GAA Warm Up Guide
Injuries in Gaelic games are inevitable due to the nature of the sport.
It is a physically demanding sport that involves running at high speed multiple times throughout a game, as well as making contact when tackling other players.
By implementing injury prevention exercises to your warm up, you can avoid the most common injuries to the knee, ankle, hamstrings, quadriceps and groin.
In addition, these exercises will also improve your performance, such as speed and jumping.
The Sports Institute of Northern Ireland have produced an injury prevention programme called the Activate GAA Warm Up.
It has been shown to reduce sports injuries by up to 50% when implemented regularly into a team’s pre-training and match day warm up.
