Field hockey training program: Why is the core so important for field hockey athletes?
Why training the core of the body is so important in field hockey? If we take under consideration how complex our sport is from a mechanical point of view, we can find the answer. The core works predominantly when we hit the ball on the forehand, on the reverse, when we scoop the ball, when we send a drag flick and so on.
In addition to all the fundamental and more advanced technical skills, our body core is vital when it comes to being fit for hockey. You need to have a strong, fast and powerful body if you want to become an outstanding field hockey player. Furthermore we can say that core balance is a key factor to prevent injuries while playing. If your body lacks of proper balance, you increase the risk of getting injured, therefore we suggest you to try the 4 training routines shared by the ladies’ team of San Silvestre Sport.
