  • Warming up in a team (rugby) environment.
  • Integrating sprinting and speed work into the warm up.
  • Aligning competition and training warm ups.
  • Designing warm ups for unique competition environments, and making the warm up (and athlete) adaptable.
  • The role of adrenaline in competition warm ups.
  • Bringing focus through the warm up.
  • A detailed look at rugby warm ups.
  • Making warmups fun, and advantages/disadvantages of integrating games into warming up.
  • Letting athletes individualize warm ups and take ownership.
