The aim is to monitor the physical condition of the players, so that it can be detected as early as possible if there are indications of injury or other problems.
After undergoing a busy agenda by competing twice a week, #GarudaSelect Physical Coach, Jake Fitzsimmons, conducted physical tests on the players. The aim is to monitor the physical condition of the players, so that it can be detected as early as possible if there are indications of injury or other problems.
According to Coach Jake, this test is carried out several times to find out the development of the players' physical condition. Besides detecting fitness problems, the results of this physical test will also help the coaching team to more easily design an exercise program.
"We have Done some basic physical tests. This was done at the start of the season and is now being done again to monitor how the players are progressing. The coach can also determine the portion of training that suits the player's needs in the gym," said Coach Jake.
"There is a hop test whose function is to train synchronization between the right and left legs. There is also a core training that trains balance. Then we also conduct an ankle muscle flexibility test with the knee to wall," added Jake.
With a tight schedule to compete, physical fitness is an essential requirement that every player must have. For this reason, the coaching team always monitors the conditions of all the players one by one, so they can perform optimally in the match. After the players did the above tests, the good news is that all players are basically in fit conditions.
"So, we try some training models in order to improve the performance of the players. The point is to monitor how the physical condition of the players and so far they are in good condition. In addition, the test also helps them avoid various possible injuries," said Coach Jake continued.
