Training in teen years. 6 years, 4 months ago #30

Firstly great site guys love it, I'm a Tigers supporter and think that this site is great.

I'm 16 and never really played sport all my life until the age of 15 when I was elected as sports captain for my form as a joke, in that year I became increaseingly involved by well, I was made to by my form tutor. I really learnt to enjoy sport and took to weight training and playing rugby at school. Last September I started playing Rugby for my local clubs U17 B team as a winger but as a result of short players ended up as a second row. The whole club make jokes about from number 14 to 4.

I've been following a routine called Starting Strength but noticed recently its really aimed at bodybuilding/powelifting and was wondering what a rugby off season routine would look like for you guys (mainly aimed at craig) I am aware fitness and speed matter alot in the pre/in-season but looking at getting stronger to play better at numbers4-8. Any advice?

Thanks Alot! Joe.

Hi Joe,

Its great to hear youve started to get real keen for sport, and rugby in particular. The best thing you can do is have fun. Play lots of types of sports, from football to cricket and this will build your skills for rugby. I will talk to our strength and conditioning coach for you and he can advise me on what you should be doing to enhance your strength for rugby. stay posted mate, until i get that done give anything a crack.

Cheers, Craig

Wow, cheers for the reply, I told one of my best mates about this who used to be in second row with me and it now seems like maybe 2/3 of us in similar position are interested in this. Got to say thanks alot and good luck on Saturday with London Irish will be watching.

Joe.
