So… I have been training/playing rugby for 2 months and a half and I’ve been going for 1 month to the gym. Half measures Since I started training I stoped eating chips/cheetos/and all those kind of things, trying to eat some fruit and some vegetables in every meal, drinking more water but still old habits die hard and fats,red meat (a lot) and coke are still part of my...

nuestrasenoradeputazos asked: In response to your post (I couldn't find the 'answer' feature), I recommend olympic lifting (especially cleans and front-squats), hollow sprints, and lots of protein shakes. Anyway, that's what I do, (I'm a tight-head prop).

Do any of you know any specific training for a rugby prop to do at the gym? I have just been playing rugby for 2 months and going to the gym for 1 week and I would appreciate some guidance and maybe some exercises that are basic for any rugby player or some that will help me get the strength and shape of a proper prop?
Today I joined a gym!
It ha been a little over a month since I started playing Rugby and eating better (not right, just better) and today I decided it wasn’t enough so I went and found myself a gym. It’s pretty cool and I’m sore but I still have to go to rugby practice tonight. I guess now I can say Lift Heavy!

My first RUGBY match!
Last Saturday I played my first Rugby game ever and I have to say it was fucking awesome! Since I’m a rookie I only played the first half but when it was done I was at my limit I really need to get in better shape to keep up with all the running on the field. We won! I really need to practice scrumming.
Motivation in the form of movies
The other day flipping channels I encountered with Rocky III and just after a few minutes of watching Sly running and jumping and swimming and stuff I felt motivated like nobodies business and so I started getting ready and as soon as Rocko knocked Clubber Lang out I was at the door and went for a jog. And I was thinking that most times I watched a sport’s movie I ended up thinking “hey if they...
Busy days. Keeping the good work! Running, pushing and crunching. And still eating veggies and drinking plenty of water. This is how it starts :D
Very interesting day. first I walked to rugby practice which takes places in a small field 3km away from my house and so I walked. When I was walking I felt my legs a little sore so I decided to mix things up and decided to walk backwards, I supposed that works different kinds of muscles in our legs right?, so as I kinda jogged backwards cheking for holes on the sidewalk people in their cars and...
Off to Rugby practice!!!! Let’s Ruck!!!

Today some cardio and arm workout plus push ups. Thanks to all the people who gave me ideas for a motivational motto, I’m still thinking about it.
I’m in the need of a motivational motto that keeps me going when exercising and gets me out of the couch. Any suggestions?
Well today I was feeling sore for all the running in the past days but I still managed to walk 3km (1.8 miles). And I just got back from Rugby practice it wasn’t that hard but it was no picnic either but today the pitch was really dry and I’m literally sneezing dirt. No bruises today but maybe I’ll find some tomorrow as usual. and thats pretty much it. NOTE I hate eating...
I ran 1km and did some cardio. The amazing thing was that I ate 2 bananas and 2 apples and also drank plenty water. Good day!
