Dr Ashley Hamilton
Dr Ashley Hamilton has been appointed Strength and Conditioning Coach for our High Performance and Performance swimmers.
Ashley has a Bachelor of Health Science and Osteopathy at RMIT University. During his studies and post University, Ashley has continued to develop himself in the areas of Strength and Conditioning/Biomechanics and Rehabilitation by undertaking postgraduate and extracurricular workshops.
Ashley’s area of focus for the High Performance and Performance Swimmers will be built upon technique and nailing the basics. I am a big believer in bigger the base higher the peak and for me that starts with technique and execution. With the weights room being merely an accessory to the pool for all Athletes. It is important that we manage fatigue while also providing enough stimulus to ensure the muscular adaptations can be achieved.
Another Principle I believe in, is ensuring we give the Athletes what they are missing. Swimming involves repetition of certain movement patterns. Over time this can compromise the length/tension relationship of muscles surrounding the joints, increasing the probability of injuries. Providing the Athlete exercises to strengthen both frequent movement patterns while also ensuring they receive the neglected movements is vital for both the individual’s performance and joint integrity.
I envisage the swimmers will become more confident in the weights room with more awareness around technique & controlling their body. This execution will allow the individuals to maximise the movements & develop the desired strength, stability & muscular adaptations to improve their performance in the pool.
Ashley also works privately at Myoactive, 1 Vision Drive, Burwood. Further information about Ashley can be found via https://www.myoactive.com.au/ashley-hamilton/
