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 22m
    dead ball line to 10m
    dead ball line to halfway
    dead ball line to opposite 10m
    dead ball line to opposite 22m
    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?

    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.

  • 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-[
