“The Need For Speed!” Sprint training for professional footballers!

Posted on: June 2nd, 2011

Faye Downey has recently given two presentations on sprint training for professional footballers. These included rationale, drills, and conditioning techniques for acceleration as well as mechanics to improve  acceleration and maximum velocity running. Both were hosted by Think Fitness for their “Science in Football” Conference in March and at their Performance Conference at Tring in May. Representatives from Spurs, Manchester United and Chelsea were amongst many other Premiership Club conditioners and was an excellent opportunity to discuss the speed development strategies for football players.

Joe Worsley to return to full fitness

Posted on: January 15th, 2010

Joe Worsley has been working hard with Faye Downey to return to full fitness for the end of January. After an unfortunate early game contact grade 2 MCL that occurred in the autumn internationals, Joe had to take time off on crutches, with restricted movement. 

However, whilst completing his rehab with the Wasps physios, Joe has managed to continue his upper body and lower body strength programmes with Faye at the gym at Twickenham Stadium. He has equally been put through his paces with off feet conditioning in order to maintain his anaerobic fitness.

Now running again, Joe is able to work harder, seeing Faye for two sessions a day to optimise his work to return to play and rugby form at the end of January and into February.
