My 5 week Training programme

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

My 5 week Training programme My training programme will be specific for rugby, and will be aimed for a second row forward. While planning this training programme I must consider S.P.O.R.T. (Specificity, Progression, Overload, Reversibility, Tedium) By this I mean that the training must be specific to rugby forward, and improve the things that are essential to a forward: Primarily, Endurance and Strength. I will progress my training in order to improve , and therefore I will not reverse. I will work my body harder than normal. Also I should vary my training programme in order to avoid tedium(or, boredom). I must also consider F.I.T.T: Frequency: I must train regularly. My body will need time to recover between training sessions and so I should space the training sessions out over the week. Intensity : I will not improve my fitness unless I work hard enough to make my body systems adapt. I must understand my training threshold. Time : If I wish to improve my aerobic fitness then my training sessions must gradually increase in length. Type : My training programme must include the type of activities By the end of my training programme I aim to be able to bench press 80lbs's for 20 reps and considerably improve my line-out jumping in rugby. I will make sure that before each training session I will do a thorough warm up and warm down: The warm up should include a period of light jogging to increase the blood flow to muscles. ...read more.

Useful for line-out jumping. Tricep Dips: Put arms behind back, rest on bench then dip. It is important to have exercises which concentrate on the same muscle groups not next to each other. It allows muscles to recover and disperse of the lactic acid build up. It also avoids a strain or pull. At home I will use my weights bench to do the bench press and Inclined bench press(works pectorals harder). I will also do bicep curls, press ups, and sit ups. I aim to improve my upper body strength which is done by doing heavy weights for lower repetitions. Upper body strength, is needed practically every part of rugby. I.e. tackling, rucking and scrum. It also gives you a greater impact when you make contact with an opposition player while running with the ball. I will now plan my training sessions: WEEK 1 I will start week1 with two training sessions. I will have the sessions on days where I will not be playing rugby in order to avoid fatigue. TUESDAY:(weight training)2x 10reps of bench pressing 65lb's 2x10reps of inclined bench pressing 65lb's 2x1min of bicep curls, 15lb's on each arm. FRIDAY: (circuit training) 40 secs for each station, 2 full circuits, with 30 second rests in between stations. Evaluation: Weight training felt fine although I found the inclined bench press much harder than the normal bench press, so I will keep the number of reps to 10 rather than increase to 20- as I will do with the regular bench-press. ...read more.

Conclusion

20 press-ups SUNDAY: (weight training)2x 20reps of bench pressing 80lb's 2x 20reps of inclined bench pressing 80lb's 2x 2mins of bicep curls, 15lb's on each arm. 2x 20 press-ups Evaluation: I was only able to do an upper body work out in Fridays circuit training. This was due to a groin injury sustained in rugby practice two days earlier. Therefore, I went to the gym to use the weight machines. The exercises I did were upright rowing, bicep curls, bench press, and pull ups. Overall Evaluation Overall , the training programme was a success. I achieved my primary aim of being able to bench press 80lb's and I think I have improved my line-out jumping, although I will need to play in more Rugby matches to find out if this is true. My training programme started slowly, as it was more of learning curve in the first week or so. My circuit was too short in the first week, but in the following weeks I managed to set it to the right level for me. Due to the circuit training I have done I feel that my aerobic fitness has improved somewhat, and that I have improved the strength in my legs i.e. my hamstrings, quadriceps, calfs (gastrocnemius). My upper body strength has improved, as I am now able to bench -press 80lb's - something that I struggled to do before I started the training programme. If I were to give my training programme a mark out of 10 I would give it: 8/10. ...read more.
