How can S&C help to become a better fighter?
Strength & Conditioning is a fundamental element to help enhance future performance inside and outside the cage/ring. With S&C you will begin to move better, become stronger and reduce the chance of injury. Weak things break and that is why as S&C coaches it is our job to make resilient and robust athletes. We also have to mention the conditioning side of S&C as that is one of the most vital parts to performance. And no I am not talking about general fitness I’m talking about being conditioned ready for your sport.
How do you know what I need to work on to improve performance?
During your assessment day, you and the coaches will run through a list of performance tests. Once all tests are complete the coach will then begin to analyse each test individually and collectively, this holistic approach gives the coach a greater insight into what areas need to be improved (speed, power, aerobic endurance et.)
