Local Footy Training Gems from AFL/TAC S&C Coaches Burgo and Matty Part 3/9

Part 1 can be found here.

AT THE AFL/TAC LEVEL, HOW MUCH TIME IS SPENT ON CAPACITY AND POWER FOR AEROBIC, LACTIC AND ALACTIC ENERGY SYSTEMS AND IS IT PLAYER DEPENDENT?


BURGO - It is very much player and position dependent. I tend to train players based on their specific match requirements rather then specifically developing any one particular energy system.


MATTY - We will spend time training all the energy systems at every session, but the focus just shifts as we progress through the pre-season.

We have benchmarks based on historical data and data derived from players at each position which they are given pre-Xmas.

When they come back, those who have hit or surpassed those targets shift get to shift their focus to more anaerobic development while those who aren't up to standard spend more time on aerobic work.

I think it's important to reward those who do the work and once you separate them and one group is doing aerobic hell, while the others are running fast and having more rest, it's a pretty powerful incentive.

MY SUMMARY

- The more elite levels of football you get to, and potentially technology (GPS units etc), the less specific you need to train in regards to energy systems and the more you can focus on for each player.

- At the L/A level, and with players dedicating only 6 - 9 months to footy rather then 10 - 12, I still think that most players will benefit from specific energy systems development. We have data available for specific energy systems work (time trials, resting heart rates, sprint times etc) and thus we can program and see progress on them.

- When planning your focus of any training, but energy systems training in particular, you need to know the hierarchy of energy systems training meaning the order of how things need to be trained for optimal benefit. 1 thing I will tell you right now that if you're going straight into skill work under fatigue then you're on the wrong track!
