CRICKET

POWER WITH TECHNIQUE

It takes a high degree of body awareness, muscular strength and core stability to play the game of cricket with power and efficiency.  The more efficient you are the faster you can run, the quicker you can bowl, the more power you can produce from the bat, the faster you can accelerate and the faster you can recover from hard efforts. If your core is weak, your muscles are unbalanced and your form is poor, then pain and injury in the back, shoulder, hip, leg, knee and ankle can occur - it's so frustrating not being able to train because of injury.

Pilates For Sports is the ultimate whole body exercise system - it can help to improve core strength and muscle balance, and is always done in the context of how to improve your cricket. In this way it becomes very clear how Pilates For Sports can play a big role in not only preventing injury, but also in improving performance. If you're looking to overcome some of these issues or simply keen to take the next step in your cricket, Pilates For Sports might just be the solution you have been looking for.

Our programs are customised to your individual needs. We develop a program that will best enable you to achieve the core strength and muscle balance required to help you realise your cricket goals.

  • Maximum efficiency
  • Optimal power output, and 
  • Reduced chance of injury

So why not take the Pilates For Sports challenge to "Be Your Best".

POWER

Pilates For Sports will strengthen your core, develop strong balanced muscles around the joints and enable you to develop a strong stable base. This will enable you to produce more power when you bat, bowl and field.

EFFICIENCY 

Inefficient movement means that you are using more energy than you need to bat, bowl, field or run between the wickets. The result is that you will fatique faster and your form will drop. Pilates for Sports teaches cricketers to be aware of how they are currently moving and then helps them build a strong core. This will ensure that every bit of power they generate, goes into their bowling, batting, fielding and running stride. This comes about through the strengthening of the powerhouse and knowledge of how to engage it correctly, when you are playing. This controlled efficient movement will also reduce the chance of injury.

STABILITY

To help you understand the benefits that a strong and stable core can provide to cricketers, picture a cannon on a canoe out in the middle of a lake. Now, if that cannon fires, it won’t be able to shoot very far because the canoe will wobble and capsize, as it can’t handle the force of the cannon. In this scenario the cricketers arms and legs are the cannon and their wobbly core is the canoe on a lake, which can't handle the power being produced because of its instability. However, put that cannon on a concrete platform and the result is very different. From that stable base, maximum power can be directed to the cannonball, resulting in the cannon being able to fire to it’s full potential. Just as a cricketer with a strong and stable core can transfer the maximum force generated to batting, bowling, fielding, sprinting between the wickets, and quick response in the field.

BALANCE

Many of the performance and injury issues cricketers experience, arise from muscle imbalance. When we talk about an athlete having a muscle imbalance, we mean that some muscles are overworking and other muscles are not doing their fair share of the work. The result is inefficient movement, reduced power output and an increased chance of injury. This is where Pilates can help. Pilates is a perfect way to cross train, as it moves the body in all of the directions it is designed to move, therefore restoring balance. As one of our clients once said: “You don’t need Pilates For Sports to play cricket, but you might play cricket better and with less pain if you do Pilates For Sports”

RANGE OF MOTION

If the range of motion in the shoulders, hips, knees or ankles are limited, then it will increase the likelihood of pain and injury, whilst also impacting the power you can produce. The Pilates For Sports program works to develop an effective range of motion in the whole body, thereby reducing your chance of pain and injury, whilst improving your ability to train and compete with maximum efficiency.

GOOD POSTURE

Posture is rarely thought about, but poor posture will impact a cricketers ability to generate power, maintain good form and breathe efficiently throughout their training or their match. The impact of poor posture long term is an increased chance of injury. Pilates for Sports is designed to improve a cricketers posture, which will improve their performance, help to reduce pain and injury and help you to breathe more efficiently.

REDUCED PAIN & INJURY

If your muscles around a joint are unbalanced and your core is weak, it means that some muscles will have to overwork to produce a movement. Constant repitition of a movement done with poor form can lead to pain and even injury, just think about the number of back and shoulder injuries experienced by cricketers. A strong core will support the back, balanced muscles around the shoulder will ensure the work is spread evenly, therefore reducing the strain on specific muscles. Pilates For Sports will strengthen your core and help you to develop strong balanced muscles, so that you can play efficiently with good form, along with decreased chance of pain and injury.

GOOD FORM

Cricket is all about technique yet many of us don't really think about how to actively engage our core to improve our form. Pilates for Sports makes you aware of how you are currently moving, teaches you how you should be moving, and then gives you the tools to improve your performance.
