The body really is a complex system made up of many chains. These chains, when they are working well, help rugby players and all other athletes move better, produce more force, and create more speed. However, when there is a weak link in the chain rugby players and all athletes in general often do not address the chains, but rather focus on the muscles and a very general movement pattern. It is time to expand that movement pattern by performing rugby training drills to address the weak link.
Physio shows us a very important sling system of the pelvic region or more specifically the Anterior Oblique Sling: Basically this system tells us that the obliques help provide stability and mobility in gait. This is essential for rugby players / athletes. Both stability and mobility are important in providing that initial stance phase of gait and then contribute to pulling the leg through during the swing phase. This system is important in helping the body of rugby players / athletes create more stability as speed increases in activities such as sprinting, but also as important as the body tries to decelerate during change of direction.
