What can any of the county lads squat,deadlift,and bench?I looked at a trial tests to get past the first round inductions for the NFL and its serious stuff,go check it out!I reckon Conor Mc Teigue from Ballinamore would be head of any of the County lads by a long way!Prove me wrong!

There are standard GAA players programmes that any player thats interested in winning will follow

It's builds week on week

So of you bench 85kg 50 times today tomorrow you go for 51 or even 52 lifts

Next week your benching 90kg

Everyone varys a big lad 6'4" might only be able to lift 50kg while a standard 5'10" leitrimer could possibly do 3 times that

Speed and skill on the ball is more important

However the modern game does require a fitness and conditioning programme minimum 5 nights a week during winter
