Its that time of the year again
When the pain from pre season nets starts to take hold
It can be a pretty excruciating period
We had this question in the Richie who has been having some issues
Take a look
Thanks for all the info that you put up it’s very useful.
I’ve started to notice this pre season that after every session I am finding sleeping very difficult as I am waking up on a regular basis during the night due to stiffness.
Not sure if this is a common problem or linked to getting older!
Any info would be appreciated.
First up, no worries about the info, its what we love doing, but thanks for the thanks
Now on to the issues at hand
There would be a number of avenues id look down to see if you can find a cure
The first would be looking at your bedtime routine, seeing if there could be a couple of things you could maybe add in to see if they help
Like making the bedroom completely black, a warm bath in Epsom salts, some ZMA supplements. Have a look at this video for more https://youtu.be/f8KkKhUr8zA
Maybe its your pre bowl prep that might not be helping your body get in the optimum place to be able to bowl without any issues after that
In the Inner Circle we made a full video on how to prep, called the S-RAMP
Which stand for Soft-tissue, Raise, Activate, Mobilise and Potentiate
You can make it as long or short as you need but if you aren’t doing it then you might suffer afterwards

If you are jacking your CNS up too much then some soft tissue work pre bed might be helpful, something called gut smashing with a soft ball helps take the body into a parasympathetic state and could help sleep better for longer without the waking up with stiffness
Give them a go and let us know how you get on
