Training for Rugby
The demands of the game of rugby are extensive and include a huge
range of activities such as short sprints, slow jogging, acceleration, use of upper body strength, fast striding,
jumping, walking, changing direction, rapid recovery, and the ability to interchange between any of these
activities on demand.
As a result, all of the energy-producing systems within the body are placed under a
certain degree of stress along with a high level of demand placed on the muscular system.
An elite rugby
player needs to be an all-round athlete and weight training routines are just one way we can suppliment
our regular training to achieve this.
