Strength & Conditioning

Weights & ConditioningLimited Spaces!

Starting in October 2019, we have linked up with Swansea Strength & Conditioning to be able to provide our athletes with high quality training at low costs. 

Athletes will have access to one hour of coaching sessions a week on a Wednesday between 1pm-3pm and a plan to follow later in the week as a group or on their own. 

To join in on training, please contact the Track & Field Captain or the Cross Country Captain 

Circuits and Physical Preparation

These sessions are designed to support our middle and long distance athletes (but all are welcome), who do not need as an intense strength and conditioning workout as our power athletes. These will be a mix of weights, circuits and plyometric training to ensure our athletes have a strong core and speed base to help them over those final hundred metres. 

These sessions will also include physical preparation exercises from Welsh Athletics which focus on how athletes can improve mobility, movement and therefore athletic performance. These exercises will also reduce the chance of injury. You can find a full guide to the exercises here
