    Thanks well the thirds play sussex west 2 so just your average club level.

    The first XV play londen south 1 not sure but i think its the league below national 2 so semi pro.
    So if the G prem is league one the firsts are in league 5

    i like all these rugby journals may make one myself.


    just a thing about your legs not recovering for a game...what ive found works for me is not doing heavy back squats during the season and just doing front squats and deadlifts i duno why this works for me. also cardio before a game id rest and maybe do a rehab/prehab gym sesh.
    people ask me how to train, and i answer "i look at what you do and then i do the exact oposite"


    if your family was captured and you were told you needed to put 100 pounds onto your max squat within two months or your family would be executed, would you squat once per week? Something tells me that you'd start squatting every day

    Thanks for the advice but with squats im not moving big heavy weights like you so the volume is lower and the effects on my cns but when i start squating 150kg + il look into it.

    My cardio sesson are short like 15 mins max with some core and delevopment stretchs seeing my flexability is fail.

    Ps: think some of my spelling wrong and posting this using my mobile cant check it.

    thats true last year i made all my pb's in march april time near the end of the season.

    don't worry about the spelling once you start going through the posts i make i make spelling mistakes almost every sentence.

    ohh and i aint shifting those heavy wieghts anymore. i just like to keep the e-stats.

    Gaining weight and strenght shouldnt have a bad effect on my game aslong as i dont gain fat. Was longing at a pound a week but this might not happen seeing im cleaning up my diet so should burn some body fat. Looking to go into cutting mode in the off seaaon.

    Had a great training sesson on monday night done 20 minates of fitness and then some passing drills then coaches said to sharpen our passing and catching we were given eggs to use as balls so after all the drill all hell brakes lose guess that what happen if you give 20 rugby players eggs lol.

    it is a bodybuilding workout but its only for 8 weeks. The guy who has given me the programme said its to do with peroidisation think thats the spelling. He was talking to me about preparing my ligments and tendons for the long term and building a solid base.

    Hes a bit of a beast seen him deadlift 280 kg and bench 160kg at 95kg body weight.
