Called into Lathlain the other day on the off chance they were training but was the wrong day but caught up with one player there and chatted to him for a bit. The boys have a new strength and conditioning coach who’s an interesting character. Competes in Strongman competitions, came to us from Peel. Jeremy Hogg (Hoggy) is his name. 18 years experience in sports science. So I expect the boys to be packing on a few kilo’s of muscle this pre season. They’ve been training 3 nights a week, they break now for Xmas and resume on the 10th Jan. Mon, Wed, Friday’s. 

The player I spoke to sees Hugg playing in the midfield. The gym looks good, a hell of a lot better than what they’ve had over the years. Get stuck into it boys.

I believe Hoggy is a Matt Barber type. He was at Peel which may explain why they looked so much fitter than we did.
My mail indicates that the whole squad are looking very fit with some signifcant "bulk ups" including Jaidyn Hunter which is good news. He could have a real breakout season, hopefully. 
Perhaps we will compete on more level playing field with teams like Subiaco in the physicality stakes..
Cannot see Hugg fitting into the midfield unless we have multiple injuries...heaven forbid. Adds depth at best unless Mossy finds a role for him.
I hope that "bulk ups" are not too overdone to the point of sacrficing pace.

Let's hope by bulking up you mean the players are for saking arm day for a few leg days Smokey......

My mate was Perth's  part  time fitness guy back in the  early 90s.....he had just finished his Sport & Exercise degree at Edith Cowan at the time and cane with a load of new ideas - power cleans, dead lifts.....he didn't last long though.... because all the senior guys only wanted to do arm days......it did his head in.......

Whatever the programme it seems that the players have bought it. No doubt the club did it's due diligence before appointing him.
On the surface it appears to be a refreshing outlook for a pre-season at MRP. Time will soon tell.

If your new Fitness guy is anything like Matt Barber you've got a good one. Matt was one of the vital ingredients that changed Subi in the early naughties.

Haha Matt Barber, the model of fitness. I don't reckon I've ever seen a bloke look so sad and miserable as that bloke looked during his time at Lathlain. At least he got to know how most of us long suffering Demon loyals felt.

There's not too many of them around at the minute DF.  Chad Jones from Claremont 10 years ago and Keitel came close to 80 goals this year but that's about it.
