Local Footy Gems from AFL/TAC S&C Coach's Burgo and Matty Part 9/9

Parts #1#2#3#4#5#6 #7 and #8.

WHAT DO YOU SEE AS THE MAIN DIFFERENCES IN THE REQUIREMENTS OF AN AFL/VFL PLAYER VS A HIGH GRADE L/A PLAYER V REGULAR L/A PLAYERS?

BURGO:

From a physical standpoint it's their aility to repeat high intensity efforts.

There's a massive difference between L/A and AFL in this regard.

MATTY:

Competitiveness is number 1 for me as you can't measure it and it's really hard to teach but it overrides a lot of physical limitations and AFL recruiters love it.

Clayton Oliver (Melbourne Demons) came to us at 18, spent a whole pre-season in rehab with cooked groins, showed little to no compliance with any of the programs we had in place either.

He went into practice games with no pre-season, couldn't run and had poor skin-folds but only won our B&F, got drafted at number 4 and looks to be a genuine AFL player.

Obviously he got better in those area as the season progressed, fell into line and worked hard on certain aspects, but he wouldn't have got that opportunity  if he wasn't a competitive beast every time he stepped out onto the field.

That's the last part of this 9 part series which has provided a shitload of training information, from elite standard strength and fitness coaches, for us L/A amateur players to use.

I must thank Burgo and Matty for their time, expertise and willingness to share, which is not a huge commodity in AFL circles so a mammoth appreciation goes out to both of them.
