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.

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.

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    WHADDA WE SING? by Whispering Jack

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z
