    Hello,

    What are the current thoughts for match day warm up’s? From my experience of coaching it is such a personal experience for each player, and some enjoy them and some would rather walk straight onto the pitch and play.

    For the last two seasons I have employed a gradual build up lasting 30min, varying stretching between ball work, short sprints etc. What are the view points of the Pro sides and any examples?

    Many Thanks

    5 mins dynamic stretching
    5 mins skill work (low intensity handling)
    5 mins higher intensity dynamics
    5 mins team practices (including forward/back split-higher intensity)
    3 mins team defence

    This is the ‘formal’ part of the warm-up, however, other players such as kickers and throwers may come out earlier and go through individual skill warm-ups.

    Cheers,

    Tom.

    Hi Jack, we will have an initial 10 minute window for player;s to do there own individual warm up, whether that is inside on bikes or running outside whatever they need personally then we will do 6 minutes of unit related activities, then we all come together for 6 minutes of a team warm up, broken down into simple catch & pass, then draw and pass on defenders into contact and clean out, then a defensive drill, from there 2 minutes of whatever they need to finish and back in the sheds about 7 – 8 minutes prior to the call to the field, cheers, ashley

    Brumbies Warm Up

    10min General activities including approx 4min of individual running, stretch, etc and 6 win of a dynamic ROM routine and locomotor drills
    2min of a ball drill
    6min of Units e.g. lineouts, starter plays for backs, kicking etc
    2min of a Defense Drill

    By the time we are back in the sheds the players have approx 5min before running out.

    In my experience 20min is plenty of time and sometimes this can be shortened in hotter conditionins. I believe 30min is too long (for most players).

    Cheers

    Agree 100% my old mate, individuals need to do whatever they need to do first and then build on that for the team work, I will ensure the players have around 7 minutes back in the sheds before they get the call to the field our run sheet for a 7:35pm kick off would be:

    7:05pm Individual Warm up
    7:15pm Unit warm up
    7:20pm Team Warm up
    7:26pm Return to Sheds
    7:33:30pm Call to Field
    7:35pm Kick Off

    cheers, ash

    Hey Ash

    do your rugby guys work to stay really warm (temperature wise) in that time back in the sheds ? Any tips?

    I am sure as you have probably observed sprinters are at cooking tempertaure when they start – but they lose their hear really easily

    I suspect it is their body shape – generally long – lots of heat exchange surface and not much insulation!

    Maybe rugby boys have better thermal shapes:>>>>

    thanks my friend – as always appreciated

    Not really onspeed they will mostly have track suits on but we have usually a few bikes in the locker room as well if they need to keep warm, but that last 5 minutes is fairly charged so there is not much worry that the body temp will drop away, I remember years ago when i was at a rugby league club we did some lactate measures pre game and one player was at 4mmol and a heart rate of 160 whilst sitting getting ready metally to go out and warm up, so a very variable situation, cheers, ash

    nice – that must be an interesting atmosphere to be in!

    Sprinters tend to more low key until they hit the blocks – quite a few of them actually drop heart rate in the dressing rooms

    I wonder if they are more focused on their own pattern, they dont tend to think of their opponents – whereas being a combat sport rugby and league guys have that focus as well?

    thanks again mate – i appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us

    if you are ever in Bath UK I will buy you a beer mate!
