Up Your GAAme is a programme designed for ladies playing GAA who are looking to maximise their performance and improve their body compositon in the process.
This programme is specifically for those who are based in the Middle East and will be in their Pre Season period.
It is designed by myself, Alana, and I am a Strength & Conditioning Coach and have been playing football in the Middle East since 2012. I know the differences between playing GAA at home and in the Middle East; the energy requirements, the energy systems used in training, the common injuries that occur and the style of tournament that’s played.
The plan will run from September 2nd – October 3rd, bringing players right up to the first tournament of the year in Dubai.
It is for all levels from senior right down to junior C and social; as long as your goal is to improve your personal performance and body composition in your game – you’ll get something from this programme.
As I mentioned, it is specific to the game here in the Middle East; that means it is catered to the climate, the shorter games, the increased intensity and the tournament style games that are played in comparison to Ireland.
The month long plan includes the following:
–2x gym sessions per week to do outside your team training. (The focus of these changes every few weeks)
–1x pitch session per week to do outside your team training. (Again, the focus changes as we get closer to that first tournament).
-Info on what to eat pre- and post- training and on training days vs rest/low intensity days.
–Sample Shopping Lists
–Hydration and how you must be taking it seriously in this climate and ways to make that manageable.
-The importance of sleep/stress on performance.
–Alcohol and how to factor it into your week without hindering your progress (too much).
–Tournament Day Guidelines
-How to track your menstrual cycle and tweak your nutrition/training around each phase of the cycle.
