A couple of weeks ago, our Rugby Strength Academy performance coach Dave Thomas sat down for a chat with England players Jonny May, Billy Twelvetrees and Calum Clarke to discuss England’s preparation for the Rugby World Cup.
They chatted about everything from what a typical training day looks like as they approach the tournament, to what they eat before matches, and plenty more interesting tidbits that can help you up your game.
The interview was last minute so we didn’t get a chance to ask you for your input or questions, but hopefully you will find it valuable and of interest. Watch the full interview above.
LUCOZADE SPORT HYDRATION TIPS
- Aim to consume around 2.0-2.5 litres of fluid per day plus whatever is required in training. Most people don’t come near that. If you’re properly hydrated your urine should be pale in colour. If it’s dark and concentrated, you’re more than likely dehydrated.
- Start the day with a glass of water. Alternatively a mug of freshly boiled water and a slice of lemon. In summer add a fresh sprig of mint and fresh lemon slices to a jug of cold water.
- Drink little and often through the day and match fluid intake to sweat losses during training.
