Players Put To The Test At CrossFit Gym
Bristol squad undergo gruelling session at CrossFit Glevum
Bristol’s players will put their fitness to the test on Friday at Reebok CrossFit Glevum Gym in Gloucester.
The squad will undergo a series of high intensity training sessions as part of their pre-season regime.
CrossFit Glevum’s Dan Crisp said: “We use and implement CrossFit as our principle training programme because of the results it produces.
“CrossFit is about teaching people how to move. It’s constantly varied, functional movement executed at high intensity.”
Head of Fitness Lee Douglas added: “It will be good to take the players out of their comfort zone and into a new environment.
“CrossFit involves squatting, deadlifting, jumping, running, throwing and pulling – all movements that can be related to rugby.”
