As we wrap up 6 months of working with the GRC girls soccer team. I would like to highlight our training. We have had a great time working these ladies and watching all of their progress. We began with the team on January 2nd. Our primary goal during January & February were to assess overall movement quality and developing proper movement patterns with the girls. We spent minimal time working on conditioning at this time. We spent a lot of time developing proper squat and deadlift mechanics.
-abs Other areas of major improvement. In January we had players unable to jump on a 20″ box and no one jumping a box higher than 30″s. Just 2 weeks ago everyone got onto 24″ box with several of the girls getting up to 36″. As we wind down our training and the girls head into the season. The focus has shifted developing our aerobic capacity through conditioning. Nothing fancy here a lot sled work, prowler sprints, med balls and kettlebells.
