New Burgess inovation, interval running, used to do this years ago in military, walk 25 , jog 25, sprint 25 around the oval, gets muscles used to doing the same , great for endurance surprisingly

Well, this is a Back to the Future innovation. 

As old as the hills as you suggest Saty. 

Not a bad thing. 

i have always thought that many of the so called new innovations in sports training are no more effective, and, in some cases, less effective than some of the old methods. Some old methods get disposed of simply because they are seen as "old hat" and coaches want to be seen to be innovative and different.

This is true in most things. 

Sometimes the old methods do get reinvented. Good to see that Burgess is not afraid to go back to old methods.

Yep, sometimes there is mythology with the new stuff due to teams trying to get an 'edge'. 

Bit like ice baths are now problematic...

Agreed, jog 25, walk 25 and sprint 25 is not new and hard to understand why it hasn't been part of our basic training as that is exactly how a game is played.  imv being the fast 2km or 3km runner doesn't count for much during games.  Its the stop start stuff that becomes important.  Lets hope it pays off with player endurance and two-way running.

KK was not there, or AVB unless early, Weid was out early for a quick sesh

Smith and Nietschke in rehab

Dunkley didn't do much

Gawn, Tommy Mc there

Preuss' body shape from last year unrecognisable, dropped a few kilos

Oliver looking in great shape, cruised through the session

Firsr 3/4 of session was ball movement

New Burgess inovation, interval running, used to do this years ago in military, walk 25 , jog 25, sprint 25 around the oval, gets muscles used to doing the same , great for endurance surprisingly

Any concerns about Tommy Mc alleviated,spent 10 minutes at end, running full pace down middle of oval from end to end

Gawn also motored around the oval a couple of times at the end, as per the norm these days, looks in immaculate condition

All the 'young' boys,  nobody looked underdone

A point, Omac (for all the haters) looked really sharp for first session

Pleased to hear this Saty. Said during the season, if he went on the Gawn diet and exercise regimen during the off season he would become far more mobile and could potentially be a deep forward type plus forward 50 ruck. I think the club also said post season that they are looking to develop his forward work so hopefully we are seeing the beginnings of that 👍

I remember going to a preseason training session out at Casey (circa when Jack Viney was training with us prior to being drafted) and they were doing a lot of interval training.

Thanks for the training report, Saty.  Much appreciated that you make the effort and reports back here.

I was thinking that AFL is becoming a lot like Biathalon.  High heart rates and intensities, followed by moments where slow heart rate and accurate skill execution (goal kicking, foot skills, hand skills) are required.  I imagine the best way to train for this is interval and recovery training, with lactate tolerance work.  

We talk about disposal efficiency and goal kicking efficiency, but if you have just sprinted your guts out and have poor cardiovascular recovery, then the fine motor skill required is probably going to be massively influenced.   This is why the shot clock can be so important.

2019, if the list were not fit enough around this, it is no wonder their skills were degraded. Lets see how they train up this pre-season to be able to recover fast and perform the core skills when not recovered (and under pressure).

2019 we weren't fit enough because of our high turnovers.  We ran out of steam because instead of controlling the ball we turned it over and had to work back all the time, work hard to get the ball again just to turn it over going into our forward 50m, we just didn't get a breather.  Our fault though, tidy up the turnovers and you don't have to work as hard

I arrived late at the session and only saw the running.

Clayton Oliver was looking very good, had rhythm, balance and power as he glided across the field. He maintained his competitive instinct with is running mate James Jordan.

Tom and Oscar Mcdonald both moving strongly. Tom looking unimpeded and often leading Oscar.

Bailey Fritsch and Charlie Spargo running easily and seemed to be enjoying the return to the club.

Max Gawn running with Braydon Preuss. After the younger ones left, Max continued doing his own runs and was pushing himself pretty hard. Braydon doing some extra kicking, leading and marking with Gregg Stafford.

Marty Hore running hard, together with Troy Chaplin who was regularly a few meters behind him.

Tom Sparrow was in the lead most of the time when running with a small group of four players (Toby Bedford, Oscar Baker and I think Kade Chandler or Jay Lockart).

Not a big squad a few must have finished early and some still away, I didn't see Harrison Petty.

I thought there were about 8 coaches out in middle but no Simon Goodwin or Alan Richardson.

Not very vocal but it felt like they were all itching to get on with it and appeared to be happy being back in the fold.

Interesting comparison and some excellent points.

Is add in addition to fitness technique is critical. In any sport good technique helps performance under fatigue and conversely fatigue exacerbates poor technique.

Why is Maxy back so early? I guess the only person I'm interested in seeing how they rock up to pre season is May.

I suspect as many people trained today as had post season surgery last year.

Of the latter group Oliver, tmac and omac were all training (and others no doubt). 

Add to that that this time last year dunkley and Lockhart were nor even at an AFL club.

I like it.

Is it just me or does Fritsch look a bit like Brad Green from that clip? Probably plays similar to him too. 

I was gonna post the same thing!  Striking similarity (from some angles, at least...!)

Not just you.

I've always thought there's a bit of Brad Green about Fritsch.

Particularly the lead up mark inside 50, and his kicking style.

I looked up their heights and was surprised to read that Fritsch is 4cm taller than Green. He looks much shorter out on the ground.

be interesting to see if Bedford and Chandler come on this season.  I thought Chandler's debut was pretty good and I reckon he has that pest look about him.

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday.

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for.

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up.
