    Hi Ash,

    I would just like to say, this site has been a great help, I’m learning every day.
    Just a quick question, is there a full program available similar to the back row – Richie McCaw program, but for the back three position??

    Thanx

    Chris

    Hi there and thanks very much for your words, we are trying to bring what we do day to day to as many people as we can to attempt to assist in improving performance, do not have anything on at present for the back 3, but can look through my material and try and do something over the next week, stay tuned and I should have something for you by the weekend, cheers, ashley

    Hi Ash
    As I am coming to the end of the power programme you gave me, As we have a free 4 week block, What would you recommend to do in them 4 weeks? As an example weekly schedule and example exercises to do.

    Much appreciated

    Hi there, if you have a 4 week block with no games I would do some strength and size workouts and keep the power ticking along, make the exercises different in each session:

    Monday – Lower Power/Upper Strength

    2 x Olympic
    1 x Squat
    2 x Upper Body Bar Push & Pull

    Wednesday – Lower Strength/Upper Size & Strength Endurance

    1 x Squat
    1 x Single Leg Squat
    1 x Hamstring.Lower Back
    1 x Upper Body DB Push & Pull
    1 x BW Upper Body Push & Pull 3 x max reps no break

    Friday – Lower Power/Upper Strength

    2 x Olympic
    1 x Squat
    2 x Upper Body Bar Push & Pull

    Use the 3 week progression for power:

    Week 1 – 3 x 5 @ 60% contrast with 3 x 10 lower body plyometrics
    Week 2 – 4 x 4 @ 70% contrasst with 4 x 8 lower body plyometrics
    Week 3 – 5 x 3 @ 80% contrast with 5 x 6 lower body plyometrics

    Strength progressions on bar exercises

    Week 1 – 4 x 6 @ 80%
    Week 2 – 2 x 5 @ 85%, then 3 x 3 @ 90%
    Week 3 – 5,4,3,2,1 working up to a max single

    Upper Body Size progressions

    Week 1 – 12/10/8
    Week 2 – 4 x 6
    Week 3 – 10/8/6

    put any core work in after each workout, in week 4 of your break day a few days off maybe just do 2 sessions light and fast power based to get back into the next phase which will return you to predominantly getting ready to play each week, cheers, hope this helps, ash

    Hi there, I would put speed probably on a Thursday before a Saturday game, and conditioning early in the week say a Tuesday, once you are over the soreness from the game, cheers, ash

    yes definitley do a speed session and a repeated speed session each week, adjust you schedule to fit these in and select from the many sessions that are on offer on this site, if you feel you need more condition do 2 x repeated if you feel you need more speed do 2 x speed and 1 x the other, cheers,ash

    Hi there, I would read through the Christmas break options I posted and have a look, probably do2 – 3 weights workouts each week, maybe 1 power focus, and 1 full body strength focus, and then 2 run sessions with one being the following each week, based on your 2,400m time trial:

    week 1: 15 x 40/20 @ 110% of VO2 max = 15 x 200 m in 40 seconds with 20 seconds rest in between each effort

    week 2: 20 x 30/30 @ 125% of VO2 max = 20 x 170 min in 30 seconds with 30 seconds rest in between each effort

    week 3: 25 x 20/40 @ 140% of VO2 max = 25 x 140 m in 20 seconds with 40 seconds rest in between each effort

    cheers, ash

    Hi there I would have to say that that would be up to you to see how you are recovering from the other activities, if you were to do it early in the week it should be no worry at all, say a monday or a tuesday, the repeated speed has quite a lot of speed elements in it as well particulalry when you get to week 3, so just monitor your recovery and go from there, cheers, ash

    Ash,

    I’m heading over to Westside Barbell for 6 weeks and was wondering if it would be ok if I showed Louie some of the programs?

    Feel free to send on any questions of your own.

    Thanks,
    Jim
