Agility Training for Rugby
If you can bare to watch, take a look at some of the more catastrophic non-contact injuries that happen in rugby. If it isn’t a hamstring tear during top speed sprinting, it will almost certainly occur during a agility type movement like cutting or sidestepping. Agility is one of the biggest sources of injury in the game, period. Mess up agility training, and you can expect a lot more time sat on the sidelines, injured.
Not only this but agility is a hugely important physical quality for performance. Agility is hugely related to your ability to beat defenders and create space in attack, and to close down defenders, optimise your position and make tackles in defence. In this ebook, I’ll give you the top 10 lessons I’ve learned on agility training so you can do all three: stay healthy, be lethal in attack, and be a predator in defence.
All the key elements of agility are covered- the science underpinning agility performance, key movement patterns, what drills to do and when, how training should progress throughout the year etc. This book is nearly 30 pages long and contains information you can put to use right away in your training.
