Competitive fencers are being invited to a new 6-week programme of ADP Strength and Conditioning sessions on Wednesday evenings. These will restart on the 20th of January, 2021.
To help you during the latest lockdown we are again making some of our Athlete Development Programme online strength and conditioning sessions available to the British fencing community. S& C specialist George Morris will be sharing some expertise from BF’s ADP knowledge base to help you through the next few weeks, in anticipation of your return to fencing.
Here’s some feedback from one of the fencers who took part in the first set of six sessions last year, “I really enjoyed this. Even though I am a veteran I have used the lockdown opportunity to learn more about my sport and this has been great. Whatever age you are you do not stop being competitive. Thanks, George for some great sessions.”
The sessions are designed for competitive fencers, they are not suitable for beginners or inexperienced fencers. There is a minimum age of 14 and U18s will need to be supervised by a parent or guardian.
The sessions run on Zoom on Wednesday evenings with a 10-15 minute presentation, a 5 min Q&A on educational topics, 40-45 minutes of practical application and general fencing focused bodyweight home training.
All sessions include physical exercises that will be a progression from the previous week.
There is homework, not reviewed but an opportunity for you to take ownership of your own training.
The sessions are limited to 100 people to allow for feedback, you will need to register in advance using the link that has been emailed to all members with an up-to-date Compete membership.
