This one-day workshop will focus on athletic development and is aimed at coaches who intend on introducing a strength and conditioning programme to their clubs and athletes.
The workshop will enable coaches to improve their short & long-term training planning. Strength and conditioning has become a vital component of an athletes training to prevent injury and improve their physical capacities.
Our workshop will allow coaches the opportunity to understand the fundamentals of strength and conditioning in a practical environment and will be invited to get involved in the exercise demonstrations.
Upon completion of this workshop, coaches will understand the key exercises necessary for athletic development, be able to implement safe and effective exercise instruction and apply this into their clubs and training groups.
Coaches will receive an Athletics Ireland strength and conditioning manual upon completion of this course.
This manual provides a setp by step exercise guide that should be included in training, alongside both adaptations and progressions of each exercise.
