Shane Flynn – The Ultimate Guide to Speed Development for GAA Players

I’ve been kicking a ball since I could take my first steps & just like you, I love nothing more than getting out on the pitch & performing to the best of my ability for my local club, St. Lomans, Mullingar in Co. Westmeath. Over the last 10 years, I have helped thousands of athletes improve their strength, fitness, performance and rehabilitation across a wide range of sports including working with some of the best GAA players in the country such as Conor McManus & James O’Donoghue.

This eBook is a combination of thousands of hours that I’ve spent researching & testing various approaches to speed development & performance on myself & hundreds of my clients over the last 10 years. I am constantly researching, adapting & challenging the status quo & traditional methods to develop a better way for my clients to achieve results.

My aim within this ebook is to help any GAA players and coaches around the country and beyond who want to develop a better understanding of how to enhance your speed and performance. How can we be as functionally fit as possible to enhance our on-field performances to give our clubs and counties the best chance of winning?

“Should I run 5kms every day or should I sprint?”

“How do I get faster?“

“What's the best running to do if you play midfield?”

These are some of the most common questions I get asked every day on Instagram but to get the results you want, you need to develop a greater understanding than I could possibly provide over a couple of text messages. In this eBook, I hope to give you a greater understanding of speed development, particular training methods and routines that you can implement to enhance your speed and how your particular position may impact on the type of training you should focus on.

This eBook is the perfect starting point that will give GAA players & coaches enough information to make significant progress on their own but only scratches the surface in terms of the depth of knowledge, training approaches and the specific help that I share with personal clients and practice myself.
