August 1
Rugby position specific fitness

Props scrummage and ruck, wingers sprint.

Split the players into positional groups during training to work on more specific fitness to their positions. During this fitness, base fitness will improve, but the players can replicate what they are likely to be doing in the game.

For example:
Front five:
Two minutes physical: try boxing ruck pads, wrestling, 1 v 1 tackling.
One minute running
One minute explosive running
One minute lifting: heavy bags, other players
One minute footwork and contact
REST!

Back three:
Two minutes long sprints: a length of the pitch every 30 seconds
One minute physical
One minute explosive running
One minute sprint and jog backs
One minute footwork and contact

AND
Train as you will play during training sessions. Work hard for the exercises, then a proper rest in between before returning to hard work. Encourage good rest and then encourage intensity.
