General training tips
  • Ensure you complete a warm up (use dynamic stretches) and cool down (use static stretches) for all sessions (see the warm-up and cool down sections)
  • Good nutrition and hydration are extremely important to support your conditioning
  • Wherever possible, get the help of a registered or accredited physical conditioning coach
  • Try to train with someone else or, even better, train in groups following similar programmes
  • Try to keep your sessions fun and varied
  • Try to develop match fitness through conditioned games and Rugby-specific drills such as those shown below
