@St Kevin it sounds like you have had some first hand dealings with Bohdan? but i think regardless of who Riley has chosen to take charge of him and drive him through the off-season is great, (not sure if he has done anything similar before?).
Hopefully it is not just a case of to put his best foot forward for a new club.
As I have said before I'd like him to
stay another year with Tige's but would understand if Riley or Richmond came to another conclusion.

My comment was regarding Woodford, not Bohdan.

For what it’s worth, looks like Riley has appointed this bloke for specialist strength and conditioning training over the off season.
Ex Tiger Higgins used him pre drafting and was a big wrap for him although I know the bloke had a big fall out with Higgins running coach, Bohdan Babachek who is a legend.
Anyway looks like Riley has a rocket up him and wants to improve which is a positive

Been around elite sport for a hell of a long time has Babijczuk. Don't give a stuff is he's a complete A hole, probably needs to have a fair bit of A hole ingrained to push athletes into the hurt area of fitness training to improve their levels.
Well done to R2D2 for at the very least putting himself out there n trying to find ways to improve his fitness levels.

I made a similar mistake in my comments above but it is actually a bloke called Woodford who is his trainer but @Dont Argue made reference that said trainer had a falling out with Bohdan Babachek.
Higgins used Woodford pre-draft and Bohdan Babachek to improve his fitness in the off-season after his 2018 season.
As mentioned good on Riley for getting someone.

Can have elite fitness which gets you to a certain level and still be poo at footy. Same with Higgins and I suspect same with RCD.

So to elaborate, the story goes that Higgins decided to change his fitness program and to concentrate on speed and agility moving away from strength and power
Woodford goes on social media and unceremoniously pots both Higgins, his dad and his running coach Bohdan Babachek.
Higgins was a young first year player and didn’t need some wannabe ranting about him being deluded and ungrateful.
Apparently a very ordinary bloke but does some well regarded work in the field of power lifting/strength work.

You can hire all the running coaches in the word but the reality is that they make very little difference
