During my time as a Strength and Conditioning coach I have worked with athletes at all levels of rugby. From the elite of the elite, to the weekend-warriors, I’ve helped them to stay robust enough to turn in performances on a weekly basis, and in many cases, helped them to improve their performance along the way.
Any decent pre-season program has got to encompass all components of the game. The main goal of pre-season is to recondition your body back to the demands of the sport, in order to prevent injury or poor performance during the season. For this reason, the old school blowouts at the beginning of the season are becoming less and less common. That’s not to say, that your body won’t reap the rewards of a high-volume session every so often. However, it’s got to be progressive and it only works if you have ample time to rest and recover afterwards.
This program gives the amateur player the opportunity to train using a comprehensive, progressive, professional-style approach to all aspects of the pre-season training schedule. This program covers physical testing, weight-training, on-pitch conditioning, speed and agility sessions over an 8-week period.
If you’re interested in peaking your performance on the pitch, or avoiding an early injury that may affect your season, then this program is the one for you.
