column-gray-032715

Over the last four years that I have been writing for elitefts I have written a number of position-specific programs. I thought it was high time I looked at a complete year in focus to allow you to see progressions across the training year and how you can best apply the information to your team’s environment and playing level. This is the exact weight training program that I applied to the Panasonic Rugby team for the 2014-15 season.

Players returned to training in early April after having the majority of March away from the training center. The team is made up of both full-time professional players and players that are considered amateurs, employed by the company and released to train and play for the team.

Pre-Season Phase 1: April/May

Players are divided into various training groups based on specific areas that they need to improve in over the pre-season time. This is in conjunction with coaches and players as well as strength and conditioning staff.
