It’s always fun putting props where they shouldn’t be if the tram your against isn’t up to par.
Haha Hell ya! I play tight too and when we’re up a bit me and the loose sometimes forcefully insert into the backs. We don’t make it far, although I have scored on them before, but the real point is to smash some tiny back!! We call it “Diesel” and the coaches hate it…
As far as training in vs off season, I find I can really only maintain my strength and almost always lose some mass in season but pack it back on plus more in the off season. We also practice every day except sunday, so I never really got any rest.
