14.Sep.12 Cornwall to benefit from Physical Preparation workshop
Rob Thickpenny (England Athletics National Coach Mentor – Physical Preparation) and Mark Brace (England Athletics Area Coach Mentor - Endurance) will be presenting a free Physical Preparation workshop for coaches on 27th October in Cornwall. Coaches are welcome to bring one or two key athletes on the day.
The first part of the workshop will focus on developing the physical qualities for all events using a versatile equipment bag. Specifically the use of medicine balls and strength bands for the development of key strength related movement patters; also exploring the uses of a suspension training kit for the development of general strength and trunk conditioning.
Part 2 of the day will focus on multi-throws (medicine ball conditioning) and their relevance to all event groups. Coaches will learn about developing triple extension with throws and the importance of postural control. Coaches will also develop an understanding of the force-velocity time curve.
