    I´m looking for a workout for Physical Preparation for Elite-Level Rugby Players for the preseason. With the description of the workout and a planification for at least 1 or 2 months. Someone can send me one?

    The hardest you've ever trained in both you've ever attempted in both cardio-phys and strength, then multiplied by 20.

    For example, only just after recovering from injury with a broken ankle, I watched Jon Clarke, who's never played at elite level yet, sprint the perimeter of a pitch 3 times for warm up.

    You need to be at least that fit.

    We havn't got any pros or fitness instructors on the board unfortunately, however your best bet will be to speak to the instructor at your local gym. They will be able to guide you in a much more effective mannor then anyone on the net can.

    Failing that, searching for the standars you need in top level Football fitness would be enough for the cardio, while you'd need to increase physical strength substantially on your own.

    As for the mental fitness that you'd need for top flight rugby, you're either born with that or you're not.

    Thank you for your answer, i´ll try to find it in the net and then if i can post it here, i know several rugby federations or teams prepare a physical training for preseason that contry players use and that´s what i´m looking for. Here in Spain the Nz coach that trained the Spanish National Team prepared one that was very complete and i had it but i´ve lost it. It explained week by week 6 days training what u have to do to get the best in the workout.
    It has a very well explained workout in weight and running and that´s what in looking for, if someone has one from their teams or from wherever please post it here

    This is the kind of thing the internet will produce in terms of work-outs.

    Yur best bet, as you've alluded to, is talking to people who have competed/currently compete/coach. Even if it's at a lower level, if you gain information on say, low league club rugby work-outs, you can gain a base idea, and work up from there. It'd also start as a nice ctarting block if you're going from out of shape to top tier.

    Get down the pub and start practicing your drinking. When the season starts, if you win you'll need to celebrate and if you lose, you'll need to drown your sorrows.

    If you originally got the information from him or the Spanish National Team organisation, you could try emailing him/them - I'm sure they will have a website somewhere.
