    Fitness program

    Hi guys,

    I got my hands on a superb fitness deal so a cheap fitness card.
    Could anybody recommend me a decent work out program.

    I will ask my coach as well this weekend but as I'm spending lots of time on my desk I could use the exercise.

    thnx

    Make one for yourself, based on your own needs and requirements.

    I was thinking of doing so but I'm also going to start with a rugby work out.

    Will see

    Workout A
    Bench Press
    Squats
    Shoulder Press
    Dips
    Some light calf work


    Workout B
    Pullups
    Stiff Legged Deadlifts
    Rows (using either a Dumbell or barbell)
    Barbell Bicep Curls
    Some ab work



    Mon: A
    Wed: B
    Fri: A


    Mon: B
    Tue: A
    Wed: B

    etc etc

    Do 3 sets of 6 repetitions for each exercise, start off with a light weight that allows you to perform the movement with perfect technique. Once you are able to complete the 3 sets of 6 reps in good form with a given weight, then increase the weight by the smallest increment your gym allows (usually like 2.5kg)..

    Thanks guys,

    I had a chat with my coach yesterday. the coming weeks we are going to work on drills and after deciding on what I need more practice he will give me some advice for a work out.
    Techniques first

    It's not an either/or. You can do both.

    There are a lot of variables as to how this can work but the best thing is to just start. No point in having a perfect technique if you can't hit it off the square and are gassed after 5 overs.

    I know, thats why on Wednesday I will start with a program posted earlier in this thread.
    But the coach is rather picky in what to do first and luckily my condition isn't that bad.

    cheers mate.

    You know, you don't have to go to a gym if you can't make one every day. Simple exercises like push-ups, Running and etc can also help

    I know, but I bought a card at the university gym and there are tons of good looking girls, to ease the pain. As well the track and surrounding forrest where covered in ice/snow the last couple of weeks which made them quite dangerous as you didn't see where you ran.

    Anyway, going for a nice swim after a work out is a perfect ending of the day.

    1. Squats - develops strength, speed and balance

    2. Press Ups - builds chest, arm and trunk stability

    3. Bent Over Rows - works your back and develops your hip and shoulder muscles

    4. Chin Ups - tones upper body muscles


    Good luck mate!
