Rugby Fitness Blast
This is a session that I did the other day in my down week from the 6 nations tournament. Due to the volume of rugby training we do, and the fact that I get a lot of running through my legs in the week, when it comes to conditioning I like to do it in the gym and take some of the running load out of it. This is a quick session that I put together that targets the whole body and gets a good level of fatigue without leaving you sore.
The idea is to try and mimic the kind of feeling you have when you are working continuously during a match. This is a full body circuit which will hit your legs and upper body.
You are doing the following in order with no rest. Once you have done the 4 exercise you rest, then repeat the whole circuit 5 times.
Versaclimber - 20 seconds flat out.
Battle ropes - Double waves. 20 seconds flat out.
Lizard crawl - 10meters back and forth for 20 seconds flat out.
Medicine ball slams - 20 seconds flat out.
