G'day mate,

Cardio for rugby or any sports really has changed quite alot in recent times. Gone are the days of 10km runs to increase cardiovascular fitness. Instead what you need to be focused on is mimicing the energy systems and movement patterns involved with rugby and incorporating your cardio training in sports specific training. You will still need to do LSD, Interval training and Fartlek training but the more you can train in 'game style' situations the better. Speed and Agility training will also help.

Before I can give you any specific advice I need some info on the following:
- medical probs / injuries
- current fitness level
- current training regime
- specific goals

The best way to acheive this so that you peak at the right time is to plan your training over the calendar year using periodisation and the season as a guide to what training goes where.

Yours in Fitness & Health,
