Re: What testing do you do in Pre Season?


I must remember to click and save what I type! I just lost my last

For the second time- Thanks for the replies guys, both have valid points and I do agree with Fergus however as Bris said there is a certain player/coach expectation which I may challenge!!

I am going to be working with an academy level RL team which is my first step up the S&C ladder:-) We are meeting up on Tue and Thurs evening with a Friday team run through, therefore training and athlete contact time is limited!!

My thoughts were to conduct body stats first followed by either standing long jump or triple hop test then onto the 10m and 60m speed test. I was then planning on doing a 3 or 5RM squat (should I do box squat for more control?) with 1 min press up test at the end.

I don’t think I will have the time to do any anaerobic tests due to numbers and coaches??

Any feedback or suggestions is always appreciated.

Fergus I would love to read that article, sounds interesting
