Rugby players must possess equal amounts of speed, agility, power and strength - a combination rarely required in any other sport. To fuel these physical requirements it is vital that individuals follow a detailed and structured nutritional plan.

Box 1


Rugby League and Rugby Union are two of the most physically demanding sports on earth. Rugby players are continually on the move during a game - reacting to the opposition, adjusting field position or generally keeping up with the play of the ball. With repetitive phases of play and quick turnover of the ball, rugby players need great amounts of muscular and aerobic endurance as well as speed, agility, power and strength. With such a myriad of physical attributes to fuel, the reliance on a sound nutrition and supplement strategy is vital for optimum performance. Combined with a detailed training and nutritional plan, a number of sports supplements can help improve performance and push physical capabilities beyond competitors.

Helpful Tips

Energy to play

Carbohydrates are essential to fuel almost every type of activity and will help keep muscle glycogen concentrations high. When concentrations are low performance will be negatively affected. It has been shown that insufficient amounts of carbohydrates can also affect co-ordination as the Central Nervous System becomes fatigued. ONE Isotonic is an extremely effective carbohydrate drink which can be consumed before, during and after exercise to great effect.

Fuel to aid recovery and help growth

The physical demands of Rugby cause the athlete's body to grow and adapt in order to become more efficient and skilled for the various tasks involved within the game. As muscles become fatigued from exercise it is essential to give them the fuel to recover. Protein and carbohydrates are regarded as essential for helping the body recover and grow after physical exercise. Recovery XS combines protein, carbohydrates and a number of other excellent ingredients to help promote recovery after exercise. As protein is also viewed as the building block of muscle it is also useful to use a protein supplement like MP MAX® True Whey throughout the day.

Improving performance

Once the basic components of your diet are in place, such as carbohydrates and proteins, it is useful to look at products that can enhance your performance and push your fitness beyond your opponents. MP Max Exceed contains a number of extremely functional ingredients that specifically designed to work synergistically to increase strength and endurance.

Looking after your body

Vitamins play a huge role in helping the body recover, stay healthy and also flush out any unwanted toxins or free radicals. A comprehensive multi vitamin such as Alpha Men (Super Multi Vitamin) should be a part of any serious athlete's daily supplementation. With the huge amount of knocks and physical stress endured in Rugby it is also a good idea to include a supplement such as Super Omega 3 to look after your bones and joints.
