1. Exercise Safely During the Coronavirus Pandemic

    Here in the UK and around the globe we are all facing huge changes to our daily lives due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Since March many countries have been in lockdown with residents allowed outside for only certain activities. In the UK outdoor exercise has been on the allowed list throughout.

  5. American Football versus Rugby: Understanding the Key Differences

    For the uninitiated, rugby and American football can look remarkably similar to one another. Yes, some differences are immediately apparent — rugby is much more often a "free for all" compared to the rigidly structured plays one finds in the National Football League in the USA. That said, the similarities aren't a coincidence: both sports share a common ancestor, a sport developed by the British in the 1800s. Over time, the two games diverged, the modern rulesets emerged, and both pursuits developed their own passionate and dedicated fan bases. Today, rugby remains far less popular in North America than in other nations around the world, and American football is largely just that: American.

    Even so, there are plenty of intriguing similarities to note between the games alongside their differences. Are you curious about how the mechanics of the two games compare? From the size of the playing field to the way scoring works and

  6. Diet of a Professional Rugby Player: Learn how to eat like the pros

    Put on a professional rugby game and watch a whole match, and one thing should stand out above everything else: the sheer physicality of the players involved. While football requires endurance and American football requires strength and agility, rugby requires all these things in spades. Not only are the rugby players you see in professional leagues at the top of their game skill-wise, but they're also often close to their peak physical condition. Otherwise, there's no way they'd be able to take the hits they do and keep on scrambling for the ball play after play. It's a testament to their commitment to training for the game they love. How do they do it, though? It's not just a matter of packing in cardio. Beyond a tough and demanding exercise regimen, rugby players know they need to eat well, too. They burn tonnes of calories both practising and playing, and their bodies need plenty of nutrients to aid in the recovery process and prepare for the next round of intense activity. We can learn

  7. The Absolute Essentials for Any Rugby Kit

    2nd November 2017.What sport provides more of a raw challenge than rugby? Even American football, a distant cousin to rugby and with its fair share of rough handling, doesn't match the level of full contact aggression you'll find in rugby. That's part of what makes it so appealing. Not only is every hard-fought victory that much sweeter, but the physical strength required to play the game on a regular basis demands robust physical fitness. That demand provides plenty of motivation to stay fit so that when it's your time to shine on the pitch, you can make the big plays and win the day. Before you can do that, however, you'll need to make sure you've got the proper gear. From the clothes on your back to the guard in your mouth, there's a lot that goes into a good rugby kit. What should you focus on, and what types of items are the most important to have? It's worth taking the time to consider carefully what you'll need to enjoy the game while also staying safe. It's all too easy to
