Been busy this week but I will do a big update tonight…it will have everything…amazing physical feats, tragic and painful accidents, poor coaching, physical deformities, questions will be answered and ridiculous statements will be made…you know…the usual.
I was asked about ankle mobility work…well here is James doing some this morning…this post still isn’t finished so I am going to throw it in here so people don’t miss the rest of the stuff.
Ankle Mobility Work
Med Ball Slams
Brophy and Sexton both throw like girls.
In fairness though we’ve got some pretty tough girls.
She-man putting the lads to shame…give it a go and see how fast you can do it? I know James will want to lift his game after he see this.
James did his first proper session today:
Bike – 5 mins
Med Ball Lunge/Trunk Rotation – 3 sets of 8 on each side with the 5kg med ball.
Overhead Med Ball Squats – 3 sets of 10 reps with the 5kg med ball.
Box Squats and Box Jumps – Sets of 3 reps on the squats and 3 reps on the box jumps.
James doing box squats for the very first time. He’s an elite athlete with novice skills which makes him particularly interesting to coach.
Does it make me a bad person just because I get so much joy out of my athletes hurting themselves?
Just to show that he can do it well and it wasn’t all pain and agony.
DB Floor Press and Lying Med Ball Chest Throw – 5 work sets of 3 reps of each.
DB Floor Press and Med Ball Throw.
Pull Ups and Med Ball Throw Downs – 5 work sets of 3 reps of each.
Then we did a lot of stretching…and when I say we I mean James just groaned a lot as I bent him into various pretzel like shapes.
I’m going to post all of Rammer’s work sets on his Trap Bar Deadlift. All the sets were done at 160kgs. Basically I use video a lot when coaching. I think it really helps athletes to be able to see what they are doing as well as seeing what other athletes like themselves are doing.
