Training of a Champion Week 2

We ended another great week of training the other day and now that I've had an opportunity to observe and test Ben we have a better feel for how the training program will evolve. 

One word can describe how our strength training is going....STRONG!!!  We're moving big weights and moving them explosive.  However,  we need to move the improvements from the weightroom to the rugby pitch.  So now time for us to add in aglility, quickness, and some plyometrics into our training plan.  

Now I already knew that this is one strong dude!!  I mean come on look at the sport he makes his living at and then look even closer to the position he plays.  He is athletic and he is strong but there is something missing for him and he knows it or I would still be in San Antonio not here.  Before I came Ben already had a list of goals for the off season training.  Together we broke those goals down into goals for each training cycle and each training session.

Do you have goals that guide your training?  Are you secure enough to be one of the best in the world at your sport yet sit back and evaluate yourself honestly?  Without goals it's hard to have focus in your training or in your life.  How do you know that your training plan is working?  Write them down and put them where you can see them.  I heard a quote once and it applies here, "When you write down your goals you own them"

Play Hard...Train Harder...NO EXCUSES
