How to make Pre-Season Training Interesting, Relevant and More Fun
June 19, 2018
I Hate Pre-Season TrainingThis is often the thought of players who are forced to undergo various fitness tests and long slow runs as part of a pre-season fitness programme.Doing repeated doggies, shuttle runs and various circuits, with barely a ball in sight is enough to put most players off.It doesn't have to be this way.

Dumbbells or Machines? Istvan Javorek

The benefits of dumbbell training by Istvan Javorek

  • Javorek dumbbell complexDumbbell training is generally safe.
  • Does not need a large practice area.
  • Is easy to teach (compared to barbell lifts).
  • Can be done simultaneously and very efficiently with a large number of athletes.
  • Is dynamic with a large range of motion (actually the range of motion is unlimited).
  • A large range of exercise variations.
  • Stimulates (very important in so many sports) the balance mechanisms powerfully (which much machine training does not adequately do)
  • Enables one to develop unlimited muscular power, cardiovascular and muscular endurance, flexibility and strength (most machine training develops muscles but not dynamic explosive strength).
  • Is inexpensive to equip a gym with several sets of DBs.
  • Can be very easily monitored with a 100 percent accuracy, because we have an exact number of repetitions, sets, volumes and rhythm of exercising.
  • Enables one to efficiently monitor the heart rate before and after each set, thus providing a very clear view of recovery time and the physical fitness level of the individual athlete.
  • DB exercise variations are unlimited and any experienced coach should be able to figure out many novel variations of DB exercises.
