About this Event
As part of the Belfast Boxing Strategy, IABA Ulster Branch are pleased to announce a series of Online Strength & Conditioning Webinars for boxing club coaches from Belfast to support them with their development.
Workshop 1: Laying the Foundations for Long Term Athletic Development
Date: 23 February 2021 Time:7.00-9.00pm
Many boxers face issues with poor posture and movement as a result of excessive muscle tightness which brings a lack of joint mobility. This workshop will cover basic assessments of posture and flexibility. The workshop will progress to cover exercises to form a mobility programme consisting of foam rolling and stretching drills.
Workshop 2: Training to Improve Muscle Strength
Date: 02 March 2021 Time:7.00-9.00pm
Total body strength is important for the boxing athlete. Strength becomes the foundation upon which power and speed will be built. This workshop will cover basic assessments of muscle strength before progressing to cover the exercise technique of exercises within a body weight strength programme, which can be completed without access to a gym.
Workshop 3: Training to Improve Muscle Power
Date: 09 March 2021 Time:7.00-9.00pm
Total body power is an essential component of fitness for the boxing athlete. This workshop will cover basic assessments of muscle power before progressing to cover the exercise technique of exercises within a body weight power programme, which can be completed without access to a gym.
The aim is all those who register, take part in all 3 Webinars which will be delivered by William Moore, Performance Services Officer with the Ulster University in consultation with the Northern Ireland Sports Institute’s Damien Martin HP Physiologist and Robbie Bremner HP Strength & Conditioning Coach.
One ticket to be registered per person which covers them for all 3 workshops. Each workshop invite will go out in advance of the workshop taking place. The online platform is Zoom.
