Jennings helps deliver exercises to Academy players
The England international is helping the Club's youngsters stay active during the coronavirus pandemic
Keaton Jennings is hosting a series of fitness classes with Lancashire’s Age Group sides in association with David Lloyd as the Club aims to touch base with its youth cricketers during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Lancashire and England opening batsman has instructed fitness classes with a number of the Academy sides in conjunction with Strength and Conditioning Coach, Tom Webster, and Performance Director, Mark Chilton.
The left-hander shared an intense session with the senior Academy team before being joined by fellow Red Rose batsman Rob Jones to put the boys’ and girls’ under-10s, 11s and 12s teams through their paces.
Jennings’ class was a High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workout, with no equipment and minimal space required to ensure inclusivity for all ages and abilities.
The session finished with a question and answer session, with the Academy stars handed the opportunity to ask Jennings questions on all things cricket, life away from the game and how he is coping during lockdown.
Lancashire Cricket’s Assistant Coach and Performance Director, Mark Chilton, said: “They have been really worthwhile, engaging sessions led by Keaton and I’d like to thank him for showing the willingness to get involved.
“Staying in touch with our Age Group sides is key. They are part of the Red Rose family, and their physical and mental well-being are of paramount importance to us.
“The initial feedback we have had from all who took part has been extremely positive and, in addition to these weekly physical sessions, we are looking at delivering other interactive session that we feel would benefit our County Age Group teams during these challenging times.”
