Welcome, rugby players.

Aim: Over the coming weeks I will be making a training regime for the rugby season in which I hope to transform myself from an average rugby player into an extraordinary rugby player.

Why? For years I have been playing rugby and I have been decent at it. I love rugby so much that I want to possibly play rugby at a professional level. I make a few representative teams every now and then but I would love to improve my weaknesses to become a highly skilled rugby player.

What's in it for you? You can gain insight into my training. You will receive tips, workouts, diets, etc. I will hope that you can offer constructive feedback also. All of this for FREE.

Firstly I think you need to know some details about me…

Age: 14 (quite young but this is relevant for all ages)
Weight: 50kg
Height: 158cm
Position: Fly half/Fullback/Halfback
Country: Australia

I have been playing rugby since I was 4 years old. I am very passionate about the sport. I love watching it, playing it and refereeing it. As I said before, I would love to play the sport professionally.

I am very good at skills (passing, kicking, etc.) but there is definitely room for improvement. I am a decent tackler and I'm an average runner (usually come in the top 10 in school carnivals).

I hope to start training ASAP.

Any comments would be extremely appreciated.

Visit back to this site regularly for more training information soon.

Obtaining Equipment

Welcome back to my training blog that is designed to help me develop as a player and also provide you guys with a bit of insight into my training, nutrition, tips and results. As we are just getting back into the season my boots are a bit dusty and some of my equipment has just seemed to disappear. Therefore this post is made for me to acquire my equipment.

Luckily I managed to go searching around to find: https://rugbytrainingsite.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/capture.png?w=331&h=292

- 1 x Sharp Shooter Kicking Tee (large) – so that I can get under the ball when I kick for goal.
- 1 x Gilbert Vector Size 5 Rugby Ball – so that I can practice my passing/kicking, etc.
- 10 x Cones – so that I can mark out some places for my training.
- 1 x Fitbit Charge HR (which I wear every day) – so that I can track my workouts, steps, heart rate, etc.

However I do need to buy some more supplies…

What do I need in my shopping cart?

- 3 x Gilbert Rugby Balls – if I get more rugby balls it will make it easier for me to train as I will only have to collect the balls every 3 kicks, etc. Once I have found a site that is cheap I will order these and let you know where I got them from.

Please leave a comment if there is any other equipment I might need.

Training Routine

Welcome back to my training blog. I have finished planning my training routine. Unfortunately I have been sick so I haven't been able to start training however I think I'm on the mend. Nothing bad, just had a cold. I will hope to commence my training tomorrow (Monday 4th April 2016).

This is what my training routine looks like: https://rugbytrainingsite.files.wordpress.com/2016/04/1.jpg?w=1462

Rugby Drills

What I mean by rugby drills is kicking and passing. So basically just skill training.

Kicking will involve:

Place kicks – a few attempts at goal from different measured distances and positions. Then I can easily calculate my average kicking accuracy, percentage and weaknesses.
Drop kicks – a few attempts at goal from different measured distances and positions. Then I can easily calculate my average kicking accuracy, percentage and weaknesses.
Punt kicks – a few attempts to kick the ball from my 22m line to the 50m line so that it goes out. Both on the left and right side. This way I can determine my average kicking accuracy, percentage and weaknesses.
Passing is obviously a lot more difficult to practice as you generally need a buddy to help you. However, at home I have a wall and I have used charcoal to draw 5 circles. I have to pass the ball into these circles. This will improve the accuracy of the pass.

Gym Sessions

I have a home gym that has a rowing machine, cycling machine, weights, weight machine, yoga mat, punching bag, pull up bar, skipping rope etc. With the equipment I have I will work out my legs, upper body and do some serious cardio. I have already got a gym routine that include runs, swims, cycles, rows, weights, etc. which I could possibly share with you in one of my next blogs.

On Tuesdays and Fridays I have rugby training and on Sundays I have a match.

Regarding nutrition I am not on a strict diet but I am trying to eliminate any sugar.

Please leave a comment in regards to my training. Any criticism and guidance would be appreciated.
