what I had to work with.
I’m not going to say what I think…you have a look at him and let me know what you think he needs?
We did some hurdle steps.
Going left to right.
Going right to left.
So what do you see so far?
We did a lot of ankle mobility work…it wasn’t great either…but we’ll sort that out as well.
Here he is doing some single leg knee drops…I can’t keep my big mouth shut…this was his third set and I’d coached him through the previous two sets but some of his issues are still apparent here?
Single leg knee drops.
Then we did some blast strap push ups and inverted rows. I’m not going to pack the blog with videos but I thought I’d throw this in as James has a pretty common condition in athletes in single side dominant sports like tennis and golf.
Blast strap push ups.
I know this is cruel…but I just can’t help myself.
James doing some plate shifting for the first time.
Some clapped out broken down old man doing some plate shifting.
Do you think this guy was in a hurry to get his last set over and done with?
