CONE DRILLS TIME OF DEATH: TODAY!

I’ve posted about my loathing levels of cone drills plenty of times previously, yet continue to be a staple of local football at all levels and ages even with the mammoth amount of evidence that for skill development and game intelligence, they are simply awful. 4 days ago a study was released on Twitter titled...

4 STEPS TO EXPLOITING THE STAND RULE

This rule has been in footy for a few years now but it’s still hugely underutilised at local level which is surprising because of the affordances you can attain from it which never used to be there – it’s made the game easier to transition the ball but only if you know what you’re doing....

IMPROVE YOUR TIME TO FATIGUE TRAINING PROGRAM

OK, you start your watch and head out for a run, get back and look at the time. A 25sec personal best over 3kms, great. You continue with this method time after time and at some point, more often sooner before later, you can’t really beat your time anymore. You can close to it, but...
