Well, as only AthLEAN-X and celebrity fitness trainer Jeff Cavaliere can do, we’re going to break down how you can get your body rugby “rugged”….or just plain jacked using a unique combination of high intensity conditioning and circuit based strength training to build more muscle fast.

@JDCav24 Whats the best way of drying the muscle out, i’ve gained a lot of body mass in 7 months? of working out, im 1.93 cm tall and when i started i was 93 KG, now im 100 – 101, my muscles have increased in size extremely (E.x my biceps were 39 cm, now they r 46) but still there is a thin layer of fat underneath my skin, so whats the best way of drying that fat out without loosing the gained mass and get the muscles stressed out???

Respond to this video… I also appreciate an American showing the respect to rugby that it deserves. Annoys me when they rip rugby without ever playing it before. ?

Good vid. South African myself so I like the invictus title too. My cousin showed me a Russian military routine which has some? similar techniques. As with this, you have to do the techniques to realise how strenuous some of them are. Intense work out that works the whole body.

all this fancy stuff doesnt need to happen. Just a good diet and a bodybuilding 101 program?

Anyone who is within 10-17% body fat range that diets properly for 6 months can have a muscular body and look visibly stronger. And i? think this is what happens especially when actors cut down. Everyone thinks they get god like strength gains from a certain workout…when in fact they just eat right.

the thing? is about rugby is that those guys are unbelievably strong.some of the forwards are just in incredible shape.not only stacked but the power and dynamic strength is off the chart.alot of rugby teams have introduced pilates into the work out because stability is such a huge factor in professional rugby.but out of the gym just on the training pitch the drills and contact work makes them almost superhuman.

Those short term goals are dangerous, because you may injure yourself or overtrain. If you want to live a? long and healthy life, train moderately but regularly. Always listen yourself and think what you can do or what you are not ready. Muscle growth is a slow process. And fitness is not everything in life, don’t let it be an obsession.

@matiduncan1 i hope you are referring to? the bloke in the video, otherwise you are very very wrong in regards to research done on rugby

Don’t ever make the mistake of playing rugby to get fit. You have? to be extremely fit just to play 20 minutes – to play for the full 80 minutes you need to train really, REALLY hard.

do as many of these workouts as you like,? but ill assure you: if you have never played one game of rugby, you’ll never survive one half! remember, the video is to train you how to LOOK like a rugby player, not give you the ultimate fitness of one!

Hey can you tell me the? best way to build your chest and in the shortest amount of time ?? I play rugby i have big arms and legs just need to build my chest up. Thanks in advance.

matiduncan1 December 12, 2011 at 11:33 am

this is the first of your videos i have been negative towards due to it being training geared towards rugby, sorry but its very obvious there is no experiance? in the sport or any research done on the physical demands of the game.
saying that, just as a workout and nothing to do with rugby it is good for general conditioning.

This type of training would be considered multifunctional/multidirectional strengthening and is a valuable co potent to rugby training. Our Allblacks team incorporate this type of training into their regimes. If you are lifting weights it’s ideal for battling muscle restriction and joint movements as well as ensuring you can perform at your optimum. Those who just stick to weights are failing themselves. Don’t be? afraid to touch a medicine or a Swiss ball guys they won’t bite.
