Interstate I understand. I'm referring to the players based in Melbourne.
Yes you can't eliminate ALL risk, but for those based in Melbourne, why increase the risk of injury to them by having them do weights programs outside the club.

There is risk wherever someone trains. I’m sure the club is aware of what they’re doing outside of the club. Just be thankful they’re putting in the hard yards.

Lebron spends millions every year on personal fitness, diet, etc. I don’t think the Lakers are too worried.

The more resources available to the player, whether it be at the club or private is beneficial to the player.

im most likely wrong on this but isnt there a rule from the players association that the players have to have a certain amount of time away from the club over the off season

Yep, these are players opting to do extras. I'd imagine programs would be looked at by the club first but I think it's fantastic that they are showing hunger and drive.

The club would also dictate the overarching results of the workout. For example, zero benefits in building 5kgs of muscle mass in November and the club needs you lighter so strips it in December.

Yeah, these guys, in some cases, are multimillion dollar investments from the club. I suspect everything like this is ticked off well in advance by the S&C team. Maybe even different gyms and PTs strike deals with clubs to send their players to them. It's not like they're using rusty dumbells in Dominic's shed who's also selling them a bit of the good stuff he got from Danky on the side.

Im fairly certain this is to circumvent the players association CBA.

They have to have a minimum period away from the club, including S&C coaches etc.

Christian Woodford also isn’t some main stream personal trainer. He works with footballers, olympians, basketballers etc, he could get a gig as head of S&C at any AFL club if he wanted to leave the private sector.
