Questions are coming in thick and fast at the moment

 

They always seem to at this time of year

 

Which is great as it means you’re taking your winter prep seriously

 

And that equates to a better season for you next year

 

This weeks questions is from Graeme

 

Here is what he asked

 

======================================================

 

Hi guys

 

Trying to sort my winter program, from the 3 programs you have put in the Inner Circle I have gone with the one that suits me the best

 

The question I have is that when should I start running?

 

I always feel better with running in my program, even if its just from a psychological point

 

And my pace definitely needs work

 

Thanks

 

Graeme

Great questions

 

And it will depend on a couple factors

 

The first would be how heavy your workload has been during the season

 

If it has been pretty heavy then id look to have a bit longer away from pounding the pavement

 

Whilst running is still a bit easier on the body than bowing (about 4 times your bodyweight rather than 8 in fast bowlers) its still pretty heavy going on top of a big season

 

And you have to take into account if you have any pelvic issues

 

If it is out of whack then running on it will only compound the problem, and make it worse

 

Now for the sprinting aspect to help technique then we want to start with drills in the gym, things like hip lock, isometric pushes and hip drives

 

Super setting with some actual sprint work will help solidify what you do in the gym

 

And starting on an easier surface, like grass or the aerofloor will also help

 

So make sure your pelvis and movement in general is good, you are feeling fresh, then choose the best surface to start on

 

And if you need programs then the Inner Circle is full of them

 

As well as the 3 winter programs that Graeme spoke of
