Summer GK strength & conditioning
Hey guys. I hope you are all enjoying some time off hockey or maybe playing indoor or summer hockey. While the girls were killing it in Argentina I was in Perth enjoying a long awaited rest from hockey whilst working hard with my preseason training.
It has been an unbelievable year for the Hockeyroos. Silver at the World Cup, Gold at the Comm Games in a very tense game then Silver at the Champions Trophy. The team is improving every day and I am so lucky to be a part of it all. The focus for the Hockeyroos has now shifted to RIO 2016 so we are straight into a very tough strength and conditioning phase. I have been really enjoying my gym program and now have speed and conditioning work as part of my week. Massage and yoga are also in there plus plenty of time to enjoy myself and make the most of the time away from our normal Perth training environment. I have put together a bit of a video with some of the drills and exercises that myself and some of the girls have been doing. I hope it can give you a few ideas or maybe just encourage you to get stuck into your training a little earlier to get a head start for the new year.
If you wanted to try training with the Agility band, which you will see featured in the video, they can be purchased here
Check out my video on our Summer Preseason training here. You can also relive ‘that moment’ when Jodie scored the winner at the Commonwealth Games.
I have also been lucky enough to be nominated for International Goal Keeper of the Year by the FIH. If you would like to vote for me or any of the other Aussies nominated please click here Or search for Federation International Hockey on facebook and follow the links to Player of the year. Thanks 🙂
