You need to spend 15 minutes a day developing your core skills
I often talk a lot about the importance of always doing some extra training post the official rugby session to work on and develop your core skills.
If you haven’t yet bought my new rugby training book “ An Introduction to Becoming and Remaining RugbyFit” or downloaded the EBook version then you probably have no idea what I am talking about! I suggest any player looking to improve their game should have a look at it Here.
The book is based on my 12 years as a professional rugby player having had the great good fortune to have worked under and been trained by some of the most accomplished and renown coaches in World Rugby.
The book is the detailing of all this unique experiences distilled down into easy to understand and follow chapters covering all the key areas. The book sets out and explains the rationale behind specific drills and the areas to work on. It breaks down all the different types of training you need to perform, to become better a rugby player. This is in conjunction with extensive chapters on nutrition, supplements and recovery.
You will have also read that rugby legend George Smith has been working with me and the England boys on some breakdown skills. So I have taken the opportunity to film some of these drills to give you and idea of what kind of thing we get up to.
So back to where we started. I always spend 15 minutes after training every day working on one skill, whether that is passing, tackling, breakdown or something else key to the game.
