Hey everyone, I am taking on a group of premier rugby players who lack basic fitness as a conditioning coach. I want to make each training unique but 100 percent challenging. So my main goal is to get each players fitness up to standard and see them pushing past their boundaries. In the past sessions, I saw them enjoying the unconventional workouts but could spot that not many gave 100%.
Any recommendations from athletes or other coaches here on where to draw the line between interesting drills and the hard yards including intervall sprints and long distance running. Cheers, M
