Every day that we have a rugby field session, we perform a thorough training preparation / activation in the early morning.
These sessions will or may include:
– MRT (1v1 with coaches)
– PNF (1v1 with coaches)
– unstable loads
– core and hip activation
– rotational strength
– multijoint resistance movements
– position specific core and hip activation
You cannot expect players to perform at optimum level without a thorough preparation. If this is done earlier in the day, then the on field warm can be highly specific and skill based.
