Log-Lifting And Yoga In Connacht’s Pre-Season Regime

The Connacht squad, including southern Hemisphere signings Miah Nikora and Bernie Upton, arrived back at the Sportsground last week to begin pre-season training ahead of the new Magners League season in September.

After a meeting on Monday morning outlining the pre-season campaign, which was put together by Connacht fitness advisors Kevin Cradock and Greg Muller, the Connacht players were put through some rigorous and varied exercises.

A conditioning programme has been put together with an emphasis on ‘strongman’ activity, which includes the use of tyres, logs and weights, as well as yoga, swimming and skills.
