An insight into a Premiership Rugby training session. Do the top teams train differently to amateur clubs and schools?
Bring the pliers because if every player is getting better, you team gets better very conscious with our group making sure that we're creating a positive environment where there's lots of encouragement and learning and that we don't want training ever to be boring or not stimulating or not challenging. We do warm-ups to prepare the body for activity. We call it an s&c or a locomotive warm up. So that was just the boys getting moving and the strength and conditioning coaches drive that Mobility work for the hips hips and ankles soft tissue preparation for the posterior chain. So hamstrings calves and just in general movement drills just to prepare them for the for the bulk of a recession. If we keep the lock the one that's fairly light hearted. That's that's the opportunity. They have to have a chat before they start training for they have to you know, switch on grab a drink and then we're going to split. We had a blue team running the opponent's plays and the Green Team running our plays for the weekend. Get on him get on him already that's better. If you've got a good driving platform, you can look penalties out of teams and control field position. Basically through the penalties this first block we're going for five minutes. It's flat stick. I would say Green Team attacks in blue team will take we punched him through getting really super quick ball lightning quick ball from there. Okay Green Team on the try line Blue Team out. We tend to train a really high intensity. Okay. Let's play up from here. Hi Jay second Bull night. Portal boys reload reload, you got to reload faster. We try and train over speed training. So we did three blocks of five minutes at overspeed where basically we don't want anyone to walk for five minutes. And so we're constantly moving with challenging the players to think faster growing females that scrubbed My drinks him down this way in five four. Yeah. Hey free-kick Arch. Okay blue team, Joe gotta grab a shield. We're making decisions faster in training. Then we have to Indigo and the idea is you know is the is to have that overload effect in training. So when we get to a game
Confident players have the will and desire to perform. Wales seemed to have lost their way with players looking deflated and lacking leadership, create an environment where players know what is expected of them and develop those skills
Doing the same thing week in week out isn’t good for anyone. The players will get bored and may lose interest in training. You can make sessions more fun by mixing it up and throwing in fresh ideas. This cone game is different, original and is great for building communication skills in defence.
