Improve muscular strength and endurance, whether to make climbing the stairs easier, improve your ‘one repetition max’ or establish and maintain team selection.

 

Team sports require players to have a multitude of skills. You need to be flexible and agile, powerful and have the stamina to maintain performance throughout the match. Whether it’s football, hockey or netball, off-pitch training is just as important as team practice.

Muscular strength has often been neglected by health and exercise experts in favour of cardio-vascular fitness. However, it is now well recognised that muscular strength is vital to good health and overall quality of life. Muscles make up more than 40% of your body mass and strong, well-developed muscles help you perform daily activities with greater ease, protect you from injury and enhance your health in numerous other ways.
