Ross Hanbury of Hanbury Training has kindly provided the society with a set of training plans for members to use in preparation for Season 2018/19. Ross has been working with the London Society for some time as well as having had other roles within rugby. He has confirmed he is happy for members to contact him if they want further advice with regards to their fitness training.
There are three levels of plans – “Ref Fit in 30” is an entry level plan designed to get any referee fitter with just 30 minute training sessions over 10 weeks. Above that, there is an Intermediate and an Advanced plan (each has two documents).
You might note that the intermediate/advanced training plans are over thirteen weeks, and the season starts in 11 weeks… meaning the best time to start was a fortnight ago. But the next best time to start, is now!
