Rugby fitness training – Off season focus.
The off-season is the time to dedicate your total focus to improving fitness. It is the few months of the year when your are free from knocks and bruises. This means you are able to focus entirely on developing your performance levels. Any off season programme should be focusing on the main requirements for performance. This can be separated into;
In the gym you can develop your slow speed and fast speed strength. You can also gain muscle, increase core strength and rehabilitate injuries.
On the track you can develop your speed, acceleration and anaerobic fitness. You can work on increasing your speed endurance as well as working on your agility skills. Fast speed strength can be developed through plyometrics.
Form the base upon which all else is built through a well designed aerobic conditioning routine. Varying from steady pace runs to special endurance drills mimicking the demands of an actual match.
Posture and rehabilitation
If you posture is out or you are carrying injuries the off season is a great time to reshape your body as you are not in pain from the collisions experienced during contact.
