Our first round of 1-1 VIP players are well into their training
And they are doing amazingly well so far
They are certainly getting some odd looks whilst they are doing their program in the gym, it certainly doesn’t look like your normal gym routine that is for sure!
One of our guys, George, is into his first round of specific strength work to help his action
We don’t go down the traditional route of periodisation but get to work in phase 2 to help make you action as good as it can be
Big George is a hip dom bowler and had this question about one of the drills we have him doing
When doing the impulse bowl what should I be trying to focus on?
Should I should be actively trying to achieve the outcome I want when bowling, or will the drill be naturally improving that with the depth?
And what I’ve been blown away with is the way they have asked questions
Lots of questions
Which is great because they wouldn’t have seen a lot of the drills before (hell I still ask Steff questions all the time and pick his brains)
And the beauty of the 1-1 is that we are always here for them for what they need
No for the question
When we are using the conditioning drills to help (and in some terms hack) the action then we need to be clear about how we do them
Basically we want them to match what we are trying to get to in the action
So if it’s a hip dom bowler like George we are looking to get him stiffer and taller on his back foot, so when he does mediball or conditioning drills he needs to be doing this
And not on the odd one
EVERY SINGLE REP
Don’t get lazy, drill drill drill
Youll be surprised at how quickly the body can change
And before you know it, it’s in the action too
