Rugby 7s – Training Plan

Tomorrow I sit down with my coaches to discuss my training programme structure for the next 8 weeks in the build up to stage 1 of the 7s trials on the 28th February.

(follow my coaches on twitter – Alan Wilson – @AWperformancePT, Faye Tomlinson – @fasoja, Ash Flood -@AshleyFloodPT and Tom Sutton – @tomsutton84)

My main focus points are going to be anaerobic endurance, speed and agility and power. My strength is pretty good and will improve as a bye product of the power training that will take the main weights focus.

I will be aiming to cycle my training to help me peak at the point of the trial. Rotating the programmes on a daily basis to allow my body to recover in order for me to get the absolute most out of my sessions.

Tomorrow will start with a fitness test to see what my starting place is this will consist on the RFU anaerobic fitness test, 5,10,5 speed test and a 30m and 60m sprint test.
