Don’t worry big fella, I’m not gonna start singing

 

Blurred lines is how we need to start seeing the overall aspects of training

 

Here is what I mean

 

At the moment pretty much every different type of training is done in isolation

 

Lets take someone who gets an injury

 

They still take the tradition route

 

So first up youd go to the physio and have them treat you for maybe the first month

 

Then youd be told to go and work with an S&C to work on ‘strength’

 

Lastly it would be back to the cricket coach for bowling specific work drills before being back playing

 

Classic periodisation does the same as well, blocks for different elements

 

But we need to start being a lot smarter the way we think about training as a whole

 

Start to think not in terms of rehab, strength, power, hypertrophy etc but of a more bowling specific centric

 

A little like how I was speaking about the boxing earlier in the week, where the skill is what they are looking to develop, with everything else supporting it

 

Whereas cricket seems to be trying to develop the S&C side with little thought for the actual thing they are having to do for 6 months a year

 

This is where the blurred lines need to come in

 

Each part needs to know what the other is doing

 

So for example after the fast bowlers profile day we did here at WCCC, the bowling coach, physio and myself set to talk about the findings, look through all the data collected from the experts we had in that day, and set a joint plan for what they all need

 

All of knew what was going on

 

The sessions then would encompass bits of things from across all areas

 

So a complete session would include corrections from a movement dysfunction, conditioning from a physical limitation and a bowling skill specific

 

We aren’t waiting till march to start just bowling

 

What we want is maximum transfer

 

Blur the lines, think outside the norm, and start seeing results

 

Think differently
