Having worked with Steffan for the Rajasthan Royals his knowledge on all aspects of fast bowling is right up there. I wouldn’t hesitate in listening to what he has to say.
Being a fast bowler, I have always been fascinated by various ways to train the body in order to get the most out of it. But not before I met Stef, did I actually realise that it is not about abusing the body with mass load of training, but more about specific training for your body type and bowling style! He has come to these conclusions after years of doing it all by himself and thus his knowledge-field is vast. Everything that he does in terms of designing a fast bowler’s fitness regime has significance and makes a lot of sense even to a layman, its that simple yet effective! I have never been as strong as I am now, and that is after grinding through the whole 6-month domestic season and bowling nearly 500 overs and taking close to 100 wickets across all formats! Thanks for your help Steff.
There are very few cricket coaches who i have come across incorporating training methodology transferring to skills. Steffan being on such coach who has played the game extensively and most importantly has educated himself in human movement patterns and biomechanics closely related to cricket and specifically fast bowlers. I have had the privilege to interact , work and carry forward some the work he has done and Trust me amalgamating fitness with skills is the way forward. All the best wishes Mate. Keep rocking.
Steff for me is simply the best Fast Bowling coach there is. The research, detail and passion he has for it is unsurpassed. I truly believe that his hip/knee classification of bowlers will become the norm and should be being coached to not just other fast bowling coaches but S&C’s as well, to make sure that no harm is being done to the present and future generation of fast bowlers.
He has already changed the training and conditioning landscape for fast bowlers and will continue to do so as he leaves no stone unturned in his research. Quite simply if you get the chance to work with him then jump at it.
Fast bowling coaching under Steffan is just amazing. His drills are scientifically driven, and the coaching plans are meticulously drawn yet personalised to a players strengths, needs and capabilities. In true sense he helps bring the best out of a player and pushes to the performance optimum boundary. He definitely helped me, to be much better in my bowling.
Cricket is allergic to first principles research and hence finding coaches who are willing to sacrifice short term results for more solid overall development are rare. With this background the Rajasthan Royals went about its search for someone who could work on the development of its fast bowlers. The search ended at the door of Steffan Jones.
He has used first principles to come up with a methodology to define bowler types and then uses fundamental research to get them stronger and faster. Each step in the process is based around a combination of science and research around the movements of the human body. We at the Royals are delighted at the progress being made in the development of these bowlers and are fully committed to Steffan for the long haul, as we continue to support him in his endeavours to rewrite the rules around how bowlers are developed now and in the future of our sport.
We,at SIX, are extremely delighted to have partnered with Pacelab. Over the last year, Steffan and his team have visited the academy 3 times and have stayed in continuous touch with our trainers and in certain cases, even the trainees have reached out and they are always accessible and ready to answer questions. The biggest shift I have seen since we started Pacelab at SIX is the mindset shift towards fitness. Even our 10 year olds now look forward to getting fitter and fitness is no more looked upon as a “punishment”. There has been a complete change on how our fast bowlers train and we have been seeing the results across age groups.
