So this is this is just that physical conditioning. It's just really kind of like getting the boys to really build up their conditioning that's relative to you know areas of the game as well. So it's got different as you can see there's different elements of it that will you would see in a game from tackling from clearing from having to sort of move off the ground deal with, you know, different situations. So it's preparation physical preparation. So they're working on sort of about 30 secs roughly about 30-40 seconds work and then they rest and then their partner takes over go for about the same time and then they move around to the four stations.This one here. It's just working on conditioning. So getting the boys working really really hard to get back to their feet and working under pressure. So just working and using the body to manipulate round and get back to the feet strength. Come on Luke. Come on. Luke work work. Keep going. Let's go again. Keep fighting Luke. Keep fighting.

But I guess that's not really the focus at this stage. It's more just getting back into training after six weeks off of training. So it's more about getting back the physical fitness. So the High High Reps in a 30 seconds on 30 seconds off. So Works arrest ratio of sort of 121. We try to get the guys that sort of the aerobic base of fitness. And as we sort of progress through generally will increase their rest time to make sure the intensity sort of comes up and the volume comes down building into the season. The bag hits? Yeah. That's just getting your body prepared for the collisions like if in a game obviously we have we have to hit people obviously, we don't want to be doing that. We still got 12 weeks to the season starts. but we're getting used to the impacts on the bags and getting up and down off the floor is a massive part of the game. So it's just all trying to be as relative towards rugby as possible.
