When it comes to strength and conditioning there is no one program fits all 🙅🏼♀️
The needs of a basketballer 🏀 is very different to that of a weightlifter 🏋🏼♀️ The demands on a soccer player ⚽️ is very different to a footballer 🏉 Positionally demands vary also; skills required of a ruck is very different to that of a rover. Tennis 🎾 to hockey 🏒 Athletics 🏃🏻♀️to swimming 🏊🏼♂️You get the picture. ***Hashtag emoticon game so strong!!
Downloading a program off the internet or following something written for someone else is never an ideal way to go. Sure there will be things in it that do provide positive results, but at the end of the day you must remember; a generic program (often the case with big time online celebrity trainers) is a generic program and one written for someone else doesn’t take into account your individual traits, goals, needs, medical history or lifestyle.
Quality program writing is about far more than designing a good warm up and setting a decent rep range. More often than not programs found via a quick google search do not take into account an individuals training experience, their strengths and weaknesses, biomechanics, lifestyle patterns, injury history, equipment access etc. For those participating in team sports, mass produced programs often fail to consider load management and don’t align individual programming with that of the athletes club training requirements. All of which puts the individual at risk of potential injury and poor performance.
Whether an aspiring AFLW athlete or someone looking to lose body fat for their upcoming birthday party, taking the time to find a program that is specifically tailored to you and your needs is ALWAYS the way to go.
