If it is early in the GAA off-season and you are a club player that is looking to take preparation to the next level you’ve come to the right place. I recently moved home to Ireland to open Motiv8 Fitness after spending five years working with some high performance strength and conditioning programmes in America. Since that timeframe it is obvious that strength and conditioning practices and training programmes have improved immensely but there is still a lot of progress to be made.

Most of the GAA weight training programmes I have come across make four errors;

  1. Too high in training volume [total repetitions per session, week or month]
  2. Too little single leg or stability exercises
  3. Not enough shoulder prehab or shoulder stability exercises
  4. Strength programmes do not complement the running/conditioning programmes put in place
