In-Season Rugby Program


12-week In-Season Rugby Program incorporating Strength, Speed, Agility and Conditioning elements. Includes 3 separate 4-week training phases focused on Strength, Power and Hypertrophy.


During the rugby season, many athletes complain of losing weight, decreasing performance or suffering from recurring injuries. This 12-week training cycle provides the athlete with the opportunity to avoid all of these problems and more, whilst offering a structured plan that will have you performing better than ever.

The program is made up of 3 phases, which focus primarily on Hypertrophy, Strength and Power, but also encompass speed and conditioning work that will help you to take advantage of optimal windows of trainability throughout the season.

Don’t continue to cycle the same boring training program for the arduous 8-month long season. Why not buy this program and put my many years experience working in elite rugby to good use.

This program is made up of a 3-block cycle focusing on Strength, Power and Hypertrophy. Each of these cycles is 4-weeks long, which makes the total duration 12-weeks, not including deload weeks or rest periods. The program can easily be extended to reach 15-weeks if necessary.
I have worked with a broad range of rugby union players. Some have been elite, some a lot less so. The goal of the program is to offer an elite standard of programming and coaching, to players that would otherwise not be lucky enough to experience it. So for that reason, the program is suitable for amateur, semi-professional and elite-level players.
The conditioning sessions and strength sessions are individualized on a positional basis. There are also tiered exercise progressions based off of the individual’s own personal level of fitness and experience.
This program is perfect for cycling in-season. After completing the 3rd block of training, just begin the strength block once again.
If you have a persistent injury, you will not be able to complete every aspect of this program. As with anything, you may experience some benefit in your unaffected qualities, but I suggest that a more personalized approach would be more beneficial for you. Either consult with a physiotherapist and supplement your rehabilitation with this program. Or alternatively, contact me for a consultation and a more personalized rehabilitation program, in in-person or online coaching.
