Many of you are asking questions regarding Rugby Training. Numerous questions about how to get more fit, how to increase the size of ones biceps, how to be a better flanker, etc, etc... It seems there is generally a Medieval-esque veiw towards fitness and weight training. We seem to be stuck in the dark ages where we're told "not to get too bulky, it will only slow you down." Long gone are the days of your dad and grandad, having a pint in the morning and doing laps around the pitch with a cigarette haning off of their bottom lip. We've entered the modern era and rugby is having to play catch up with every other sport of its kind. Growing up in the United States and being a Gridiron (American Football) player from junior high school through university I was constantly exposed to weight training and conditioning practices. As I got older and science and medicine developed newer ideas about training, those would be implemented by our coaches, especially so once I played football for my university. What we need to do is really grasp the idea that Rugby is no different. In fact, Rugby is, by my personal sworn testament, the most demanding sport on this planet. No other sport contains both brutal contact and gut wrenching endurance. So, to make a long story short, I, and whoever else, will be posting up training videos for rugby. Any videos I can find relating to rugby fitness will go up here so you can get a better idea of what sort of training makes a better, stronger, faster and yes, harder rugger.
