The simple way to get fit for cricket

I admit it. I throw a lot of information about cricket fitness at you. It can be confusing to know what to do next.

I even confuse myself sometimes.

But there is a simple way to get fit for cricket (apart from subscribing of course).

The secret is nothing more that this:

Just start

It doesn't matter if you have the right balance of exercises or how much rest you are getting. It's doesn't matter if you are running too slowly or if one exercise routine is better than another.

All that matters is that you get going somehow, someway and once you start you keep going.

You can work out the details of the journey on the way (with my help if you like, I'm on the same journey).

It will make you a better cricketer, better looking and better feeling. And that's the simplest thing of all to understand.

Ha, nice. Yeah, if you want to feel better, play better, look better - just MOVE.
Sitting still won't make you better at very much.

The longest journey starts with a single step after all.

I'm a school level cricketer, and usually get only about a day off skills practice (nets for school/academy). I try to do some fitness training whenever I get the time, but usually the maximum I can get is 1 session a week. Could you advise what best to do in this 1 session to keep up my fitness?(I'm an all rounder- fast bowler & middle order batsman)?

Tough question, I sort of answer it here but if you only have one session go for full body training of athletic movements. Do some conditioning and strength work, don't forget to stretch. Try and stick with it because it will be hard to see improvements in just one session a week, but it is worth it.
