  1. Default Rugby Pre-Season Diet

    Hi, I'm starting my own personal pre-season rugby training soon, I was wondering if anyone had any diet plans? (I've looked around the internet and there are only 1 day examples) I would like it to be fairly long (at least 3 weeks preferably) but anything at all is appreciated.


    I'm 6 foot 3, 15st. I'm a second row/back row player, my main goals are to cut my body fat (this is more from a looking better point) and to increase muscle mass and power.

    I'm allergic to Peanuts, Hazlenuts, Walnuts etc.

    Almonds, Brazil nuts and Cashew nuts are fine

    I will only be taking Impact Whey protein and Creatine monohydrate

    Are you saying you want someone to write you a 3 week diet plan (with meal plans in)?

    Asking a bit much I think!!!

    Also, a quick warning - it's very hard to gain muscle mass and lose body fat at the same time. Unless you are a complete beginner...

    im in the same situation. i was recommended to an online personal trainer. if you email inter-train@hotmail.co.uk and let them know what you need then they will give you some advice. there is a charge which can be paid through paypal if you go ahead with there proposal. its not expensive though. its worth giving them an e-mail just to see what they say?

    I think you need to choose one aim first before you start looking at a diet. If you are training for rugby surely you will be doing more strength and power work which is sport specific. To gain muscle you will need to eat well for calorific excess and train for hypertrophy which is quite different to the power/ strength work. And for losing weight you need to be in calorific deficit.

    You can probably eat to lose weight and train for power and strength but trying to put muscle on at the same time is too much.

    In short pick what you want to train for and then look at dietary advice
