Develop Elite Speed In Any Gym - Treadmill Push

We at Rugbydump Academy know that some guys simply don't have access to the amazing facilities that the pros do, so this week S&C Coach TJ Jankowski shows us how to build effective power using a simple treadmill.

If you've seen elite level rugby players train, you'll probably have seen them use sleds. They are an amazing tool to build power, acceleration and sprinting technique.

They force your body in a position that is really difficult to replicate - but I've found a way!

All you need is access to a treadmill and you can do this great technique to build power for the rugby pitch.

As stated in the video, really focus on the technique and mechanics before just trying to push as fast as possible. Perform short 4-10 reps of less than 10 seconds, make sure you get full recovery, and watch your acceleration on the pitch go through the roof!

About TJ Jankowski

TJ Jankowski is a former international rugby player for Poland rugby, who achieved their highest world ranking of 23 whilst he was part of the team.
Never the most talented player, he attributes the majority of his success to the hard work he put in at the gym, kitchen and training paddock. 

It was this reward from hard work that led him to become a coach and help other achieve greater success than he could. He prides himself on coaching and creating plans for people in the real world, not with robots.

TJ has worked with international rugby players from 4 different continents and we are thrilled to announce that he can help you as part of the Rugbydump Academy
