Lead Physiotherapist Fran Clarkson discusses the squad’s fitness programme as they start a busy pre-season schedule.
After returning to training last week, the Derbyshire squad now embark on a near two-month fitness training schedule until Christmas, led by Clarkson and Strength & Conditioning Coach, Jonty Norris.
Designed to provide insights into individual and squad fitness, this busy period will help shape future tailored programmes as strength and conditioning, as well as physiotherapy, continue to play key roles during the season.
Clarkson said: “This period is an opportunity for us to get a grip of where they are fitness wise and it gives us an idea of where each player is at. Information for the squad as a whole and as individuals helps the strength and conditioning guys to maximise performance as we tailor our winter schedules for each player.
“This is our little block before the squad are under the coaching team, in terms of cricket skills, after Christmas. We’ll still feed in, but this is our block until Christmas and we hope to make the most of it to ensure the lads are in prime shape come April.”
