BGS TEAM FITNESS TRAINING In BGS our Fitness Training is an educational and integral discipline taking into consideration all the aspects that positively influence our athletes to be better and more efficient; training and strengthening the core through the use of properly

performed stability-based exercises is a high priority in order to optimise

functioning and injury prevention of our athletes.

Protocols such as warm up, cool down, movement

techniques, nutrition, postural inbalances, etc, are all given their

respective and equal priority. Specific

fitness training is done on the court itself to improve speed and movement patterns. Speed and strength aspects that are key to modern day squash and fitness in a more global way will be centred in the

gymn, swiming pool, and outside on the athletics track. The nearby beaches and

surrounding mountains will also provide

options for fitness training where group sessions can provide

diversity and fun. In the BGS s ummer camp, although physical preparation is a priority for all our players, we are aware that this is the summer and we will take into consideration a specific volume of fitness that respects the vacational mind-set and abscence of periodisation. 14 |barcelonaglobalsquash.com
