Get in top shape for Rugby

Since the dawn of professional rugby, players have become increasingly bigger, faster and stronger.

Complete Conditioning for Rugby gives players and coaches the advice they need to keep pace with changes in the game by improving individual and team speed, power, strength, agility and endurance.

Author Paul Pook presents the latest research and information on testing, priority performance factors, programming and workouts, as well as clear demonstrations of drills. Armed with this information, players and coaches will identify and adopt the best possible conditioning options.

The accompanying DVD provides a visual presentation of key tests, exercises and drills for improving performance. The footage demonstrates both individual workouts and team workouts employing functional training methods that emphasize rugby-specific conditioning.
