AFL TRAINING TIP: STRENGTH

Aussie Rules is a contact sport, so players require a huge amount of strength so they can stand their ground, take marks, tackle and also gain greater resilience to injury. Players need to have a strong overall body, which can be achieved through strength training. This should consist of whole body strengthening (not just one specific area). A good way to achieve this is through a circuit, which could include the following exercises:

• Legs: Squats, lunges, step-ups and box bounds
• Chest: Push-ups, dumbbells and chest press
• Shoulders and arms: Dumbbell shoulder press and dips
• Back: Seated row
