How Safe is Your Fast Bowling from a Career-Ending Injury?
Revoultionary Cricket S&C Coach Reveals the Specific Training Programme to Bowl Faster and Prevent Injury
Fast bowling puts huge demands on your body. You risk a premature end to your bowling career through huge impact and twisting forces every time you bowl. If you have ever felt the ache of a sore back or shoulder after a bowling session you already know how awful that feels.
You see it even at the top level, where International fast bowlers drop like flies under the intense pressure of trying to bowl quickly. And these are the guys with access to the top strength and conditioning trainers.
It's no wonder you are concerned about how exactly you can stay on the park. It's a problem that is solved with this online coaching course.
You may have even experienced the frustration of an injury yourself. There is nothing worse than feeling mentally up for the fight against batsmen, but having a strain or soreness that stops you from playing. You just get to fume on the sidelines while someone else takes your place. At best you miss game experience, at worst, some other bowler moves ahead of you in the pecking order and leave you playing a lower level.
It's a nightmare and even if you have never had it yourself you are sure to have seen someone who has.
What's the anwer to this problem?
Problem 1: Does just bowling work?
You could try and keep it simple and traditional and just bowl.
It's a method that worked for many fast bowling legends in the old days, and one that's still put forward even today. Many young bowlers take this route.
And many young bowlers also end up with stress fractures in their low back.
In the old days you would just play through the pain and hope it didn't finish you off.
If you are lucky, that could happen to you as well. And if you want to rely on hope and luck to get you to the top of the fast bowling ladder you are welcome to stop reading here. There is nothing in this online coaching course for you. That is your gamble to take on your body and career.
But what if you want to do something?
If you are still reading, the chances are you want to take control about bowling fast and remaining injury free. There is a place for bowling and building up stamina, but that is certainly not where it ends.
Many bowler's are in this position and even start training. They go to the gym or they use bodyweight exercises like press ups and sit-ups to get fit to bowl.
While this is certainly a step up from the "just bowl" method, it's still not going to help you to bowl faster or keep injury away.
Gym trainers work from templates for general health and fitness and don't understand the needs of fast bowlers. Even if they are sympathetic to the fitness needs of cricketers, they have not worked with enough to understand the art of programme design for the paceman.
Plus they cost a fortune. Have you seen the hourly rate of a personal trainer? Yikes!

Problem 3: Can I train myself?
For many, the answer to this is to do some research on google and try to become an instant expert on fitness for fast bowling. You have probably already got this far yourself, so you know how it is a tantilising yet frustrating experience.
There is so much advice online - much of it conflicting or incomplete - that you don't know quite where to start. It's a needle in a haystack the size of Eden Gardens. Individual bits of advice seen fine in themselves, but how to you put that into a workout?
And how do you ensure one thing you are doing doesn't conflict with another method from a different trainer?
You could go to university, get your diplomas then spend a few years trying methods on yourself and other fast bowlers. But that really realistic unless you want to be a strength coach instead of a fast bowler.
So where do you go next to end the mental pain of hunting for answers and the physical pain of injury?
Steff Jones played professional cricket for a lifetime before becoming a respected strength coach. He transformed firstly himself and secondly a string of professional and upcoming cricketers through his ground-breaking strength and conditioning programme.
