Rugby Training Session with the lads

We held a great training session up at the IRFU rugby fitness gym
base up in Carton House there on Monday.

Up went the white board as I had a session planned for the rugby guys and to improve their rugby fitness

(and the 20 minute search for a pen that worked)

The interns working with the head coach went for
the bench press straight away

Youth of today eh?

I wrote up a great program – so I thought.

But then you realize that this is the end of the season.

And the boys are beat up, but still standing.

I had one big bang exercise – the front squat.

By the end of the ‘audit’ I had 4 versions for that
that everyone could do.

You gotta be flexible whilst keeping to the principles.

Banged up shoulders and a grip? use a safety bar

Knackered neck – keep compression off with a
trap bar

Ankle out of action – try a trap bar

Can’t externally rotate the shoulder very well use
the cambered bar.

The landline is great for a bench press alternative.

So there you go. We had great intensity and work was
done.

Every body happy.
