10 x 10

i have been advised by my rugby club fitness coach to throw in some 10 x 10 sessions for bench and squats for 4-6 weeks. and then get back down to 5 x 5 at the start of the season.

anyone with thoughts on this??

i started it yesterday with a bench session and supersets on my back. was really tired yesterday but not feeling too bad today.

    i think it could be a good idea, its gonna tax you pretty hard cv wise aswell, youd never recover in season, so nows probably a good as time as ever.even just for a mix up. you need strength endurance for rugby

    cool, sounds like he does know what he's talking about.

    went today to try a 10 x 10 squat session today and hurt my back and left hammy in the very 1st warm up session. so dissapointed.

    If you keep playing rugby, you're gonna get hurt, stop now before your luck runs out.

    As far as I know, forgiveness is for the benefit of the person doing the forgiving, not the one being forgiven

    Lol! Could say the same about women Pete, but none of us do! I think my ex wife used to play rugby. One of her mates told me once she used to be a hooker.
