Imagine being able to take that blinder in front of first slip or down the leg side.
And wouldn't it be nice to feel fresh late in the day after a long day in the field?
To do this you need to be conditioning your body to be able to handle the challenges of being a wicket-keeper.
This program has been designed specifically for wicket-keepers who have previous experience in Strength & Conditioning training. All the exercises are specific to wicket-keeping and as you get fitter, stronger & more powerful, your chances of taking those spectacular catches increase, while also minimising the chance of getting injured.
How this program will help you:
* Improve mobility to minimise chances of injury
* Increase strength & mobility in wicket-keeping specific muscles
* Improve functional strength
* Increase power & speed
* Increase fitness levels while building muscle
This 4-week program is a progression from the foundational program (that focuses on body weight exercises) to a more advanced program that incorporates weights. A gym is required as many of the exercises require weights.
