Rugby drill to get players lunging and working on lower body strength

Lunge drill tips

  • In this rugby drill, the player should stand with his feet about a shoulder-width apart. He steps forward with one leg, landing with the heel first.
  • At the finishing position, the knee should be bent at 90 degrees and held directly over the toes. The movement is continued until the back knee is nearly touching the ground.
  • The player returns to the starting position by driving upward with the front leg. He repeats the exercise by stepping forwards with the other leg.
  • Throughout the drill, the back should be kept straight and the head up, looking forwards. It is important to perform the drill slowly, making sure your players use good posture.
