High Intensity Stress in GAA

In todays modern GAA world the demands on the body are increasing steadily.

Many players in all codes are being asked to train 3 or 4 times a week with possibly 2 or even 3 high intensity matches as well.

In sub sections we will look at the UPPER BODY areas and the LOWER Body areas and in this way build up a library of information specifically geared to GAA Athletes.
