Rugby Leg Day [ Axe Physio ] Public

8 Views

Rugby Leg Day. If you play Rugby, you need to train your lower body. If you have a strong foundation through your legs you will be a more effective and dominant player. Rugby Leg Day exercises should have a heavy focus on compound lifts: Squat, Hinge, Thrust movements with some single leg variations as well. Other Rugby Leg Day Exercises of importance are those that focus on your Hamstrings and calf's which are important when sprinting.

A rugby leg day Should have a format generally which is:

1. MAIN Compound Lifts: Squats/RDL
2. Secondary Compounds: Lunges, Single Leg RDL,
3. Accessory: Nordic Hamstring Curl, Soleus Press

Often in preseason there is an emphasis on strength AND size. So the reps will vary between 5-8 Reps for your main compounds. 5-12 reps for secondary compounds and accessory/finisher exercises can be a large range but generally are in the upper bracket 12-30 Reps .

There is a large variance to Rugby Gym but the principles of getting strong with main compound lifts that is continued throughout the preseason. this allows for you to gauge your progress. Make sure there is some variety in 2ndry movements (Some not lots) and similarly with accessory.

Most strength days for rugby can seem boring. However the best programs I have seen in many sports like Rugby, basketball, Weightlifting etc always have a focus on developing important compounds relative to the sport with progressive overload.

Progressive overload means you increase weight/demand on the body.
