Quick Tip: Avoid the Tyranny of Simplicity

Filed in:

It's easy on the Internet to be reductive. It's easy to say "just practice harder and you will be fine". its easy because it appeals to our deep desire to keep things simple.

Cricket practice is basically a simple thing: it's about volume and repetitions and practicing more. The more you catch the better a catcher you become.

You can stop there and do pretty well.

Use These Better "Fillers" at Nets to Improve Fitness and Keep Injuries Away

It's a simple and effective training method to add "filler" exercises to net sessions to help with fitness training. You know the type of thing; adding in press ups and sprints between balls to increase fatigue and bump up fitness. Here is a perfect example. We have done this kind of work for years.

I'm sure if I asked you to name a few simple things players could do, you quickly think of exercises like press ups, chin ups, squats and lunges. How about we add a few more into the mix that will also prevent injury. Plus, it gets a bit dull doing lunges, so why not mix it up?

Naturally, you won't want to run fillers at every nets you do. It depends on your goal for the session, but the fact is that these movements tick a lot of boxes: They save time, they reduce injury and they test your technique under fatigue. If you want to do those things, get going!
