Principles of cricket fitness

Filed in:

Fitness for cricket is both simple and complex. Simple because it is built on certain principles that anyone can understand. Complex because there are a million ways to interpret those principles and turn them into a training plan.

It seems to me that a good place to start would be to understand these principles so you can see if your fitness programme is the best for your needs.

That's why this week I'll be discussing the central principles of all fitness training.

It's basic physiology in action, but you don't need a degree in sports to understand these principles. If you want to improve your game they are a cornerstone of any training you do. Think of them as a yardstick to bring yourself back to when all else fails.

Here are the topics. Click the links to get the tips:
