    as a fullback your speed should be your priority, however all rugby players need to have good core strength and explosiveness - I'd say all exercises and areas are important, however the full body ones - squats, deadlifts, power cleans, etc. are the most important - make sure you do 8-12 reps and be explosive - which means quick controlled repetitions and lower weight than maxing...there also other specific rugby aspects to consider - lower back, neck strengthening, etc.

    as a fullback for speed though, sprints, agility drills, plyometrics will help you....BTW if this is too technical PM me and I'll translate it for you into German, I'm fluent.

    I'm developing a summer workout program for my team right now. I will go ahead and post that when I'm done. Then you all can debate it or whatever. Give me till this weekend.

    As a fullback you are the last line of defence for the team. When the ball comes to you it is important that have accurate and powerful kicks. It is also important that be able to tackle very well. Speed is also key. I recommend sprinting drills. IF you go on runs look for uphill running. Try sprinting up the hill and jogging on teh flat ground this should provide you with strong legs which is important in an efficient tackle.
  7. so is hould sprint up hill dan jogg down then, how many times should i sprint up and how long should the sprint be and ho wlong the jogging time?? are there any other drills i can do??
