Training at GAMESPEED!
When we train sports athletes it’s really well known that if you want to get really good speed, agility and movement then you need to utilise what’s called game speed training.
This is where we see small-sided games of football and rugby for example, and they’re actually quicker than the game. And that’s the whole point you go to train quicker so that the game is relatively easier.
Thomas Fairhair once said to me “You cannot fix a technical problem at a high intensity with technical training at a low intensity”.
What he meant by that is if somebody’s doing something that’s not correct at a 95 percent, then playing around with a 20K bar is not going to fix that problem.
It doesn’t fix people’s movement.
So do the light stuff do the unloaded stuff for awareness add a little bit of intensity, but then think about how you can break movements down at a higher intensity to train out those faults that occur and that’s game speed training for strength and conditioning.
