Training at Nidd Valley Juniors

Over 12s Training

The older groups training differs from the younger, we trail away from sports hall athletics to different training techniques. Primarily conducting running we split the group into two abilities doing the same training just at their own comfortable thresholds.

Over 12’s sessions start off with a warm-up of the key muscle groups followed by a 30-minute intense training session. Then finally a cool down and discussion about goals and races which are coming up at the weekend.
