Getting in shape for rugby is no easy task. It is a sport that requires you to have an abundance of speed, strength, power, endurance, skill and mental toughness to carry you through the entire 80 minutes. So what is the secret to this?
I believe there is, and it not some bodybuilding routine that is focusing on building “mirror muscles”. If you are all show and no go in rugby you will not last very long. There is much more to a Rugby workout than that.
It’s no coincidence that at the elite level professional teams have specialists for every aspect of rugby strength training and conditioning. They are investing money into these teams, and realize the dramatic effect that a player’s conditioning can have on his game.
Now do you have to hire five different trainers, all with different specialties to take program your rugby workout? Well you could, but chances are that is not a viable option. However, I have found an alternative that brings all that knowledge to you. You can finally learn how to get leaner, stronger, and faster in a short amount of time.
Finally everything you need to develop blazing speed, functional dynamic strength, tackling power and the gas to dominate your opponent in every phase of play.
John Lark has put together “Get Fit for Rugby”. It is a complete training system to help coaches and players set up their rugby workout and dominate on the pitch. It is a 16 week, step by step program that you can use immediately. The program is easily tailored to your specific position. It comes in an easy to use format, including all exercises, details and exactly what and how you are to do it.
If you are serious about your game, you need this for your rugby workouts.
