lots of good lads involved this year and a good manager in Martin, what are our chances of getting a few wins in Leinster?

What is your obsession with going to the gym, football is needed.
It's Gaelic FOOTBALL, not Gaelic gym....

well explain this to me how far has your method gotten this county in the last 50 years, its that sort of backward thinking that has meant Wicklow football has being nothing but a side note. I'm merely suggesting the new wave of thinking and how we should implement coaching techniques but top of those would be a gym programme. Ample evidence of big strong teams succeeding, its hard to cope with physicality. the only important part of the implementation is that lads get symmetry in there bodies, we need to perhaps different training splits such as upper/lower or chest/back its highly discretionary to the manager but this is the new age of gaelic football, don't get left behind!

Agree you need some gym work in pre season but that's it.That won't turn a fellow into a footballer as far as I can see very few are been thought the basics of the game like catching the ball and been able to find a man with a thirty yd foot pass sounds simple but at the present moment it's none existent in Wicklow were unable to win a game at any level.

please explain these concept that is so prevalent in what I believe is a very largely uneducated group involved in management of teams around Wicklow but the also extends around the country, what is this idea that six weeks exposure to gym during pre season is seemingly sufficient for a season the muscle needs regular overload and constant regular expose to resistance training in order to maintain and develop, therefore making progress for your six weeks of 'pre season' is all but completely lost 2 months later into your 9/10 month season it just seems ludicrous that in this day and age with the templates that exist in sports like rugby where they have so much more sophisticated programing even at the club level of the game. Still GAA stays hidden in the dark ages of training methods afford to move forward, seems only in the last couple of years there has come a realisation that they there is a world outside of running laps of the football pitch that constitutes conditioning
