    Hi all,

    I got my hands on a cheap Fitness card and want to start working out, getting ride of the X-mas/ NY belly and starting the new Year sharp.
    Does anybody knows where I can find a decent rugby work out for the gym, preferably for beginners as I will combine the work out with my indoor cricket practice.

  3. Good exercises to do if your short on time/looking to just start out are compound exercises anything where you use more than one muscle. for example:
    Chest Press
    Lat Pull Downs/Chin Ups
    Shoulder Press
    Leg Press/Squats
    Clean and Jerks
    Then throw in some core exercises
    sit up's
    dont know what it's called but holding the extended push up position for extended periods of time.
    And a bit of interval training as well rowing i find is the best
    like 45 sec - 1 min full pace
    1:30 - 2 mins rest
    bout 8-10 intervals

    that should get you started and knacker you out plenty :D
