Another belter of a question in on facebook last week
Someone wondering if we had stuff that could help batters as well
He is what was asked
A couple of years back I purchased a youth cricketers s&c guide from you when my lad Rhys was 15.
He is now 18 and has transferred from Middlesex Disability to Essex.
He is a LH bat, middle order. 6ft tall and about 13 stone
Do you have a S&C programme specifically for young batsman, he does a bit of keeping as well as general fielding
He also has a week throw, technique which is part of his disability with coordination
Any chance you have something that could help him during winter and pre season?
Great question Paul
We have gone away a bit from doing positon specific plans and gone more toward the individual specific plans
So what we want to do is make the player hit their physical peak and introduce the sports specific special training into it
The structure for a batter would look the same for the first part
Iron out dysfunction, build a sound base, add some strength
Look at running efficiency, especially in terms of running between the wickets and turning etc
Then the special strength work would be putting the mediball session, and isometric work for lower body mechanics
Remember the base is very similar to the bowler, we want the braced leg getting that hip through to create the power
And bobs your uncle, you have a batters program
What we are doing is a webinar for our inner circle on the batting specific strength drills as part of their fab 4 trainings they get each month
So if youre interested in joining the inner circle have a look here https://www.cricketstrength.com/inner-circle
