Barry Corr wasn't training with the full squad this morning. he was doing his own workout with a trainer/physio, a rope and a pole (no eastern european jokes please). Does anyone know why. Injured already?
I'm guessing he's doing this:


"Originally developed for specific combat sports such as football and Mixed Martial Arts, heavy rope training (or rope battling) is making it mainstream. If you’re looking for highly effective, back-to-basics type of conditioning that brings a new twist to your fitness routine, this is it.

Along with increasing your strength, power and endurance, the constant motion of rope battling will floor you with a muscle-toning, metabolic workout unlike any other. You’ll be shocked at how fast a few quick whips can get you to your maximum heart rate."

Wouldn't read too much into it i.e. injury. Just gives a good whole body workout to improve stamina, core and strength. Could all be part of Brown's plan to turn him into a big strong, even more commanding target man!
i think he was just getting the clubs meet the blues day tug of war contest ready .... at one end we have Ben Clarkson , Brian Dear and Dave Jobson , at the other end Freddy Eastwood .... looks to be a close match up
probably doing that to avoid injury, we know corr has knee and back issues, if he felt a twinge he may have asked for a less stressful workout
Could well also be that there is only 1 set of equipment for it, and so the players break off individually during sessions to do it.
