What Pre-Season Means to the Pro's


Luke Sherriff, founder of Proverb, is an ex-professional rugby player having played for England 7's and Harlequins. Luke spent his rugby career at the top of his game, training hard and playing to win. He was put through a rigorous training regime to build both his physical and mental fitness to peak condition. One of the most important and most intensive training periods was Pre-Season. 

We asked Luke three key questions about Pre-season;


1.What does Pre-Season mean to you?

"Quite simply hard work. It's a period of focused, intense training with no distractions. This is the time to get ahead of the game"

2. What is the hardest thing about Pre-Season?

"That's simple - the shock. The absolute shock. It never ceases to amaze me how after a month or five weeks off you think you must have retained some of fitness. But, bam, straight in. First session. HELL. The worst thing. Day One. 

3. Why is Pre-Season so important?

"Team bonding. It's tough, it's relentless, it's going to build bonds. In that six to eight week Pre-Season period you're just focusing on the team, and what needs to be be done. Getting it together, doing something really tough, coming out the other side better people, better results, a better team"
