spent the day watching a championship squad train

 

the team strolled in 10 ish made the training pitch by 10.30

 

I watched them train for a bit then went to have a look at behind the scenes before being invited for coffee and brandy in the lounge, sat there for a bit talking then I saw that some pretty young women were putting food out "MMMMMM" i thought must have some of that , As i approached the counter in came the first team it was 12.05 I said to one of them do you have a light lunch before returning to training , He said " na we have to eat together after training but we can go home at 1pm"

what a top job they have, F**kin money grabbin lazy b**tards

 

I told the manager that training was a joke and he said "if i work them any harder the' d go on strike" :o

 

 

anyone know what other teams do

and what about you Pat

That's still a fairly appalling shambles. Inter-county (even any club) GAA teams would put them to shame and send them to hell. And still turn up for work in the morning.

The fitness of GAA players is something that's often bandied about in discussions like this, and, having no inside knowledge of the GAA scene I've often wondered how true it is or if it's just one of those things that have become fact because it's been repeated so often. Not arguing with you, just genuinely curious.

I'd have thought that a football player gets fit in the summer and tries to maintain it without knackering themselves during a season of 50+ games. A GAA player can flog himself to death in training during the winter knowing he doesn't have a top class game to play til May or June. How many games a season does an inter-county player have to be at peak fitness for?

As a GAA player myself (who also played soccer in his youth) I'd be interested in a comparison as well. The only comparison I can make is to take the example of someone I know.

 

I played both soccer and football with this person at underage level - when he was 16 he was snapped up by a big British club. He didn't cut it at that club and moved to a club in the Championship where he played reserves and one or two games for the first team.

 

It was at this time (about 4 years ago) when he was on the virge of the first team, he came home for the summer. He decided to train with the GAA club team for the summer to keep himself in gear. We went for a 5 mile run and I was genuinely shocked at how poor he performed in the run. He was at least 3 minutes behind everyone else. Bearing in mind this person would have been one of the fittest on underage teams it really was quite shocking.

Having just looked at what GAA is, isn't Aussie rules supposed to be full of enormus, gigantian but olympian fit blokes?. They appear to be two sports where complete an utter all round fitness is a must or don't even bother turning up.

A lot of GAA teams are overtrained. That is the opinion of a friend of mine who is an Olympic athlete. He trains for 15 to 18 sessions per week - 2 to 3 hours a session but that is all he does.

 

Some GAA teams are doing five or six sessions for two to three hours and are working on top of that.

 

There is often a lot of training in GAA but little science to it. Why go on five mile runs when you should be doing shuttle runs etc etc.

 

A test a few years ago between a number of different team sports players showed that a rugby union forward came out on top.

That's interesting but could it be because during the summer you were in the middle of your season whereas for him it was maybe a year since he'd done his base fitness work and was maybe at the bottom of his cycle?

Liecester ;)

 

personally they don't look like there even doing enough exercise  to keep what ever summer fitness they may have gained

They only do light training because of memories of Jock Wallace and his infamous "Hill" that half killed most of the team. :wacko:

GAA players are far fitter in terms of stamina because they cover a lot more ground in games while jogging. I'd say footballers are just as fit when it comes to short explosive 20-30 yard sprints though, which is what is needed mainly in football.

There's a huge gap between the premiership and the championship. My uncle works for the drug testing people so visits a lot of training grounds and says that the difference is staggering. Not just in training methods but in nutrition and that side of things.
