Academy Update : CaveFit – 31st November
On Sunday 31 November, with the Inverleith pitches unplayable, the Stewart’s Melville Academy under 16 team took part in a fitness session at CaveFit Gym.
The fitness levels of the boys were tested throughout the session as they learned several new lifts and movements which have not yet been introduced into their strength and conditioning programmes. The fitness levels of those who took part will no doubt improve as a result of this vigorous session, and will hopefully aid their performance for the rest of the season.
After the session was completed, Peter Oakden, head coach at CaveFit said: “Job satisfaction levels were at maximum load watching the youth go round the circuit. It was great having them all in to train at the cave – hopefully helping to develop solid and, of course, beneficial habits such as strength & conditioning. I’m sure the morning would have brought the team closer together too, which is great! Well done Joe for organising and great effort by the parents/family for getting the lads in to train! Will hopefully see more of them all in the near future.”
