The complimentary nature of the Bulgarian Bag work and all the pressing was effective. The bag, especially the heavier ones, taxed the grip tremendously. The strict press, bench press, and push-ups were a welcomed relief, but equally as difficult if the player decided to ‘go for it’ on each set.


At GP we try to avoid any and all flexion work, which for most is how they condition their abdominal wall (i.e. crunches). One example of a core exercise we like is called the Medicine Ball Walk-out. Start with the ball under the shoulders. Walk it out in front of you as far as you can stabilize or as far as the arms can support you. The stronger one’s core/arms the further away they can walk the ball. Start with short distances and progress slowly. Today it was made even more challenging coming off six sets of max reps pressing work.
