Inherent contradictions much?


#1582

Ffs.

Go away and don’t be tagging me with such rubbish.


#1583

If you can’t, or don’t; see it, I won’t worry about it fella


#1584

There is nothing egotistical about what I said ya ghowl


#1585

Heading away next weekend with a juvenile team for a bit of team building and warm weather training.


#1586

Ice baths, altitude training, bikram yoka and military style training are all nonsense say the GAA


#1587

The GAA boys loved their ice baths there for a while

#1588

McGregor is s big fan of the altitude training. And there’s no hidden gag there.


#1589

It’s gas.
They are right about alot of stuff there, but then they get some of the Principals of training wrong and a few other glaring mistakes.

Yet why not mention Crossfit???

Afraid of getting sued?

GAA 15 is also substandard. It’s funny they way they name tag FIFA 11 which is also different less physical game and one with some dodgy science with it. All studies were done v. No warm up.

Sure of course that’s going to be better


#1590

McGregor S&C is shit. He uses alot of faddy other elements as well.

The cunt is just a genetic freak. Looking at what lads like him do is a waste of time.


#1591

Fire away Kev

Queries or requests for further advice/information in relation to the above or other training/recovery methods can be e-mailed to playerwelfare@gaa.ie


#1592

Why would ya bother. It would be ignored.

I’ll just keep doing a good job and get paid for it. They can keep encouraging lads to wing it.


#1593

That article/report is just a blanket cover your arse statement from the GAA, so if anyone comes back complaining about oxygen deprivation or getting an awkward boner in bikram yoga, they can say they warned against it.


#1594

Ya partly. Some would also say there is a push from GAA “to rid the game of these s&c coaches” as was relayed back to me as being said by one of the big shots. In front of a few s&c coaches as it happens.

They seem to think they can educate your ordinary local coach on best practice with a few things like this.

Who is this player welfare officer?


#1595

I bet it’s a physio


#1596

That outlook is self perpetuating. You’d prefer not to engage and continue to bitch about what they’re doing wrong.

If you engaged you could have some positive impact like you say you want to have. Generally when organisations call for input they actually want it.


#1597

Generally is the correct word there. The gaa doesn’t want anyone’s input.

This has been done in the past. People have gone to them with far better ideas anyone’s nd far more expert views. Waste of the mine.

It’s someone who knows Niall Moyna or a relation of the big wigs.

And anyway, all I am doing is informing people not to take everything as is and to think for themselves


#1598

This is all you need and plenty of it.


#1599

And a bit of backs and forwards


#1600

Backs and forwards are back with a bang. The auld lads were right all along.
