The program encompasses an 8-week progression through strength, conditioning, speed and change of direction/agility elements. There are 2-3 strength sessions/week, 2 conditioning sessions/week and 1-2 optional speed/agility sessions/week included.
Access to a gym is preferable for completion of the program. However, you will be able to complete the conditioning, speed and agility sessions without the use of a gym. You may be able to complete the plyometrics, bodyweight exercises and some of the gym-based strength training with minimal equipment. Variations are provided for every exercise.
I have worked with a broad range of GAA players. Some have played at an inter-county level, and others have struggled to make their local club side. The goal of the program is to offer an elite standard of programming and coaching, to players that would otherwise not be lucky enough to experience it. So for that reason, the program is suitable for all adult GAA players.
The conditioning sessions are individualized on a positional basis.
If you have a persistent injury, you will not be able to complete every aspect of this program. As with anything, you may experience some benefit in your unaffected qualities, but I suggest that a more personalized approach would be more beneficial for you. Either consult with a physiotherapist and supplement your rehabilitation with this program. Or alternatively, contact me for a consultation and a more personalized rehabilitation program, in in-person or online coaching.
