Strength Training For Sport
There are now few sportsmen who do not appreciate the value of a well-directed strength training programme as a means of improving performance.
Some, however, are a little vague as to whether or not the training would be valuable for them individually and, even if it were, how to set about training.
On Thursday, 27 March, at 5 p.m. at the Gym. Mr. Brian Mahoney will give a short lecture, with demonstrations, on the values and range of strength training for players of all strenuous games and sports, and anyone else interested in increasing physical strength.
