Goff Rugby Report Contributor Kevin Simoni is working on getting match fit for the summer. We asked him to use the Volt App that Volt produced in conjunction with Atavus to help athletes train for rugby. Here's his first installment.
Throughout my nine-year career playing rugby, my body has had to endure the constant wear and tear from games, practices, and heavy lifts.
As teams start transitioning from 15s rugby to 7s, so too does their focus in practice and on the pitch.
Gone are the days of practicing scrumming drills with the forwards or splitting up into forwards and backs to work on their respected skill sets. Instead, teams are coming together to work as one congruent group to capitalize on the vast amount of open space 7s provides.
As exhausting as traditional rugby can be, there is no doubt that 7s requires an even bigger gas tank, testing every player’s limits; at American International College, Head Coach Rob Guiry makes sure that his players are fit and ready for the physical demands that come along with 7s.
