Hoërskool Noordheuwel First and u/16 Boys Hockey Teams to receive Flexband Training
Hoërskool Noordheuwel First and u/16 Boys Hockey Teams, sponsored by PAY EXCHANGE (pty) Ltd, each received 2 JSSA Flexbands and a stretch chart. They will all receive 3 x two-hour sessions with JSSA Flex band trainer, Pierre Assor, to assist with conditioning and prevention of injuries. These are the first sports teams at the school to train with Flexbands.
IT HAS been a “dream” few weeks for Teboho “Oupa” Mohoje as he continues his meteoric rise.
The dream peaked on Tuesday when Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer told the flanker that he would be part of the Springbok match-day squad against on Saturday.
Just last year the 23-year-old was playing Varsity Cup rugby as captain of the University of Free State Shimlas side.
Now the lock-cum-flanker is on the brink of making his Bok debut should coach Meyer bring him on this weekend.
PIERRE SPIES WORKING HARD TO RETURN FULLY FIT IN 2015
In the mean time, Pierre Spies, Bulls captain and Springbok No 8, wants to make a strong impact when he returns fully fit in 2015, which could be his final season in South Africa.
Spies has had a nightmare run with injuries in recent years, with thumb and bicep surgeries forcing the Springbok and Bulls No 8 to spend long spells on the sidelines.
“I’m about halfway through with my recovery plan. I should be ready to play by the start of the 2015 Super Rugby campaign.”
Spies knows it won’t be an easy return to the Springbok fold with the tough competition among the loose forwards. He is using JSSA Flexbands as part of his rehabilitation program and he believes this will motivate him to make a stronger comeback.
SARU has long ago realised the value of Variable Isotonic Resistance training and uses Flexbands as part of their players’ functional conditioning programme, as is evident from this image captured during the Bokke-preparation in Australia. Pierre Assor from JSSA regularly assists with injury rehabilitation and conditioning of SARU rugby players.
On Saturday, 9 August, Pierre Assor from JSSA demonstrated the potential benefits of Flexband training to a JSKA karate Training Squad . The variable isotonic resistance encountered with Flexband training as well as the ability to focus on training specific movements offers incredible benefits to practitioners of all martial arts where flexibility, balance, speed and power are crucial to good performance.
As Flexbands support muscle and joints during exercise, this is a safe and effective way of training even young karateka with very little risk of injury.
