Training Camp with Jordan Jones

This weekend the London Blitz traveled to Friends School in Saffron Waldon for one of the most important events of the season - our annual training camp.

With only two weeks to go until the first games for both the A Team (Farnham Knights at Home) and B Team (Essex Spartans at Home), the pressure was on to prepare ourselves mentally and physically.

We asked Blitz Tight End Jordan Jones to keep a diary of his experiences over the weekend...

Day one is done!

So many new faces, so much talent, so excited to get stuck in tomorrow morning.

Last season I was here as a Linebacker, and this year I'm back as a Tight End. O & D are very very different but the drive we have as a collective team is the same. We want to win, all the time, and look good doing it!

It's great to catch jokes with the guys and bond, but work time is fast approaching.

It's 23:00 and I'm going to get some kip ready for my alarm at 4:45.

With preparation, passion and execution we will be successful!

Welcome to @londonblitz 2016 training camp.

Pre-season starts now!

Last week the London Blitz re-grouped in Finsbury Park for the first official fitness session of the 2016 season. 

After some impressive (if occasionally slippery) performances in the 40 yard, shuttle and 3-cone drills, the team took to the gym see who would be joining the 1000 lb Club this season.

Huge congratulations to all the guys who lifted a combined total of over 1000 lb (454 Kg) in their 1RM Bench Press, Squat and Deadlift, especially to father-to-be Lew Jones (below) who lifted a total of close to 1500 lb, including a club record Bench Press of 195 Kg.


Plenty of work still to do but we’re off to a great start!
