Training - Monday 17th December, 2012 @ Casey Fields (afternoon)

Recommended Posts

The Darwin trip is over and I presume the boys are back but the club site isn't telling us whether there's any training this week.

Anyone know?

I don't know much at all about sports physiology or what have you but wouldn't there be some kind of rest week after a camp as taxing as this?

There is another week or so of rest just around the corner with Christmas and the New Year. The running might be tapered off for a week but i would say they would at least be doing weights/skills/gameplan sessions.

Training a team into the ground without break isn't going to win games, you need a balance.

I think those in charge will know that. Still I'm sure they'll be grateful for your advice. I think Biffin had his tongue in his cheek.

Did I say I think they don't know that? I was disagreeing with Biffens statement which isn't all that tongue in cheek in my opinion (though maybe he can shed some light on that), not the way the MFC is/has been operating its training schedule.

Going to be around Swan Street tomorrow morning, guess I better not plan on dropping in to training.

Didn't we already do that just a few years back?

I am looking forward to what Dees have in store for their annual Christmas video.

Hmmm... I'm certainly not. Such things are usually nothing more than "squirmworthy", last years effort being right up there with the best (read, worst).

They had a 22 week break this season.

I seem to remember someone saying in one of the reports from the NT, it will be a light week on the track for the boys.

I'm planning to head down on Wednseday, it will be interesting to see if the boys are noticably feeling the effects of the camp. I think I read somewhere that the fitness staff had told the players to expect to lose around 4-5kgs each.

I got there at 3pm and they were already well underway.

Joining the main group were Sylvia, Evans, Kent, Turlich, Clisby and Stark. I didn't see Matt Jones, Hogan or Trengove (obviously).

The rehab group was Grimes, Dunn, Dawes, Gawn and Clark and they were running on one of the other ovals. Watts was just doing some gentle jogging but not for long. He disappeared inside soon after. Taggert was also doing laps

Clark came back half way through and also went inside.

Training was sharp and as hard as usual, not the "light" session as mentioned although it was all finished by 4.30. They did the usual drills. Davey surprised me, he was quick on the lead and took one grab marks above his head 5-6 times in a row, but like all of the forwards his shots for goal were fairly poor. Byrnes was particularly poor kicking 1 out of the 5-6 shots I saw him take.

Fizpatrick was again prominent in the 300m sprints, clearly the fastest of the big guys.

Sylvia was lagging at the back with Crouch. Jetta and Davey stuggled on the repetative sprints also Gillies and Macdonald in their sprints. Barry did very well in all of what I saw him do and Pedersen likewise.

Tynan looked good, moved well and kicked well as did Strauss and Evans,

Toumpas moves well but he's not as big as his photos suggest, at least next to his team mates he looks light.

Stark and Clisby did laps after the first few drills but are quite light framed as you would expect.

Terlich moved and kicked well and with good pace as did Tapscott.

All the usual seniors did well, Jones, Frawley, Garland but I was really concentrating on the 'fringe' guys.

I don't take notes so this is what I remember.
