The Top 5 Speed Training Mistakes That Are Slowing You Down on the Rugby Pitch… and What You Need to do About It

|||The Top 5 Speed Training Mistakes That Are Slowing You Down on the Rugby Pitch… and What You Need to do About It


Premiership play off season is upon us, which means that pre-season is nearly upon us! For strength and conditioning coaches like me this time of year is more exciting than Christmas and birthdays combined! For others (the fatties in the front row) it’s a somewhat less enjoyable time of year!


In any event, you’re going to want to have your pre-season training absolutely nailed if you want to maximise your progress and lay down the physical foundation that is going to dictate your success for the season to come. They don’t say grand finals are won during pre-season for no reason. A massive part of pre-season is speed training, even bigger than weights or fitness in my opinion because it is SO difficult to train during the season. And yet despite its importance it seems to be the most poorly training component of any programme when I work with amateur players or clubs.

That’s why I’ve put together this free 30 minute webinar video all about the top 5 speed training mistakes that are slowing you down on the pitch. This is one that you don’t want to miss out on. If you can take advantage of these simple tips in your own training, you’ll be significantly ahead of your peers come September. Click here now to check it out.
