Chris Deavin

Athletes over the age of 50 require different training modalities compared to younger athletes.

More emphasis on movement, mobility and flexibility is needed, as well as training the body as a whole and not in individual parts.

My strength & conditioning plan for athletes at 50 or beyond has been designed through coaching senior athletes. And through my own training (yes I am over 50).

My training has changed over the last few years, with a combination of hard training sessions and a good amount of recovery.

This training plan will help maintain and improve your overall body strength, increase mobility, increase cardiovascular fitness and provide the suppleness that we need as we age.

Strength
As we age the ability to stay stronger becomes more challenging. We can no longer just turn up and perform. We need to stay conditioned. My Strong @ 50 & Beyond conditioning program focuses on overall body strength through strengthening the body as one unit and not in individual parts. We are only strong when everything is strong.

Mobility
As we get older the more supple we need to be. A body that is more mobile is a body that will stay strong and injury free. My Strong @ 50 & Beyond conditioning program will not just improve overall body strength, but will also keep you supple and mobile, so any strength you have can be utilised effectively. A immobile body is a weak body.

Cardiovascular Fitness
A strong body needs a strong heart. Without a strong cardiovascular system, your muscular system is limited. My Strong @ 50 & Beyond conditioning program provides a mixture of both cardio and metabolic workouts that will challenge and improve all areas of fitness. Condition your heart and lunges and your body will perform at the highest level.
