About Us

Through our experience working with the Western Bulldogs Football Club (AFL/VFL) and the GWV Rebels Football Club (NAB League) - we have come to realise that having the right people in Regional Victoria to help develop  athletes is crucial!  It is a passion of ours to help regional athletes to properly train and recover, helping them compete at the highest level and to be the best athlete they can. 

The biggest thing that we have noticed, no matter where or at what level of sport you play, “An athletes greatest ability is their availability”………to be out on the park/court…..performing in their chosen sport.

Some of the major issues impacting their availability to compete are:

  • Athletes are not conditioning themselves properly and not completing strength training. If they are completing some strength training, it is not individualised, and is based on a body building mind-set, not athletic performance. There is a big difference.
  • Athletes who suffer a significant injury playing their chosen sport – don’t complete their rehabilitation properly and then either never return to that sport, or they return, but can’t play at the same standard or level anymore.

The team at RAD are now bringing to Regional Victoria the same methods and structures used at the professional level to enhance your athletic performance and keep you injury free and available for your sport.

With rowing pre-season schedules starting to heat up it is important that we acknowledge the potential increased injury risk that athletes may have. With the increased workload and the repetitive nature of the sport there are some common overuse injuries that can occur.
* Back
* Ribs
* Shoulder pain
* ITB friction syndrome

Check out our latest blog put together by Steph that helps identify some small tweaks you can add to your program to help reduce the risk of or manage these injuries:

Playing around with new toys out at Fed Uni!
Their Biodex isokentic machine is going to be a fantastic tool to have in Ballarat.
This is the gold standard of assessment when it comes it dynamometer testing - and is used for one of the end stage ACL rehabilitation markers to tick off.
There are loads of different tests that you can do on this machine - Scott Talpey put me through the knee flexion and extension at 60degrees per second/ 180 and 300.
You can then look at peak torque for each test, compare quad to hamstrings ratio as well as many other key variables.
Unreal to have one of these in Ballarat to utilise! 🔥

And as you can tell - it is a max effort test so it’s pretty tough 😂

PATELLA TENDONITIS:

A common injury for any athlete that is completing a high amount of jumping / sprinting or a big running load - it is also often referred to as “Jumpers knee”

We have had a number of court sport athletes in the past couple of weeks come in with some early signs of this knee pain due to increased training loads – so we thought we would put together a little video providing some more information about the injury and ways in which it can be managed.

The exercises provided are just examples of what can be used - a proper structured program should be followed which has been targeted specifically for you. You should also seek further medical help if your knee is getting sorer.

Hopefully you get some good tips to help manage your knee pain.

Contact us to find out some information or to get a detailed explanation on how to perform these exercises.
