RAMP is a method of preparing our bodies for the task that we will be undertaking and is used by elite coaches and athletes. RAMP is structured around maximising the efficiency of warm up time to not only prepare for the upcoming activity, but to develop key movement patterns that improve sport specific performance and encourage continued long term athletic development.
This week will see us focusing on ground fielding techniques. As the ball will not always be coming to us in the air it is important to know how to stop, gather, retrieve and return the ball with efficiency and accuracy.
Cool downs are increasingly neglected and without consistent practice of them at the end of your sessions, it will lead to a negative impact on future sporting performance, due to injury or poor technique, resulting in inefficient body functioning.
