Killer endurance



  • pissed off with a team you are coaching?

    Give them 20 minutes of death.

    2 minute laps of the field, x 10.

    Have two minutes to complete their laps. If they finisih it in 1:15, they get 45 seconds rest, then go again etc...

    Tight Forwards should be aiming for all 10 laps inside 1:15, loosies / backs 1:05.

    THis is an OLD drill I used to get punished with 15 years or so ago. It still works a treat



  • Deadball corner to opposite deadball corner, there and back is one. You get 1 minute to complete one length, same method as Barts. DO this 10 times, see how fun it gets.

    (Approx 3000m in 10minutes. Ouch.)



  • dead ball line to try line
    dead ball line to 5m

    dead ball line to opposite 5m
    dead ball line to opposite try line
    dead ball line to opposite dead ball.

    it's just over 800m all up & Must be completed in 3 mins, usually done at the end of traingin when everyone's already completely knackered.

    The world record for 3km is around 7.30 min. Your team does this in 10?

    That's because he only has one eye..... can't watch the clock and see where they are running at the same time

    How is dead ball corner to opposite deadball corner = 300m?

    300 x 10 = 3000?



  • There and back Bar, didn't you learn trigonometry at school?



  • [quote name='"ParcDesPrinces"']There and back Bar, didn't you learn trigonometry at school?[/quote]

    Its just that he said it was one length. Fair enough.

    and 10 minutes for 3km is not easy...



  • we used to do a similar thing with terraces at our local school. had 60 seconds to run up and down three times, any time left over was rest time. we never really had a set number of times to do it, just until our coach was satisfied that we were all buggered. he was a sadistic asshole!

    Haha, had to do this last Monday at training. Quickest gutsache I've ever had.

    Yea, most do it in 10. Didn't say it was an easy thing to do.



  • There is nothing wrong with 10mins for 3km that is very good.



  • Hell yeah. thats awesome! For unfit people its impossible, for fit non-runners its a good challenge.



  • One we do is:down one touchline, opposite try-line corner, up that touchline, back across to starting position. Repeat 6-8 times flat out, forty-five seconds in between. it hurts. A lot. Works, but HURTS.



  • Thermond - those are called Henni Mullers - here in NZ anyway, after a South African prop. Put the boys throuhg those last night - they are a bastard.



  • So THAT'S who the bastard is! Knew the name, but didn't know who was responsible. Address and photo so that the front fives of the world can go back to the shape God intended, please... :twisted:



  • :evil: Hennie Mullers are evil. :twisted: :evil:



  • Sprint goal lie to 25.
    Hop 25 to Halfway
    Sprint halfway to goal line
    Hop (other leg) Goaline to 25
    Sprint 25 to 25
    Hop (first leg) 25 to goal
    Sprint to opposite corner (start point)
    30 secs rest repeat 5 times.

    Rugby Suicides and thats what they are for many a front rower



  • Bad. Very bad. One other drill that I never want to see again is:

    Dead ball line to five meter, hit tackling bag on five metre, pull it upright (to get the "Get straight up and rip" bit), back (jogging backwards as fast as possible) to try line.
    Try line to 22, hit tackling bag, pull it up, back to five.
    Five to ten, hit tackling bag, pull it up, back to 22.
    Ten to half-way, hit bag, pull it up, back to 22.
    22 to ten, hit bag, pull it up, back to 5.
    5 to 22, hit bag, pull it up, back to try line.
    Try line to 5, hit bag, pull it up, back to dead ball line.

    Repeat until puking occurs. A refinement is that everyone has to get flat on the deck when they get back to the next start-line, call the off together straight away and hit together - with a Henni Muller for each time someone shoots the line. Gets the ripping on the tackle and the getting back into the tackle line as second nature, but alternate it with Henni Mullers and the world takes on a purple tinge around the edges with these little blue sparks dancing across your field of vision... :evil: :-& 8-[



  • Similar - sprint across dead ball line, jog up touchline to tryline, sprint back across that, jog to 22, sprint across, then 10m line, sprint across... jog to half way, sprint across.. then 10m .. etc to the dead ball line. Couple of sets of that and you are gone

    Colts fitness coach was an ex army PT instructor and a complete bastard. One of only a couple of people who have made me hurl during a training session.



  • Run from tryline to other tryline and back x 10 - start every 60 seconds
    5 min break
    Run from tryline to far 22 and back x 10 - start every 45 seconds
    5 minute break
    Run from tryline to halfway and back x 10 - start every 30 seconds
    5 minute break
    Run from tryline to closest 22 and back x 10 - start every 15 seconds
    Finished.
    This session will sort out who is fit and who isnt, the unfit guys will be continually running, unable to complete the lenghts before the time, they will usually start spewing about half to three quarters of the way through the exercise. The fit guys will manage but will be hurting - a real blowout. do this exercise once a week pre season and you should be right for the comp.



  • I understand now why I shall forever remain a fat bastard.

    However, on the rare occasions I trained (rugby league), we had one particularly fit bastard who'd play follow the leader - he'd start running (usually on the line markings on the field) and you had to keep up, the only rule was every time he shouted the person at the back had to run to the front position, but remain behind him. Sometimes you'd be running on the touchline and he'd start sprinting. If you didn't keep up he'd make you do it again.



  • Sparky's diamond runs.

    Line all the side under the posts. Forwards go first. They have to run a diamond touching all four lines inside a minute. Then the backs go, they have to beat the forwards' time or else they go again straight away with the forwards. Then the forwards go and have to beat the backs' time or else they go again with the backs. Then the backs go and have to beat the forwards' time or else they go again with the forwards and so on and so on until everyone is fucked.

    I have often made kids spew with this one.  :twisted:



  • You guys are talking my language. It brings a tear to my eye. This is how I love to train.  How about 800 meter intervals, where you run at a fast jog for 700 meters, then sprint at top speed for the remaining 100.  Repeat using the same technique (jog followed by top-speed sprint for remaining 100 meters) as follows:

    Intervals:

    2 x 800
    2 x 400
    2 x 100 (all-out sprint)

    Rest about 1 minute between sets.

    This is chunk-blowing training at its finest. It builds incredible leg strength and endurance and builds mental toughness.



  • Used to do 300m sprints every training session Tues, Weds, Thur. A minimum of 10. Sprint the distance around track, walk 100m back to start, then go again. Fark me days. Evil.

    What is the distance between the lines in the diamond, Sparky? Sounds like something I could inflict at next Monday nights training session.Â



  • I think he means from under the posts to the touchline at halfway, then up to the other set of posts and down to the OTHER touchline at halfway, then back to the starting spot  😕



  • Fark me days. That distance in under a minute? I would spew just thinking about it.
