Welcome to best_fullback's training blog 2.0!
Hello and welcome to my training blog 2.0! Those unfamiliar with my old blog back from 2009, charting my course to try and become a fly-half after years of being labelled as the cursed 'utility back', can access it here
. This is my training blog in which I will chronicle my training routine to hopefully help people here on TRF! So here is my general goal:
After now finishing university and having not played Rugby Union for nearly 2 years (did have one season playing League), I am absolutely itching to get back into playing again. The general aim is still the same from the previous blog: to play as a fly-half. However, since completing the last blog the transitional issues are no longer as important as they were. Because of this, I intend to focus on fitness and weight training to get me back up to the level of fitness I was at before I finished playing, as well as doing more in-depth analysis of the fly-half game including general kicking, goal kicking and all other facets of play.
Whats in it for you:
I will be writing frequent entries to the blog to gain insight into my training, I will hope you can offer constructive feedback also. I will be posting the up the gym routines I am doing, training sessions and drills, reviews of drills and equipment, my nutrition as well as detailed results over the course of the training. Hopefully this will help in decisions for training and choices you make in pre-season leading up to the coming season.
Here are my vital stats:
Unlike the last blog I will now be including a contents section below with links to every entry I make, so you now won't have to scroll through page after page to find a relevant entry. I hope anyone reading finds the blog helpful and informative, and please feel free to leave any comments or questions!
