Complete guide to Strength Training for Cricketers.

A Day in the life of a fast bowler

A lot of people still seemed pretty surprised that cricketers need a strength & conditioning coach

 

Its still perceived as the game played on the village green with cucumber sandwiches at tea

 

Well its moved on since then

 

The modern fast bowler has to be spot on in their prep to keep on top of their game and injury free

 

Ill take you through a day on the life here, of a fast bowler during a 4 day game

 

8am- Arrive and assessment with both me and the physio.

 

We look for anything that might have cropped up from the day before, any aches or pains or slight changes in pattern. They then get their own soft tissue work to be done

 

830am- Breakfast

 

Our chefs are pretty good, protein pancakes using Grenade Muscle Machine are a firm favourite

 

9am- Mobility

 

Following on from the soft tissue work we then try and cement their improved range with movement and mobility exercises. We use like a correction and activation at the same time

 

10am- Warm up

 

The bowlers will then go through a RAMP warm up, which stands for Raise (core temperature) Activate (the muscles) Mobilise (the movements) and Potentiate (the muscles ready for bowling). From there they move into bowl throughs

 

1045- Bit of a pre bowl snack, and some Grenade Defence BCAA

then during the sessions snacking on Grenade Carb Killa bars

 

1300- Lunch, any mobilisation or soft tissue that needs doing after the morning sessions, then activation and mediball drills 10 mins before afternoon session starts

 

1540- Tea- Protein Bar or Mix Shake

 

1800- Game ends.

 

Warm and cool baths, soft tissue, Grenade Muscle Machine Lean Protein shake

 

Then repeat the next day

 

On top of this is the actual overs they are bowling, which can be between 20-30 on a heavy day

 

And on non bowling days getting the conditioning sessions in

 

Its certainly a long way away from the village green!

 

Think differently
