Hi, I am 18 years old guy and go to Algonquin College. I live in Ottawa, Orleans and thinking of joining the Ottawa Scottish club, in the U21 men division. Training sessions should start soon and I`m hoping to be part of it. However, I really want to be ready for this. Last time I decided to join the rugby team of my high school, but I really felt like an outsider and lost my confidence then decided to leave. Not the smartest choice I ever made, but I was feeling a lot of pressure. :cryy: I`ve been training a lot to be ready for this. I mostly train my legs, plus I put weights on my legs sometimes, I guess I`m pretty fast but I need to compare with someone to be entirely sure. As for arms, I am currently doing boxing so I am training my arm a lot, plus doing lots of push ups. Stamina is really the main thing I need to work, although I do more cardio than anything else it is not that great. I go to the gym a lot, and train about 1hr30 everytime doing all kinds of exercise, but I really want to know if it is enough? Like should I really lift weights or do specific exercises? And also I am 5ft10 and I weigh about 140 is my size okay as well. I`ve heard that size doesn`t really matter in rugby, but I`ve noticed other players around my age are a little bigger, and I am wondering if I am to small for this game. :unsure: Anyways I`m completly new to the sport and I`m just looking for a couple of suggestions to help my physical self and my confidence, because I always feel better when I work hard to achieve something. Thank you.
