Inline Lunge: The inline lunge is 1 of 7 functional movement patterns within the Functional Movement Screen (FMS), and apart of our athlete screening here at 2Hfd.It places the lower body in an asymmetrical foot position and challenges the trunk to remain stabilised. The pattern also assesses core stability, thoracic spine limitations and hip, knee, ankle and foot mobility/stability. Overall this basic but informative functional movement pattern presents us with an opportunity to observe functional symmetry because it challenges left and right body patterns.

Reaction Belt Training:Partnered agility training used for general conditioning or developing evasion and reactive speed. This multidirectional agility exercise enhances the athletes ability to be quick and explosive over the first few yards in response to reading subtle changes in an opponents body position and in turn reacting rapidly to such stimuli. It develops many facets involved in both acceleration and deceleration, important characteristics of top footballers around the world. Competitive one-on-one agility training also benefits neurological adaptation, improves player athleticism, and has a positive impact on injury prevention, as well as minimising rehabilitation time.

Fast Feet - Passing

Fast feet over a pole with the incorporation of a ball:Our aim in providing our players with such an exercise, along with speed ladder drills, is to develop brain-to-muscle connection (neural stimulation), eccentric strength, lateral foot speed (COD), balance & coordination, stride rate (acceleration), hip, knee and ankle stability, and passing technique and control.A great exercise to not only benefit physiological attributes but incur neural adaptations too.

Nordic Hamstring Lowers:Hamstring strains account for up to 12-16% of injuries in football. Eccentric strength training via Nordic hamstring exercises, combined with a warm-up and stretching, improves eccentric hamstring peak torque and in turn reduces the risk of hamstring strains. We've incorporated Nordic Hamstring Lowers within our injury prevention program in an attempt to increase the playing time of our players this season.

Tough session the other night but with the season around the corner, it's all about those extra yards. Daniel has been with us since day 1 and his hard work is already starting to pay off.
