GPP – Considerations for Athlete Preparation

In this episode Stewart takes a look at the GPP, a traditional time for coaches and athletes to layer fitness into their athletes, but is this really being done correctly and what the athletes need?

A GPP should really be part of a long term plan that is improving the athlete year on year and not some generic period to simply do long reps after long reps, as a coach you should be considering the elements and qualities your athlete already has and what is missing/lacking and really what do you want to get out of your athlete in the time to come in their build up to the following season.

This isn’t saying fitness from long reps isn’t required or cant work but to be more aware of really what you want from your athletes and where they already may be.
