    3 players did the following upper body workout today:

    A1) Wide Grip Pull-Ups: Max Reps. Rest 10s
    A2) Medium Grip Pull-Ups: Max Reps. Rest 10s
    A3) Chin-Ups: Max Reps. Rest 10s.
    A4) Close Grip Chin-Ups (hands touching): Max Reps.
    Rest 120s. Repeat once more for a total of 2 sets.

    B1) Incline DB Press (neutral grip) 12,10,8,6,4 (weight increase each set). Once through.

    C1) DB Rows on 38kgs. 2xMax Reps

    D1) 100 Push-Ups
    D2) 100 Band Pull Aparts


    All 3 players started on 8-12 for the wide grip pull-ups and finished on 2-3 close grip chin-ups. It is advisable that anyone attempting the first part of the workout can do 12 strict chin-ups.

    The workout took 50 minutes and is very demanding. The aims were to train strength and hypertrophy. As we are approaching our first league game (Sunday 7th vs Bath) we are down to 3 strength sessions per week. Trying to keep the players hard earned mass on from pre-season is a mission!


    Very nice session indeed Bris83, go well with your season, I am sure they are ready, ash


    Thanks mate, Sunday will hopefully see the fruition of 12 weeks hard slog for both coaches and players. I’ll let you know how we go!
