The last thing we want is for players to return to football after all these months of lockdown – only to hobble off the field again because of an avoidable injury.

Over 45 player John and his teammates had the same concerns. John reached out to us with the idea of a pre-season training program to ease the transition for members back onto the field – particularly those with a few more years of experience.

Our fantastic physio partner Balmain Sports Medicine (BSM) stepped up to the mark, with Matt Wiadrowski putting together a tailored series of exercises for members to work through in the week’s ahead.

Click here for a PDF of the ‘Back to Football’ Training Program, and get started on those squats.

We’ll also be sharing a few videos created by BSM via our social media, which demonstrate proper technique in some of these exercises (view the first video below). To stay in the loop, make sure to follow the club on FacebookInstagram and/or YouTube.

Stay safe, find your fitness and be kind to your body so we can all come back strong after the long break.
