Could easily have been our new SC coach too.It's unmistakeable how many of them have got PTs over the off-season; Noble must have laid out his expectations pretty clearly, and while Brady is cleaning up the S&C side of things, the message seems to be no excuses, get your own programs and come back fit(ter)
Maybe also that the gyms are all cottoning on to this as a promotional vehicle. Been increasing over the last few years I reckon.Is it possible COVID restrictions are playing a part in it? IIRC there are carveouts for elite athletes that allow them to train and use gyms etc, but does it have to be hand in hand with a PT or something perhaps? Genuinely don't know, but it's been startling just how many players are involved in one program or another in their offseason.
This is it, players have been doing various extras in offseasons for eons. This is just a more visible form of it.It might also be possible that players did this in previous years, but the prevelance of social media nowadays is just highlighting what early training is undertaken.
Good on the guys though. I wouldn't begrudge them for taking a few more weeks off to relax and get some mental R&R!
