The following performance indicators are NRL Rugby League testing data provided by our Pro Rugby Coach and Trainer Jeremy Hickmans – Performance Director for the Newcastle Knights.
These same exercise tests are used in our Rugby Training Programs to adapt our training programs to YOU. And when you add new test results after 4 weeks of training you can see how you have improved, and your program will update to your new level so you can keep on improving.
So how do you compare to the Rugby Pros?
