Bolton University Physios were busy again last Saturday – with athletes who attended the latest England Wrestling Squad training session, organised by Team Leader Eddy Kavanagh.
When asked at the end of their physio session for some feedback, the physios reported that a lot of the wrestlers seem to have injuries due to not doing any rehab after training sessions.
As a result of this feedback, Eddy Kavanagh is now considering putting on a physio rehab workshop for athletes at some stage in the future, focusing on rehab after after training.
Said Eddy, “At some point, I also want to bring in a sports psychologist who can talk to athletes about instilling a positive mental attitude – so important to winning.”
Also at the training event, some of the wrestlers were given advice on weight lifting by two experts attending the session. The athletes were provided with links to weight lifting clubs near them, as well as specific weight training programmes individualised to the athlete.
There was another good attendance of 19 at the training event.
