Overtraining

(Oldest Posts First)

Anyone read the article by Luke Keaney. I have to say I wasn't shocked which in itself is shocking. The total lack of coordination between different managers and the lack of science ......

The fact that he was abandoned once her was off the country panel is scandalous.

It struck me that it is only a matter of time before someone takes a case against the gaa for negligence in the same way American football was sued re concussion. The load put on kids bodies is crazy and it is nort being managed. It is only really a problem when you are u20 and in college.

The president of the GAA saying last week nothing can to be done to fix the fixture issue. Horan is a poor president. Brought in the second tier without any real delegating, should have been looking at the Provincial championship restructure

Point taken on second tier however it is off topic. Some kind of monitoring system on elite players trading load must be introduced. The problem really only exists between 16 and 20 when u qualify for multiple teams. Kids are growing as well so it is really critical time in their development
